It’s cold and rainy here.  There’s no song more perfect for this mood than “Make You Feel My Love.”  Originally by Bob Dylan, it was featured in the film Hope Floats (sung by Garth Brooks), and as an outro to the film as well (sung by Tricia Yearwood).

What I love about this song is the rhyme scheme and lyrics.  The rhyme scheme is: AAAB/AAAB/ABAB/AAAB/ABAB/AAAB

I’m posting all the lyrics in, so you can see how great they are:

When the rain is blowing in your face
And the whole world is on your case
I could offer you a warm embrace
To make you feel my love

When the evening shadows and the stars appear
And there is no – one there to dry your tears
I could hold you for a million years
To make you feel my love

I know you haven’t made your mind up yet
But I would never do you wrong
I’ve known it from the moment that we met
No doubt in my mind where you belong

I’d go hungry I’d go black and blue
I’d go crawling down the avenue
Know there’s nothing that I wouldn’t do
To make you feel my love

The storms are raging on the rolling sea
And on the highway of regret
The winds of change are blowing wild and free
You ain’t seen nothing like me yet

I could make you happy make your dreams come true
Nothing that I wouldn’t do
Go to the ends of the Earth for you
To make you feel my love

I also love the violin solo in this particular version.  And of course, I don’t mind country music, but I like Adele’s treatment of the song better than Tricia Yearwood’s or Garth Brooks.    Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to go listen to more Adele and cry.
