Adele’s “Rolling in the Deep” Wins BMI’s Song of the Year

As soon as Adele’s soulful voice sings “We could have had it all/Rolling in the deep/You had my heart inside your hand/And you played it to the beat” and we’ve got all our hearts beating along with the rhythm to the song. That’s what happens whenever the songstress opens her mouth. Sure, there’s heartbreak and mourning, but the stories are told with such urgency and importance (not to mention that unyielding voice) that you just want to roll in the deep over and over again. And apparently we’re not the only ones who think so. Last night, Adele was honored at the annual BMI London Awards. “Rolling in the Deep,” which was written by Adele and Paul Epworth, won the Robert S. Musel Award for Song of the Year. If you haven’t heard this song, then you must’ve been living under a rock in the middle of the ocean. Last year the song received more performances on U.S. radio and television than any other BMI song. It’s gotten 2 million performances, which is pretty impressive, seeing that that comes out to the song being performed back to back for over 12 consecutive years. Then of course, the song also won Grammys for Record and Song of the Year. If you haven’t checked out “Rolling in the Deep,” then get out from under that rock and listen to it below.
