Best Go-Go Cover

Backyard Band’s “Hello”
Go-go’s infatuation with contemporary pop music is nothing new: Bands have been covering pop songs for nearly as long as the homegrown music genre has been around (Go Go Lorenzo & The Davis Pinckney Project’s well-known cover of “Safety Dance” came out in 1986). But there’s something special about Backyard Band’s excellent, sensuous cover of Adele’s “Hello.” With a funky bass line and that classic pocket beat, the go-go stalwarts managed to turn a sappy piano ballad into a dancehall classic.
