When Adele was 15 years old, she was totally inspired listening to legends like Ella Fitzgerald. The star revealed to The Telegraph (via CNN), "Chart music was all I ever knew, so when I listened to the Ettas and the Ellas, it sounds so cheesy, but it was like an awakening. I was like, oh, right, some people have proper longevity and are legends. I was so inspired that as a 15-year-old I was listening to music that had been made in the Forties. The idea that people might look back to my music in 50 years' time was a real spur to doing this." When executives discovered her music posted on MySpace in 2006, she got a record deal—and a star was born.

Adele's lyrics are inspirational, relatable, and they are great to read over and over again. In fact, "Rumour Has It" they may be perfect for "Someone Like You" to post along with your favorite pics on social media.
