Ellie Goulding

Posted in: Music

I was first introduced Ellie Goulding while searching the UK Top 100 list – her cover of Elton John’s famous song, Your Song, was towards the top. I immediately downloaded the song after watching the video on youTube (included below)…I don’t usually like covers, as it’s always hard to beat the original! I don’t claim to think Ellie beat Elton, but she added a whole new dimension to the song.

A couple of weeks after I discovered her, she appeared on Saturday Night Live performing Your Song and Lights (also included below). I had to get the entire album – her voice, her songs, the beats…very original and unique.

I rarely find an album where I actually enjoy every single song…but with Ellie Goulding’s album Bright Lights, I’ve found one…with so many of the songs, you can either dance your heart out or cry your eyes out. Maybe even both! Have a listen to the songs below…then go buy the whole album – you won’t regret it!

Enjoy the songs below:

 

Your Song

“I hope you don’t mind that I put down in words
How wonderful life is now you’re in the world”

 

Under The Sheets 

“In our house made of paper…”

 

Lights

 

“So I tell myself that I’ll be strong…”

 

Human

 

“I am so scared of what will kill me in the end for I am not prepared; I hope I will get the chance to be someone.”

 

The Writer

 

“Why don’t you be the artist and make me out of clay?”

Enjoy! Have a great week!

 

This will probably be my last post until my exams are over at the end of the month…Cross your fingers and wish me luck! :D
