Been a big fan of the classical music group Aston for quite some time now – check out their awesome covers of Lady Gaga, Kylie, La Roux and Rihanna here – essentially what they do is take a popular song and add some amazing classical twists to it and ultimately produce a fantastically awesome sound!
I’m sure that everyone who owns a computer is aware of just how successful Adele’s BRIT Award performance was last month, and so it’s great that they’ve been able to re-arrange this cover so quickly. A perfect song choice in my opinion, though I’m still very much wishing that they’d do Michael Jackson’s ‘Beat It’ as a cover some time.
You may want to crank the sound up, or get some headphones, as you really do need to listen to this intently to appreciate all of the delicious harmonies and the warmth of sound in my opinion!
Just you try to tell me that the violin in place of the human voice is not hauntingly beautiful!! 😛 heh!
Of course, nobody could possibly better the original – so here you go… 😀
