GUEST,keberoxu Adele cancels tour due to vocal damage-July 2017 (19) RE: Adele cancels tour due to vocal damage-July 2017 02 Oct 19


Within the past six weeks I had a really odd experience.
I was dining in a restaurant so cheap that its overhead muzak is
a Sirius XM commercial-advertisement-free radio station,
and I am used to hearing the same old new hit singles thereon.

I swear I am not making up the next part.
A song I had never before heard came on.
It was upbeat with women's voices, very playful and flirty sounding.
The Sirius XM announcer said it was something new from Adele.
Not belting, not brooding or power-ballad stuff.
Just very poppy and bouncy.
And the lead singer's voice?
SCRATCHY, HOARSE, besides that
it was soundly on-pitch and light and casual.
Didn't sound like anybody else I have heard.

And that was my only "sighting" of this musical "flying saucer UFO."
Not only have I not heard the single since,
but I can't locate any mention of it anywhere.

Was I dreaming?
No, honestly, I was chewing on a sandwich
and drinking Coca-Cola through a drinking straw.
And listening to this out-of-nowhere thing.

I wonder if somebody decided to dip a toe in the water,
metaphorically speaking,
and then yanked it right back out ...
