Adele’s ‘Hello’ gets raging marching band twist; Lionel Richie says he and Adele will collaborate

Not only has Adele broken records with the release of her “25” album, but there seems to be no end to the versatility of her single, “Hello.”

The forlorn ballad can be used for laughs (think SNL, Rob Riggle, Miss Piggy) and for fun (Jimmy Fallon and The Roots).

But have you thought of the lyric “hello from the other side” as a peel-the-paint-off-the-wall horn line?

Well, The Human Jukebox marching band of Southern University and A&M College in Louisiana did. And they (accompanied by The Fabulous Dancing Dolls) killed it.

At one point recently, you could find the “Captain America: Civil War” trailer set to the song, but that video’s been pulled down. Huffington Post called it the “The Civil War Bromance Version.”

“Hello” can also be turned into an actual conversation, as Ellen DeGeneres so deftly pulled off.

And of course, it has also been mashed up with Lionel Richie’s “Hello.” That video has more than 6.6 million views, but the more exciting news is that Richie tells E! News that the two could possibly pair up soon.

“We are going to be doing something together — that’s already almost in the works ... I can almost say that we are talking, but right now she has a mission,” Lionel said.

Finally, you can listen to Adele’s entire album covered by Sam Tsui in 4 minutes.
