Adele Introduces New Song “To Be Loved” (Not Jackie Wilson) And Sings Along in Video


Here’s Adele, singing her new “To Be Loved.” This is not the Jackie Wilson hit. But it is over 6 minutes long. I’m getting a pillow. This is called ‘shreying’ in Yiddish. This woman is wasting her voice carrying on, screaming a song with no melody, hook, or chorus. What the hell is happening here? The Adele I loved, as I wrote about yesterday, is not in these diatribe like epistles. Where is “Chasing Pavements”? “Rolling in the Deep”? We are rolling in the weep. Please, Adele, lighten up. Half the world has been divorced, some more than once!

Below the Adele song, please listen to Jackie Wilson’s “To Be Loved.”
