Add Southern University’s Marching Band Cover Of “Hello” To The Canon Of Genius

By now, you should know all the words to Adele’s “Hello” and have figured out the best angle to point your box fan to induce swirling leaves and high drama in your living room every time you take a deep breath and hit that high note in the chorus. Your cover of “Hello” is the best cover, don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.

But I would urge you to let Southern University’s Human Jukebox marching band cover of “Hello” into your heart. Adele’s original is triumphant, soaring and chill-inducing; sub her pipes for a giant horn section and unbridled enthusiasm and you have a goddamn hit.
