Ellie Goulding Appreciation Thread
 
Lights was one of my favorite albums of last year, loved her cover of Your Song. The Writer is my favorite song of hers and I saw her great performance at V festival yesterday

I absolutely love Lights (song) and really like Starry Eyed! Your Song was quite good too. Dunno whether I like her enough to get the album though...

Its a nice buy and yes I really liked the re-worked version of Lights

She is a breath of fresh air. Lights (the song) is a pop masterpiece IMO. Love both versions equally.
Can't wait to see what she comes up with next as she seems very talented and well capable of writing her own good material.

Good I found it! New album news should be coming soon as she said last year she's releasing her album in early 2012

Indeed! This Love is fantastic, The Writer is my personal favourite and yes that's a good idea for the release

I love all that album apart from home, and i think she said she was going more dark less light i'm feeling a more wish i stayed vibe with extra folk so a spring summer release would be a good idea as long as La Roux keeps away she's releasing this year too and would be Ellie 's biggest rival

Mind you Ellie VS Elly does have a nice ring :D

Oh I love it when the 2009/10 faves all come together, this year promises to be a great year for music (or at least I presume) and I guess we have to give her a chance with her dark image before we judge, in several months you may have a change of opinion ;)

And yes it does, can't wait for a magazine to use that, you'll be pressed :p

I thought Elly Jackson was scary enough in the Bulletproof video with that striking makeup so god forbid I'll be having nightmares if she goes for a darker image :eek:

I'm also hoping this album fares even better for Ellie, internationally Lights did okay but this one could really fill in a lot of the gaps, she could really breakthrough in America with a good hit single and then the album as long as it isn't too "indie"

Who was on Ab Fab? Elly or Ellie?

True the album got into the top 100, something a lot of artists who have tried to "crack" America haven't managed fair dos and she could do with going on SNL, Letterman, Ellen etc

Elly sang a duet with Jeniffer Saunders :p

And as long as she has the material and promotion she can do it if Jessie J can

It is! I honestly have no idea where in the world she is!? I know she spent the majority of last year in USA, she's done really well with all the gigs and everything

Indeed! Mainly the women: Adele, La Roux, Florence and now Ellie! So all eyes are on our crop ;)

Annoyed she didn't pick up a BRIT last year, she had best female in the bag I thought, wtf Laura Marling?

Who run the world Brit girls :D

And you will hate me but i love Both but thought it was a shock and so rewarding to give it to Laura her music is incredible more folk less pop than Ellie who would have been obvious
