For my final choice of my week with Adele its 'Set Fire to the Rain'.
'Set Fire to the Rain' was released as a single in 2011. It was the third single to be released from her second album 21.
Personally, I think this is one of Adele's strongest singles, but it didn't make the top ten in the UK singles chart, narrowly missing out by reaching number 11. It fared much better over the pond in the us where it hit the top spot.
I love how dramatic this song is. Its much more of a pop epic ballad than her more melancholy vocals and piano type arrangement. This one packs a punch and her vocals soar over them.
The lyrics, no pun intended, really do set a fire in you "I set fire to the rain, watched it pour as I touched your face". As she says watched she really snarls it. So much power to her performance in this one, and the strings in the background are just beautiful.
So there we have it - my week with Adele is over. All that remains to be done now is to decide which of my seven choices are in the top spot overall.
