Click to listen to Adele's 'Live at Royal Albert Hall'

Adele has had a phenomenal year. Her second album 21 has been the biggest-selling record of 2011, and her hits "Someone Like You" and "Rolling in the Deep" have made her a cross-generational superstar. Though the British singer has had the sort of year most artists can only dream of, there has been a downside, as her struggle with recurring hemorrhaging of her vocal cords has forced her to cancel dozens of concerts and keep out of the public eye until she has fully recovered. In the meantime, fans can enjoy her new concert album Live at the Royal Albert Hall, which includes selections from both of her albums performed at the legendary venue in London earlier this year. You buy the DVD/CD set from Amazon tomorrow, and stream the album in full today.

“Road to Nowhere”

Talking Heads | 1985

A cappella harmonies give way to an a fuller arrangement blending pop and electro-disco on "Road to Nowhere," but the theme remains constant: We're on an eternal journey to an undefined destination. The song vaulted back into the news a quarter century after it was a hit when Gov. Charlie Crist used it in his unsuccessful 2010 campaign for the U.S. Senate in Florida. "It's this little ditty about how there's no order and no plan and no scheme to life and death and it doesn't mean anything, but it's all right," Byrne said with a chuckle.
