Such a simple concept for a video but it's done so beautifully, with the sweeping cameras and the close ups of the collection of items that makes up the history of her life. Just Adele pouring her heart out. Nothing but the music. Other artists could take a cue from her. *coughLadyGaga* Plus, I really connect to the lyrics. Makes me cry every time.
Ray Charles. "Affluence separates people. Poverty knits 'em together. You got some sugar and I don't; I borrow some of yours. Next month you might not have any flour; well, I'll give you some of mine."
