Birthday wishes go out today to Adele, the Londoner whose blue-eyed soul has earned her a legion of fans both in the UK and around the world, thanks to singles like this one, Chasing Pavements, which originally appeared on her 2008 debut album 19. She has since performed the song on Friday Night with Jonathan Ross and Saturday Night Live; as well, it's has been used numerous times on Hollyoaks.
The song was inspired by a spat with a boyfriend, after which she went chasing after him in an empty street; nonetheless, the Urban Dictionary has a considerably more grotesque definition of a similarly fruitless activity that got the song banned from many American radio stations.
