So, without further ado, here are our picks for the 5 best songs by Adele.

“Rolling In the Deep”

Described by Adele herself as a “dark blues-y gospel disco tune,” this track off her second album, 21, is one of her best-known. And for good reason, too, as the song is beautifully melancholic and perfectly highlights the singer’s impressive vocal range.

“Chasing Pavements”

This Grammy-nominated track pretty much put Adele on the map and set her up to be a force to be reckoned with. The soul-inspired pop track is catchy and will make you want to belt it out no matter where you are!

“Set Fire to the Rain”

Debuting at number one on the Billboard Top 100, “Set Fire to the Rain” was the third single off Adele’s sophomore album and was talked about by both fans and critics alike with some calling it too dramatic while most praised it for Adele’s lyrics and her gorgeous vocals.


The lead single from Bond film, Skyfall, was co-written by Adele herself and she only agreed to do the song after reading the film’s script. She tried to capture the moody, sultry atmosphere of the Bond films—and few with disagree when we say that she was beyond successful!


Adele’s first single from her third studio album, 25, this piano ballad highlights Adele’s impressive talents not only as a singer but as an admirable songwriter as well. Even though Rita Ora did a spectacular cover of the song, nothing really beats the original in this case.
