Congrats to Grammy winner Adele, whose latest hit Someone Like You is scientifically proven to make you cry! To celebrate, let’s enjoy this cover, performed by a busker working for quarters in a New York subway stop.
When I watched this video last week, the morning was cold and grey (by Los Angeles standards), and I was huddled in bed with my laptop and cat, trying to procrastinate starting my day. And all of a sudden there I was, watching someone sing his heart out in such a beautiful simple way, all thanks to a stranger with a smart phone who shared a video with the entire world. And I had one of those moments that I don’t have that often anymore: I remembered just how fucking magical this all is.
For that, I’d put five bucks in that guy’s hat. If there was a way.
