Ellie Goulding is fan-freakin’-tastic!
I saw her in concert back in October 2012 with Ms. Anne. Here’s a pic of Ellie live >>>
Her name may or may not sound familiar to you, since it is repeatedly mispronounced on radios. It is Ellie GOLDing, NOT GHOUL-ding. How can you remember that? She’s fantastic and shines like GOLD! 😀
Her single Lights has only been playing on Canadian radios this year, 2012. However, the single was released and was popular over in Britain back in 2010!!! We are very much behind here, because she’s just come out with a second album and has plenty of singles that we don’t hear on local airwaves. Ellie also played for the Queen, so that’s pretty impressive!
Her music is something I enjoy very much. She uses so many different sounds in each song, mostly generated by various synthesizers I’m sure. Drums, pianos, and harps are often prominent as well!
Here’s a video for her single Figure 8. I thoroughly enjoy the song; hope you guys do too!
This next clip unfortunately doesn’t have a music video, but the song itself is powerful enough on its own. I just love the drums in this song. Dedicate this song to a douche-bag in your life that you’ve moved on from 🙂
I hope this encourages you to check out some of her other songs on iTunes 😀 Her first album on iTunes has been reloaded and renamed Bright Lights. Her latest album is called Halcyon, but don’t ask me how to pronounce that haha!
