Hello, it's Selena Gomez

Unless you were living under a rock without any access to the radio or Internet in October 2015, you've definitely heard Adele's record-smashing megahit, "Hello." The track made an impact on countless people, including—as it newly turns out—Gomez.  In an interview for Capital FM, the "Rare" songstress was tasked with sharing a song she wishes she had written. 

"I would have wanted to do either 'Send My Love (To Your New Lover)' or 'Hello,'" the songstress answered, referencing another track on the British star's third studio album, 25.

However, Gomez clarified, "Will never touch an Adele song in my life. I would never try to sing it."

Still, like the rest of us, she wishes she had been part of that musical magic. "I would say those were two that I was like, 'Man, I love that so much and I wish I had written something like that.'"

While she's an obvious music fan, there was one prompt that she didn't have an answer for: "A song that reminds you of being in love." 

"I don't know if I have one," the "Lose You to Love Me" star said after posing to think. "Yeah, I don't think I have one."

However, Gomez did know the first song she ever loved—Lee Ann Womack's "I Hope You Dance."

"Me and my nana used to love it, so it makes me think of home," the star explained. "It's a sweet song. I cry every time."
