    Since Adele keeps winning Grammy Awards, I’m curious which of her songs harpists are including in their gig repertoires. Thanks!

    Set Fire to the Rain also works well on harp.

    I’ve arranged Rolling in the Deep for flute, cello and harp.

    I hope that somebody has requested “Someone Like You” at a wedding. “Do you take so and so as a reasonable substitute for your now-married ex?” Oh, l’amore, l’amore.

    But all the wedding requests I get anymore are inappropriate, Kreig. Last Saturday for instance, for the prelude they wanted:

    Bittersweet Symphony (you’re a slave to money, then you die)

    Under the Bridge (my sweetie left me, I went under the bridge to shoot up)

    With or Without You (I can’t live, with or without you)

    Hallelujah (All I ever learned from love is how to shoot at someone who outdrew you)

    and so on. Of course, in fairness, the tragic love songs (Romeo and Juliet, Titanic, etc) have always been more popular, but everything now that I get asked for is pretty harsh. Nobody ever asks for Marry Me by Train, for instance, or Love Story by Taylor Swift. They do occasionally ask for Marry You by Bruno Mars (I’m looking for something dumb to do, Hey Babe, I think I want to marry you).

    I SO love Adele, but think an album about a bitter breakup is TERRIBLE music for a wedding. Someone Like You is an awful wedding choice, IMO.

    Does anyone have a harp (lever) arrangement of “To Make You Feel My Love”? Adele sings it but I believe Bob Dylan wrote it. A pretty song….I’d love to know it.
