Video: "Someone Like You" by Adele

Posted by Andrew Matson

The song of the year now has a simple, perfect video: Adele in Paris, singing and strolling, apparently processing the breakup detailed in the song's lyrics.

The look on her face during the second time through the "I wish nothing but the best for you" line is the best, just gutting, a real achievement how she plays it cold but not sarcastic. I think in times of emotional devastation, everyone wants stand on a bridge over the Seine on a cold day, squinting into the wind, sorting it out.
