Comments about this song


"Someone Like You" was the second single released from her multi-platinum album "21". It managed to reach #1 on the Hot 100 chart in the United States back in 2011. "Someone Like You" was nominated for and won the Grammy Award for Best Pop Solo Performance at the 54th Grammy Awards, which was held on 12 February 2012.

Most of 21's lyrics refer to Adele working through the ending of a relationship including this song. She recalled to The Daily Telegraph; "When I did 'Someone Like You' live on Jools Holland, I got so upset wondering and hoping and wishing that my ex would be watching it, I went back to my dressing room and sobbed. Making a record is like standing in the middle of Trafalgar Square naked, you let everyone see your good bits and bad bits. I don't know what possesses me to do that, but I'm not good at anything else."

'Someone Like You' is the UK's biggest-selling single of the year so far, notching up over one million unit sales here alone. The soulful ballad, which was the follow-up to No.2 hit '<a title="Adele – Rolling in the Deep" href="" class="bbcode_track">Rolling in the Deep</a>', sped to the top of the charts after a beautiful performance at the Brit Awards in February 2011.
