Adele has taken break up songs to a whole other level. You can confidently put on one of her songs and immediately have a rush of emotions you never knew even existed. Even though her music reminds people of past relationships and painful breakups, there is more to her songs than just long sobs while eating Nutella straight from the container.
In fact, Valley believes that all Penn State students can relate to her music whether or not you have ever experienced heartbreak. In honor of Adele touring for her album 25, Valley compiled a list of her song lyrics that any Penn State student can relate to.
“Hello from the other side/ I must have called a thousand times”
Anybody who has ever called in late night food after going out has experienced the emotions of finally ordering the meal you’ve been looking forward to all week.
“Let me photograph you in this light/ In case it is the last time/ That we might be exactly like we were”
To anyone who took as many pictures as possible before going out because you know for sure that your hair/makeup is not going to look like that at the end of the night — this ones for you!
“When the pain cuts you deep/ When the night keeps you from sleeping/ Just look and you will see/ That I will be your remedy”
The “remedy”= Bagel Crust and a large ice coffee after a night out.
“The sweetest devotion/ Hit me like an explosion”
For every Penn State student, the sweetest devotion is game days in Happy Valley. Nothing will ever be better than cheering for our Nittany Lions from the student section.
“If you’re gonna let me down, let me down gently”
The feeling when grades are posted on Angel.
“Send my love to your new lover/ Treat her better”
Feeling a burden being lifted off your shoulders as you sell back textbooks at the end of the semester to the Student Book Store.
“Hello from the outside/ At least I can say that I’ve tried”
When you trek all the way to Fratland just to have someone ask you, “Who do you know here?”
“I only wanted to have fun/ Learning to fly learning to run/ I let my heart decide the way/ When I was young/ Deep down I must have always known/ That this would be inevitable”
For anyone who has ever told themselves that you are staying in to study, but then ended up going out instead – This song is for you.
Adele — whether she knows it or not — has sung the song of every Penn Stater. She has unknowingly taken our daily struggles, and turned them into an impressive series of ballads for the world to hear.
