There’s no denying that Adele‘s inescapable single “Hello” is a near-perfect song, so transcendent that it can bring quarreling families together in a serene, trance-like manner. I didn’t think that there was any way that this song could get better—unless a go-go bounce beat was thrown in.
And go-go stalwarts Backyard Band did just that, adding all the signature go-go elements (just listen to that nasty bass line) to Adele’s instant classic. The result is a cover that transforms “Hello” from a delicate, moving piano ballad to something that you can now cry and dance to.
