This Adele song...
« on: October 23, 2015, 05:02:48 PM »
I don't get why the Internet is swooning* over the new Adele single that was released today.



Its ok I guess.  Not really a catchy sing-along kinda song.  Lyrics are a bit depressing.

Thoughts?

Edit: also, you have to skip to 1:15 in the video to get to the actual song.

*based on the 3 tweets I've seen so far.

I'm pretty sure the flip phone is part of the flashbacks.

As to why the internet is swooning, it's Adele. She hasn't released a song in a while and it's Adele.

I'm not the biggest Adele fan but her stuff has a way of growing on me after a bit. The first couple times I've heard the song I was like meh, but it's an OK now.

As for the song, it wasn't bad but also wasn't great. I give it a meh.

They took away the desk phones and the supe picked out fucking flip phones.  Glad I was able to weasel/keep my desk phone.  If they had given me a fucking flip phone I would have tossed the POS into a drawer never to be used.  Goddamn sad.

Most of my calls are on my headset at work anyway.  I want nothing to do with their year 2000 electronic leash.

Ah... I didn't get it.

Of course, jokes aside, I had my flip phone until a few months ago so it's plenty plausible in my head that it was happening.

Showed it at work and we all agreed it was a better version.  And that the videography was excellent.
