2 Someone Like You - Adele Someone Like You - Adele Cover Art

Such a beautiful famous song that even non-Adele lovers know it. Gorgeous and should DEFINITELY be voted the number one ballad song of all time. Takes your breath away how pretty it is, doesn't it?

This song just gives you an insight to Adele's painful past, she sings with such pain and grace. The thing which makes me love it is because she wrote it. AMAZING

It's a great song, by a great singer-songwriter. It reminds me of a song I wrote for my ex-girlfriend.

It Does sound like a ballad because it can be read and told about someone's relationship

Madonna does the best ballads to me, even though she doesn't have the fifth octave like Mariah who cares?

Crazy for you, Liver to tell, Spanish eyes, Rain, Take a bow, Power of goodbye. The list goes on and on. Madonna is the Queen of pop but also the Queen of pop ballads.

All hail her majesty MADONNA.

This song is beautiful as heaven, Madonna does the best ballad, live to tell, the power of goodbye, ill remember, you'll see, and one of my favourite the look of love.
