I have a strange relationship with pop music. I don’t really listen to the ‘normal’ radio stations, so I have no idea what’s in the charts at any given time.
However, I have had a soft spot for Ellie Goulding ever since I saw her perform ‘Under The Sheets’ on Jools Holland many moons ago. She must have been very young at the time. Her first album Lights is surprisingly a firm favourite. She has become quite dancy these days, but I still tend to quite like her music. I have to say that I have been listening to more dance music than I used to anyway.
Try and look for some of her acoustic performances. They are really quite good!
Anyway, here is that Jools Holland performance that made me pay attention to her.
