It's becoming a popular move for people to produce covers of well known songs - someone releases a number one hit, and youtube is inundated with everyone else's attempt at it. And not just performer people, needing a showreel to send off to the next casting - these are everyday people, posting in a hopeful attempt to be spotted, and become the next person releasing that chart topper which the next set of people end up covering.
The aim of the game is to change the song in such a way that it becomes noticeable. People like making slow songs fast, or fast songs slow. Switching it to acapella is a good move, and usually, if you get it right, it can sound brilliant. Scott Bradley's Postmodern Jukebox have taken things one step further, and switched popular songs into a different style - and lots of people are good at changing them to reggae beats, which we always find to be hit or miss.
But what about changing the language of the song? It's a tricky one - it might not make sense, or flow half as well as the original. But nail it, and it could be brilliant.
And that's exactly what Full Beam Productions' friend, My Kullsvik, has done with Adele's massive hit, Hello
. Check it out:
Jim and Natalie had the opportunity of working with My in 2015, whilst we were in Rhodes. She was such a dedicated and hard working person, and we love the fact that her video has become such a hit! It's been watched by over 300,000 people, and it's still going!
It always amazed us how much My understood English - there was never a moment where she couldn't join in with the team, understanding everything we said, even our jokes, and cracking her own as well! And here is proof of her language talents, as she is the first person to have translated the song into Swedish - and it looks like people are pleased she has!
Full Beam Productions are super proud of My - and we want our followers to help us out! Please share this post, and the video, as far and wide as you possibly can, and lets see if we can get the rest of the world loving this Swedish cover, as much as we do! You don't need to speak Swedish to hear how beautiful it sounds, and we think it's worth sharing.
We hope to work with My again in the future - who knows, Full Beam Productions could branch out to Sweden! And if you ever become friends with Adele, we would love an autograph!
Well done, My!
