"Hello" is a remix single by The Beloved."Hello" appears on the "Happiness" album. By peaking at #19 in the UK, on 5 January 1990, it was, at the time, their highest-charting single, a record it held for almost exactly 3 years, until "Sweet Harmony," the first single taken from the "Conscience" album, reached Number 8, on 18 January 1993, this way becoming the band's new highest-charting single, a record it still holds.

At least three additional remixes were exclusive to other formats: "Hello (Boys & Girls)" and "Hello (Uncle Albert)" appeared on the 12-inch vinyl version, and "Hello (Dolly)" appeared on both the cassette and 7-inch versions. In addition, a Razormaid! remix of the song appeared on the "Razormaid! Anniversary 9.0" compilation album. As for "Hello (What's All This Then?)" and "Hello (Honky Tonk)," two of the five remixes of the main title on the CD single release, they would both later resurface on the following "Blissed Out" remix album, the sister release to "Happiness", the second remix only featuring on the CD and MC editions of the work, but not on the vinyl LP, which only contained the first. The MC edition only of "Blissed Out" also included "Paradise (My Darling, My Angel)," representing then previously unreleased sixth track on the "Hello" CD single.

As well as the names of some the band members' friends, the song mentions a number of famous people (some of them fictional), chosen to loosely fit a "saints and sinners" theme.

In alphabetical order, the people listed in the song are: Jeffrey Archer (politician and novelist), Fred Astaire, Bobby Ball (comedian), Charlie Brown, Tommy Cannon (comedian), Billy Corkhill (soap opera character), Leslie Crowther (TV presenter), Freddy Krueger (Elm Street bad guy), Paris Grey (singer), Brian Hayes (broadcaster), Vince Hilaire (footballer), Barry Humphries, The LSO, Kym Mazelle (singer), Mork and Mindy, Little Nell, Charlie Parker, Andre Previn, Little Richard, Salman Rushdie, Jean Paul Sartre, The Supremes ("Mary Wilson, Di and Flo"), William Tell, Sir Bufton Tufton, Desmond Tutu, Willy Wonka, Zippy and Bungle (TV characters). There are also references to "Peter" and "Paul", presumably the Christian apostles Saint Peter and Saint Paul.

Kym Mazelle, who's mentioned in the song, actually sings backing vocals on it.
