It’s been an hour since Adele’s ‘Oh My God’ has been playing on repeat on my speakers, from her new album 30. It’s nothing like her other songs on the album. The music is upbeat, the vibe feels like a cross between Jazz and disco to me, the kind that makes you want to sing and dance along. And her voice is like dessert – smooth, like your favorite flavored cream being poured into a glass.
‘Rolling in the deep’ was the first song by Adele that I had heard many years ago, her powerful smouldering vocals lamenting a broken relationship and what could’ve been. With ‘Oh My God’, Adele seems to be more at peace with her decisions and past relationships. It’s a sentiment that would resonate with a lot of listeners.
I ain’t got too much time to spare
But I’ll make time for you to show how much I care
Wish that I’d let you break my walls
But I’m still spinning out of control from the fall
Boy you give good love… I won’t lie
It’s what keeps me coming back even though I’m terrified
I know that it’s wrong
But I want to have fun
Oh my God, I can’t believe it, out of all the people in the world
What is the likelihood of jumping out of my life and into your arms?
Maybe baby I’m just losing my mind ’cause this is trouble, but it feels right
Teetering on the edge of heaven and hell is a battle I cannot fightLyrics of Adele’s new song
I don’t usually write about music, but it’s been so long since I last played a song on repeat, that I couldn’t help but write an appreciation post. Although it’s not fun to be dragged into a space where you just want to listen to one song over and over again.
