Now that I am back from my work trip, I am getting a handful of threads up tonight, which will carry on until the end of next week.

"Tune or No Tune" is a simple, weekly thread hosted by the Band of the Red Hand Social Group. All you need to do is decide whether the song I have chosen is a TUNE (i.e. you love it) or a NO TUNE (i.e. you hate it). Quite simple, really!

During January, the theme was to look back at songs from the previous year, as well as a look at artists who are expected to hit the big time in 2012. There were a couple of "It's A Knockout" threads covering these, and it is now time to put the winners from these threads up to vote in "Tune or No Tune". The first winner is from the "It's A Knockout" thread for "2011 Top Singles".

And the winner of that thread was Adele, with her single Someone Like You. This was the UK's top selling single of 2011, shifting some 1,242,000 copies. The song achieved numerous number 1s across the world, cementing Adele's position as one of the top artists in the music industry at the moment. The song has been nominated for the Grammy Award for Best Pop Solo Performance at the forthcoming Grammy Awards.

The song was written by Adele and Dan Wilson for her second studio album 21. The pop ballad was inspired by a broken relationship of hers, and lyrically it speaks of how she came to terms with it. The song is only accompanied by a piano, which only enhances its power and the rather sombre feel of the song.

It is a very simple song, but it is very moody and powerful. The song was well received by music critics because of its simplisticity. As a result, I give Someone Like You by Adele the vote of TUNE.

For those of you who haven't heard the piece, here is a link to YouTube.

The poll closes in a week's time, which is Monday 20th February 2012. So make sure you vote now before the time for the latest "Tune or No Tune" poll finishes!

Also, if you want to suggest a tune for "Tune or No Tune", do not hesitate to drop me a PM.

The piano arrangement is boring, but the vocal performance is tops. So, I say,

TUNE

P.S. Did you see Adele's performance at the Grammys yesterday? Great show!
