    Still Got The Blues For You is very interesting in that Gary Moore gets his blues soloing to happily agree.

    So with that line of thought, All The Things You Are is a blues, A Million Years Ago is Jazz, and Still Got The Blues is a bubblegum pop song.

    Agreeing with Klasaine on jazz vs pop is a HOW thing here.

    This is a great example of the how at work.

    Adele sings like a pop star, non imposing vibrato, no glissando phrasing, the dynamics tend to be loud, almost a shouting style of singing, and she has a gorgeous voice. Angelina's vibrato toggles between two a minor 3rd apart, just like Billie Holiday.

    Angelina Jordon is around 11 in this video. She IS a jazz vocal prodigy. She can sing a song like Adeles, but she is so much more expressive and passionate with her natural born blues and jazz talents. And she has a gorgeous voice.

    I wonder if preferring Angelina means you prefer jazz, and preferring Adele means you prefer pop??? Probably not lol.

    I love Adele's talents, great songwriting, but I totally prefer AJ's singing on this song.

    Gary Moore ... "blues soloing". Phrases that don't go together.

    It's not a progression that makes something a certain style.... it's the arrangement/performance that takes it there. That progression is a standard... it just starts out as a cycle of 4ths, nothing new, nothing unique.

    Just like the Pachabel Canon in D, hundreds of songs pinned on that one.
