But discover it you do. And, oh man, when you finally hear Adele calling out from the other side, it strikes your soul the same way it struck the souls of the other 7 billion people on the planet. Seriously, how have you not heard this? No matter. Here's what happens when you finally get on board with the hottest song of the year.
