Annotationen

Erster Song in der Geschichte, der über eine Million Downloads in der ersten Woche erreichte. Mit Hello meldete sich Adele nach drei Jahren zurück: «Hello, it's me.». Das Lied handelt von einer alten Liebe, Jahre nach der Trennung. Die Akteurin im Song möchte den Verflossenen anrufen, der in einem anderen Teil der Welt wohnt («the other side»). Die Verbindung bricht ab. Das Video zeigt Adele irgendwo in der Pampas, an einem Ort, an dem die Erinnerungen hochkommen und der ein Funkloch ist. Der laute Ruf mit intensiver Stimme ändert nichts daran, dass die Erzählerin des Songs mit ihren Gefühlen allein bleibt.
Hello gewann im Februar 2017 die Grammys in den Kategorien «record of the year» und «song of the year».

Lyrics

[Verse 1] Hello, it's me I was wondering if after all these years You'd like to meet, to go over everything They say that time's supposed to heal ya But I ain't done much healing Hello, can you hear me? I'm in California dreaming about who we used to be When we were younger and free I've forgotten how it felt before the world fell at our feet There's such a difference between us And a million miles [Chorus] Hello from the other side I must've called a thousand times to tell you I'm sorry, for everything that I've done But when I call you never seem to be home Hello from the outside At least I can say that I've tried to tell you I'm sorry, for breaking your heart But it don't matter, it clearly doesn't tear you apart anymore [Verse 2] Hello, how are you? It's so typical of me to talk about myself I'm sorry, I hope that you're well Did you ever make it out of that town Where nothing ever happened? It's no secret That the both of us are running out of time [Chorus] Hello from the other side I must've called a thousand times to tell you I'm sorry, for everything that I've done But when I call you never seem to be home Hello from the outside At least I can say that I've tried to tell you I'm sorry, for breaking your heart But it don't matter, it clearly doesn't tear you apart anymore [Bridge] Ooooohh, anymore Ooooohh, anymore Ooooohh, anymore Anymore [Chorus] Hello from the other side I must've called a thousand times to tell you I'm sorry, for everything that I've done But when I call you never seem to be home Hello from the outside At least I can say that I've tried to tell you I'm sorry, for breaking your heart But it don't matter, it clearly doesn't tear you apart anymore
