Got You Covered: Rolling In The Deep


This weekend's Cover Song is a nice seque between Valentines Day, and our theme for the coming week.

Rolling in The Deep is a song written by Adele and Paul Epworth, and was released in November 2010. It is a dark bluesy gospel disco tune.

The song was written in a single afternoon following Adele's breakup with her boyfriend. It was her reaction to being told that her life was going to be boring and lonely and rubbish.

We'll talk more about Adele in a future post.

Let's give Adele's version a listen:

Rolling in The Deep has been covered by quite a few different artists.


Linkin Park, an alternative band that leans more toward nu-metal and rap metal is one such band that has covered the song.

Here is their version:

Side Note: I did find another cover, but it's not for the faint of heart. Most definitely NSFW. But if you're curiosity is killing you - search YouTube for Lil Wayne's version of the song.

Alright, so now the time is here. Tell me, who sang it best?
