While Adele's new track 'Hello' is creating crazy levels of excitement among fans, many have taken to Twitter to comment on the similarity of the opening to Lionel Richie's 'Hello'.

Some initially thought she had covered Richie's 1984 classic and demands have been made for a mash-up (which we'll bring you in due course).

Speaking to Nick Grimshaw on his Radio 1 show this morning Adele said, "Me and Lionel, we definitely have got to do something. Lionel, I'm putting it out there."

Here's a sample of reaction Twitter and scroll down for a comparison between Adele and Lionel's Hellos!
