Riff: Adele – “Rolling in the Deep”

Dec 27, 2012

See how I leave with every piece of you/Don’t underestimate the things that I will do

from Rolling in the Deep lyrics by Adele

Adele’s got a set of pipes. Here, she uses them to power through her roots-revival/American Blues-tinged relationship revenge track. When she bellows her threats, you can’t help but be scared. Take note, Katy Perry – this is how you haunt an ex.
