It's pretty and pleasant but sky 'faw' and tum 'bole' seriously affect my noggin. Didn't anyone in the recording process notice?

It's her style.

IvorHughJackolantern Mon 15-Oct-12 22:24:01

YABU. She should never record anything ever ever again.

remsby Mon 15-Oct-12 22:25:15

It may well be her style in context but it are in this.

YABU. She should never record anything ever ever again

Not even 'The pie who loved me'? grin

Faw is Scottish for fall!

notactuallyme Mon 15-Oct-12 22:28:48

I think she should rerecord it so it doesn't sound like a cr*p version of diamonds are forever....

I agree with notactuallyme - just sounds like they have tried really hard to write a bond theme tune and come up with something very bland instead.

She sings "in the club style" a la Vic Reeves. Its horrendous on this track, quite like the song otherwise.

Lol mintyy that is what I thought too

WorraLiberty Mon 15-Oct-12 22:50:34

Lol it's funny you should mention Vic Reeves cos my 9yr old DS was singing it (dramatically) today and he sounded like Vic! grin

MrsKeithRichards...Adele is English though?

also LOL @Worra

I find Adele tedious beyond words generally speaking. Not least because she sings in such an affected manner.

WitchesTit Wed 17-Oct-12 16:58:12

I thought she was singing, "when the scarf fawwwwl, apple crumbawwwl"

Crinkle77 Wed 17-Oct-12 16:59:21

Her diction is terrible and a lot of the time you can't understand what she is singing about

Sparklingbrook Wed 17-Oct-12 17:00:18

She should re record it as a totally different song. It never really gets going does it? Mintyy is right though Vic Reeves pub singer definitely.

WhenLifeGivesYouLemons Wed 17-Oct-12 17:01:26

Haha! I thought I was the only person to hear this. It's so irritating ^^

I thought that said 'bum hole'. I couldn't place the lyric.

Boomeringue Wed 17-Oct-12 17:04:19

Just found this,Adele re. Newt Gingrich.

I hadn't noticed this but it will be grating on my nerves every time I hear it now! I think she's got a great voice but agree she mangles the words terribly.

Kittenkatzen Wed 17-Oct-12 17:12:10

YANBU it's awful!

But nowhere near as bad as the cover of Wherever You Will Go by the girl who can't pronounce her "r's"....

If I could, then I would
I'll go WHEREWEVA you will go
...
WUN away with my heart
WUN away with my hope

It gets more pronounced as the song goes on too! grin

QueenStromba Wed 17-Oct-12 17:19:10

I don't mind it actually. I'm surprised that nobody has mentioned that you can clearly hear her breathing sharply at the start of every line - poor production that.

valiumredhead Wed 17-Oct-12 17:26:56

I can't stand it, it's awful. Ds and I sing along to it in a very over dramatic way clutching at our chests and change the words to 'apple crumBOLE'.... you sort of have to be there blush

NeedlesCuties Wed 17-Oct-12 17:37:29

YANBU!

I heard it on the radio and my face looked like hmm
