The sound is gloriously modern soul/jazz. What a voice, with real emotion driving it and emotive lyrics. I also loved the string instrument arrangement; it doesn't always work so well in such a commercial song, or should I say, songs with these instruments in them don't always get such commercial success, but anything less for this song would be a travesty. This song is absolutely beautiful and one you'll recognise the minute you hear it. An instant classic.
This is an excellant song and Adele sings it so well and shes even excellant live too (Jonathan Ross show).
A definate star in 2008 so watch out for Adele.
Early 2008 - you couldn't go anywhere without hearing this song. It was all over the radio and provided a fantastic showcase for Adele and her amazing voice. With insightful lyrics coupled with a brilliant video, Chasing Pavements isn't just a great pop song, but one that easily stands out from the crowd as something special.
The production quality is great, the string section in particular on the chorus is stunning as Adele sings 'would it be a waste even if i knew my place?'. The song is just so uplifting and classy, it'd perfect to brighten up a morning and along with previous single Hometown Glory serves as a perfect introduction to her album.
You also get the stripped back B-side - a cover of Sam Cooke's 'That's It, I Quit, I'm Moving On' - on here.
This song, while the lyrics sound contemporary, the sound is like a step back in time to when the singer's voice mattered at much as the appearance. None of "All style, no substance" that shows like X-factor promote.
Adele is a singer who makes you feel good about liking music.
