Ellie Goulding demonstrates her versatility with this sweet, soft song. Gone are the banging drums and effects. In comes simplicity, with a simple piano and strings arrangement and Goulding's haunting voice. A treasure!
somehow didn't hear this song until CIN Rocks concert & it was hauntingly familiar? Discovered it was a cover of an old Waterboys song & its a wonderful version. Ellie's voice is crystal clear & its a beautiful simple song, I love it!
I first heard this song when watching Children in Need. I liked it immediately. I knew of Ellie Goulding, but had never previously heard her perform. My music tastes are mainly classical and folk, but I lIke to listen to any music, which is well written and performed. This certainly fits the bill in both respects and I now intend to try more of her recordings in future. Her voice has a fragile quality, which is well suited to the song. It will be interesting to discover how she handles songs, which are perhaps less naturally suited to her voice.
My wife drew my attention to this pleasant track and asked my opinion. It is a sound melody and the first 16 bars are the hook for this song. Production is thoughtful and fairly sparse; sometimes less is more and that is true in this case. Ellie Goulding's voice is quirky and easy to listen to, though it might be quite interesting to hear what she can do with a really big production in which she has to sing flat out. If this song is from an album, I don't think I would buy all the tracks.
