I’ve always maintained that a good song can be performed in any style and still be a good song. By that measure, Adele’s Hello may well be the best song ever written. I don’t recall any song being covered so often in such a variety of ways by so many people.
Go to Youtube and have a quick look…it’s astonishing how many people have put their own slant on this song.
I’ve included Adele’s original below along with a selection of covers that I found interesting, but I’ve barely scratched the surface.
