Lists: Hello, it’s me… From the Other Side


“I’ve said goodbye so many times
I’m not afraid of letting go
I’ve said goodbye so many times
I guess I’m more scared of hello”
-Amy Loftus

You say goodbye and I say hello: in 1967, the Beatles released one of the most iconic songs in their history.

The word hello has become a recurring presence in pop music since then. In its simplicity, hello conveys a feeling of familiarity, the developing of a relationship, the thrill for a new beginning or the quest for pleasant memories of a past romance. What can be more relatable than that?

Whether it represents a love story grown cold, whether it suggests the resolution of conflict through dialogue, whether it narrates the beginning of a special bond, this little word is powerful and a source of inspiration for songwriters.

Here’s a list of songs you may or may not heard of with “hello” in them that isn’t Lionel Richie’s or Adele’s and the classics we already know.
