I may be drawn and quartered for saying this, but I really don't like Adele's singing. Can't put my finger on it. Just a gut reaction.

re: #1 wheat-dogghazi

I actually am bothered by the fact that when she speaks she sounds like a 19th cockney chimney sweeper but sings like a 60s era black woman. What's up with that?

Destro,

And right wing idiots think that Obama could have been born in Kenya and somehow faked his birth certificate and ran for President, and gotten elected, even through he wouldn't qualify, and have gotten away with it.

Think? Right wing idiots KNOW Obama was born in Kenya, Either that or this is how they get to say the N word in polite company and remind their base that Obama is black.

Lots of singers sing differently than they speak, though in some cases that's the autotune at work.

Why Do British Singers Sound American, Like Adele on "Skyfall"?

She's had professional training. Probably has the ability to do a lot of accents when singing.

IIRC, singing and talking are carried out by two different parts of the brain. That's why stroke patients who cannot talk can often sing.

I find it all very interesting . .

Question, do we know how long this not filing of birth certificates has been going on in England and other countries? Do we have any idea how many potential foreign Manchurian no birth certificate on file people might be growing up here, waiting their turn to be candidates? CRISIS! /

Yep, and people who stutter can usually sing without problems.
