Make You Feel My Love – Adele

On her debut album, 19, Adele covers the 1997 Bob Dylan song, “Make You Feel My Love”. It was released as the fifth single from the album on November 3, 2008. After Adele performed the song on Comic-Relief it re-entered the UK iTunes top 100 songs at number 42 . This is a popular cover song, as Billy Joel covered the track for his greatest hits album in 1997 and country singers Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood recorded a version for the Hope Floats soundtrack in 1998.

I like this song because, like most of the songs on Adele’s album, it focuses on her voice. The songs on her album are stripped down with little instrumentation. Adele brilliantly sings on the record (probably because most of the songs on her album are about a breakup or falling for the wrong guy) but then again, anyone can out sing Bob Dylan.

  1. I just love Adele. She's amazing. I'll be glad when she comes out with a new record. Bob Dylan is a great songwriter. The melody of this song is just perfect. One of my favorites. 🙂
