Aretha Franklin covers “Rolling in the Deep” – Adele

I’ve seen this pop up all day long and avoided it, just because when I played it out in my head…it was a BAD idea. But it just KEPT. POPPING. UP. So I caved.

Before I give my thoughts…here…

I went through a mix of emotions while listening to this.

From the very beginning, I was like WHOA! This could actually work! Like, if I don’t think of it as an Adele song but as an Aretha song….this works!

But then at the :30 mark I was like, “uh oh…”

And then I literally laughed out loud at the 1:03 mark (that “deeeEEEEEp” was too much for me to handle)…

By the 1:54 mark my thought was, “dis tew much”….

BUUUUT then the 2:45 mark, I was like YASSS!! I’m sorry. I’m here for this mashup. I liked it.

My overall assessment is that I like it. I really do. It’s not as horrible as I thought it would be, if thought about as an Aretha Franklin song. And again, I REALLY like the mashup!

BUUUUUT no. It doesn’t compare to the original. And just in case you’ve been under a rock, here you go!

What do you guys think?
