May 5 is the birthday of the queen of blue-eyed soul - Miss Adele. Her music is so versatile. Her songs have been reimagined through the eyes of an endless array of genres. We've chosen to honor her timeless talent by creating a list of the best covers of her work we could find.
10. Bella Blair: "When We Were Young"
Reggae has a way of uplifting even the saddest song, and Bella’s rich, crisp voice creates complexity throughout.
9. August Alsina: "Someone Like You"
August has arguably one of the smoothest modern male R&B voices. This is straight butter for your ears.
8. Julie St-Pierre: "Million Years Ago"
This beautiful, soft, passionate duet just makes me want to forget all my responsibilities and run off to Europe to hide in a well-lit alleyway with a handsome guitar player.
7. Leo Moracchioli: "Rolling in the Deep"
Adele goes Metal. What's not to love? Plus, that beard braid? Come on. Too good.
6. Will B. Bell & John Saga: "All I Ask"
A captivating combination of soulful vocals, sultry choreography, and stunning human movement.
5. Anthony Vincent: "Hello"
Strangely delightful. It’s as if my pre and post-adolescent dreams decided to have a baby.
4. Jun Sung Ahn: "Rolling in the Deep"
Violins sing in their own language; and Jun Sung Ahn speaks violin fluently. He covers ground even Adele's voice can't quite reach.
3. Mandiga: "Hello"
Everything about this video is sexy.
Every. Single. Thing.
2. BYB (BackYard Band): "Hello"
This go-go funky heavy hitting lo-fi percussion will have your bobbin’ your head HARD.
1. Dirty Loops: "Rolling in the Deep"
Listen. If you still haven’t heard of Dirty Loops, do yourself a favor and binge watch all their covers. I’m convinced their drummer is immortal.
