Here's an article on the science of why Adele's Someone Like You makes so many people emotional and even cry.
It's a very cool analysis and I like the song and the performer a lot. But I think there's more to its appeal. One obvious thing is that nearly everyone has a "someone like you" in their past. And I love the beautiful melody with the soft piano. It's perfect.
Don't go by me though. I still get choked up when the F16s do a flyover at a Titans game.
