Welcome To… Ellie Goulding: 25 Songs You Need In Your Pop Collection

We’ve all heard of Ellie Goulding. You’ve certainly heard her breakthrough hit, “Lights,” and probably songs like “Burn,” “I Need Your Love,” and “Love Me Like You Do.” But what else do you know about this talented songstress from the suburbs of England? Ellie Goulding has been playing music since she was young, and her varied influences have helped her develop a unique style. Her music blends folk with electronic music, combining synthpop and folktronica with indie pop. Ellie also boasts a distinctive, recognizable voice. At times her voice reaches high, clear chirps, at other times turning raspy and raw.
