Whenever I listen to this:

MP3: Adele - Hometown Glory (Removed As Per Label Request)

I can't help but think of this:

MP3: Sia - Breathe Me DOWNLOAD

On behalf of XL Recordings and Adele, we would kindly ask you not to post copies of "Hometown Glory" on your site (or any album / new versions of other tracks from Adele's forthcoming album - "19", release date 28th Jan 08). Regrettably, should you do so DMCA notifications shall be forwarded to your site's ISP and take-down action shall follow (and, in extreme / persistent cases, site closure) : naturally, however, we hope that this shall not prove to be necessary.

On behalf of both Adele and XL, we do appreciate that - of course - you are a fan of / are promoting Adele but, by the same token, you must also appreciate that, by posting pirate copies of tracks from the album pre-release (or linking to pirate copies), you are potentially causing considerable inconvenience and we are sure that you would not want to be personally responsible (or liable) for all of the resulting damage and disruption.

Thank you for respecting the artist's and label's wishes and, if you want good quality, non-pirated tracks, earlier versions of songs from "19" and the video version of "Chasing Pavements" are available for you to link to on Adele's MySpace page (as, we are glad to see, you are also doing -

Whilst writing, we'd add that XL and Adele are not at all against free music but, at the end of the day, it should be (and is) the artist's decision as to whether or not she effectively allows the unauthorised distribution of her album on-line before its release - as it's HER MUSIC !! Thank you, again, for respecting her wishes.

With Thanks & New Year's Greetings,

YES. They absolutely sound identical to me. I was wondering if anyone else had noticed.

I just heard Adele's song for the first time, and I immediately thought about Sia's song.

I'm affraid this was done on purpose by people lacking creativity...

It makes me think of "tears dry on their own" by Amy Winehouse which is a pure copy of "ain't no mountain high enough" from Marvin Gaye...
