Valentine’s Day Q&A with Hadley Elizabeth
What’s your favorite love song?
This question is so hard for me! I have so many favorite songs. My favorite would probably be “When You Say Nothing At All” by Keith Whitley. It’s special to me because when my mother met my stepdad, the first song she told me that reminded her of him was this song. I have honestly never forgotten that. He is such a big part of my life, that it just makes sense for me to follow in the same footsteps.
What’s your favorite breakup song?
This is so basic… but honestly, “Thank You, Next”, Ariana Grande. The song is thanking everyone for everything, and just about self-love. I think it’s important to understand that what’s meant to be, will be. Some people just aren’t meant to be, but you will always need to love yourself and stay true to yourself.
Do you have any favorite traditions for valentine’s day?
I haven’t had a solid boyfriend for more than a year until this year, so we will see. I do always love listening to happy music on that day. My mom has a conflicting battle with this day because it’s when her divorce was finalized, a few years ago. I think that is always in the back of my mind. So, I like to honestly keep my mom in my head and her husband now. Their love is what makes everything worth it, ya know?
Is there one of your original songs that you think everyone needs on their valentine’s day playlist or on their breakup playlist?
“You’re welcome”, is a great sassy song.. maybe a few weeks after your break up. It is fun and it makes you move as little. But another one of my originals, “Blame me”, is a personal close one, for a harder breakup. That song has a more meaningful message to me.
