BOTB: Hello & Valentine Blog Hop
LOST AND FOUND,
VALENTINE’S EDITION BLOG HOP
Battle of the Bands!
I hope this isn't considered cheating, but this was such a last minute decision to join in the blog hop, that I found myself scrambling to come up with something.
Last year for Valentine's Day I wrote a series of posts featuring various loves that I had found and lost. If you'd like to revisit those posts and catch a glimpse of my personal life, here is where they can be found:
Love Songs: Right Here Waiting
Love Songs: Stuck On You
Love Songs: Love Is All Around
Love Songs: It Must Have Been Love
Love Songs: Light My Fire
It should be noted that each of these posts/songs are about completely different individuals. (Don't look at me that way! I was 'enjoying' my youth!)

The Song: "Hello"
Wikipedia tells us this:
"Hello" is a song by English singer and songwriter Adele. It was released on 23 October 2015 by XL Recordings as the lead single from her third studio album, 25. Adele co-wrote the song with her producer, Greg Kurstin. "Hello" is a piano ballad with soul influences, and lyrics that discuss themes of nostalgia and regret. Upon release, the song received acclaim from music critics, who compared it favorably to Adele's previous work and praised the song's lyrics and Adele's vocals.
"Hello" attained international commercial success reaching number one in 28 countries including the United Kingdom, where it became her second UK number-one single, following "Someone like You", and has the largest opening week sales in three years. In the United States, "Hello" debuted atop the Billboard Hot 100, becoming Adele's fourth number-one on the chart and breaking several records, including becoming the first song with over a million digital sales in a week.
