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.
All along, all I’ve really wanted to be is a writer. So now I tell people that’s what I am, even though I haven’t earned a dime being a writer.
That being said, I’ll confess that once a day, every day, I wish I was still a musician. That was the one time in my life when I was cool.
