The song I'm posting has the opposite theme of Goodbye but I'm posting it anyway. Todd Rundgren is finally being put into the Rock 'n Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland tomorrow. He's not going to be there though, but he'll be doing a concert in another city in Ohio.

I didn't know until recently that Hello, It's Me is the first song he ever wrote. It was the B-side on a single by Nazz (a group TR was in in the late 1960s) but it still got some airplay. It was slower than the version most people know. A few years later, in 1972 or so, he released the faster version and it became a big hit.

Here are both versions. First, the older, slower version.


Next, the less old, faster version.
