S for Someone Like You

Our sweetest songs are those that tell of saddest thought, writes the poet Shelly in the poem an Ode to a Skylark.

The song Someone like You, by UK Singer and Songwriter, Adele proves it. I loved the song when I first heard it and I still love it.

The song , the last one written for her second album 21, belongs to the soul genre of pope songs which speaks about unrequited love and broken relationships.

Adele revealed that she was struggling emotionally when she composed it:
"When I was writing it I was feeling pretty miserable and pretty lonely, which I guess kind of contradicts 'Rolling in the Deep'. Whereas that was about me saying, 'I'm going to be fine without you', this is me on my knees really. She discussed further the inspiration of the song: "I can imagine being about 40 and looking for him again, only to turn up and find that he's settled with a beautiful wife and beautiful kids and he's completely happy... and I'm still on my own. The song's about that and I'm scared at the thought of that.”

Adele was literally discovered by the Social networking media when her friend posted her demo on Myspace and owing to its popularity she received a recording contract from XL Recordings in 2006.

The song went on to win
