Adele’s first album in four years has finally been released! In honor of this epic occasion, we’ve rounded up the 9 times Adele’s made you cry your eyes out because of her heartbreaking and beautiful songs.
Adele is back, and we are so blessed. The soulful singer, 27, released her new album, 25, on Nov. 20, and it may be her best one yet! We all know Adele has a knack for making us cry like little babies, so we’ve narrowed down the top 9 times Adele’s brought on all the tears.
Let’s start with the song brought us back to life. Adele released “Hello” in Oct. 2015, and we didn’t know what living was like until we heard this song. The song is devastating and beautiful. Adele’s voice is just a gift we are not worthy of.
2. ‘Someone Like You’
If you don’t cry when listening to “Someone Like You,” you’re not a real human. It’s the quintessential breakup song that you listen to whenever you’re done with an ex forever. Preach, Adele, preach!
3. ‘Make You Feel My Love’
Adele’s rendition of Bob Dylan’s classic is just gut-wrenching. The lyrics are devastating — there’s always going to be that person in your life that you’ll do anything for and wish they knew how deeply they’re loved. Also, Adele’s voice will make you cry like a little baby.
4. ‘Hometown Glory’
Unlike many of Adele’s songs, this one isn’t a love song. It’s about going back to where you came from. No matter how far you stray, you can never forget the places you left behind.
5. ‘Turning Tables’
This is one emotional song that’s perfect for anyone in the world who knows what it’s like to love someone so much and get hurt by them. You may be crying tears of emotion at the beginning, but you’ll be crying tears of joy by the end because you don’t always need someone to make you happy.
6. ‘Chasing Pavements’
Ugh, this one tugs at the heartstrings. It’s about being in love with someone who doesn’t love you back. Everyone’s had that happen. Basically, “Chasing Pavements” will rip out your heart
7. ‘Take It All’
Adele knows our struggle. She pens a heartfelt song about falling in love with someone who doesn’t realize how good they have it. With this song, you can’t help yourself. You cry an ocean of tears with no shame at all.
8. ‘Don’t You Remember’
We all know the feeling. Breaking up with someone is hard, but what’s worse is when you’re still in love with the person, even though it’s over. Have fun not bawling your eyes out over this song.
9. ‘Hiding My Heart’
This is actually a Brandi Carlile cover, and Adele sings the hell out of it. Everyone understands meeting someone during a rough time and wishing you could open your heart up to them completely. Get ready. Adele will break your heart in half with this sad, sad song.
