My favourite Hello song not by Adele
Adele just released her highly anticipated new song. Unfortunately, it has a very old title, Hello.
At first, I thought it was a cover of Lionel Richie's classic hit song. Unfortunately, it isn't.
It bothers me when artists release a new song with the same title as a well-known older song.
So much confusion.
In Adele's case, it's worse because her Hello and Ritchie's Hello are both piano-based ballads.
At least when the Beloved had a song called Hello, it was totally different.
And my favourite Hello song.
