Taking home the bronze is "Someone Like You," which will go down in history as a classic and be remembered in the next century. It's simply genius in every way that music can possibly be genius. Seven #1s fall with the reveal here, with a MASSIVE amount of #1s in the Top 2!!!
And there you have it! To likely nobody's surprise, "Rolling in the Deep" takes the crown and is named the best track from 21!!! However, it was not the landslide victory some were predicting in the beginning--"Set Fire to the Rain" was no slouch, proving to be such competition during the submission process that it only lost to RITD by FIVE points!!! Both songs are incredible, so I'm perfectly fine with this outcome, even if it is in the reverse order of my rankings.
Thanks for following along, y'all! We're coming up on 30's release day and 25's anniversary, but we're also starting to come up on Thanksgiving and the holiday rush, not to mention the year-end craziness that will take up December and January here on Pulse, and I don't want to cram another album in while we're trying to balance all of that. I'll return as soon into 2022 as I can with the 25 rankdown!!!! Stay tuned!!
Welp, I missed this one and just ran across the reveal. Had I participated, my top 3: 1. Turning Tables 2. One and Only 3. Someone Like You
"'Vision Of Love', when I first heard that song, I knew it, my mind was made up, I had to be a singer." - Beyonce "When I discovered Mariah Carey and 'Vision of Love,' that was a breath of fresh air. And I adored her from that moment on and idolized her." - Christina Aguilera "I think ['Vision Of Love'] was a vision of the future world of American Idol." - Rich Juzwiak, Slant
It’s been FAR too long since we’ve visited the world of Adele’s catalog, and I’m sorry this didn’t come sooner, but life happened. The bright side is that I’m here now, better than ever, ready to dive us into 25, one of the best selling records of all time.
The album was an instant blockbuster, selling over 3 million copies in the US alone, in its first week alone…and that’s all pure sales, as Adele didn’t release the album to streaming services right away. That means over 3 million Americans got off their asses, drove to the stores and bought this album. Despite being released on November 20, the record was the best seller worldwide of 2015, selling over 17 million copies. There haven’t been sales like this since, even from her. It’s since gone on to become her second Diamond certified album, and won her five awards total at the 2017 Grammy Awards, including the big one—Album of the Year.
