On the Go: I Know You Care by Ellie Goulding

Leave a comment

Ellie Goulding. I’m so shocked that she’s still not super popular in the US. She has a way of singing that is raspy and full of so much emotion. Usually, when a person sings, they lose their accent. She manages to keep it and it adds so much more to the music.

As I was youtube stalking her, I came across this song. Absolutely beautiful – a must share.

Her album,  Halcyon has some amazing hits on it. Some of my favorites are:

  1. Anything could Happen
  2. Lights
  3. I know you Care

So, go on and enjoy this soft ballad.

On the Go: Shake It Out by the Cast of Glee

Leave a comment

Last week, I mentioned Florence + the Machine’s Shake It Off. Well, last season, the cast of Glee sang a version of the song that was really great. The scene is always very poignant and adds a whole other level to the meaning of the words as they sing them.

Of course, the original is even better but, I wanted to show you how awesome musicals are!

For the original song (Because you really should hear it twice):

On the Go: Stay by Rihanna feat. Mikky Ekko

I will be honest, I know Rihanna isn’t the best singer out there, she’s not even a particularly good singer. But, her album, Unapologetic is amazing. Say what you will but the collection of music on that album is just hit after hit. This new single of her’s: Stay ft. Mikky Ekko speaks to my soul in a way a song hasn’t since Florence + the Machine‘s Shake It Off.

Here are some of my favorites (in no particular order):

  1. Love Song (feat. Future)
  2. Diamonds
  3. Pour it up

So, to start off the 2013 season of my reviews, Happy Valentine’s Day!
