A spokesman for the British singer said Adele did not give her permission to have her music played during any political campaigning.

DAVID GREENE, HOST:

Good morning. I'm David Greene. Here's what Donald Trump might be thinking this morning.

(SOUNDBITE OF SONG, "ROLLING IN THE DEEP")

ADELE: (Singing) We could have had it all.

GREENE: What Trump had in Iowa was a second-place finish. Now during the campaign here, Trump used Adele's songs "Skyfall" and "Rolling In The Deep" at rallies, but Adele spokesperson told Britain's Independent newspaper that Trump doesn't have permission to use those songs. Maybe Trump will respond, never mind, I'll find someone like you. It's MORNING EDITION.
