Ellie Goulding is definitely, without an effing doubt, one of the best newcomers of 2010 – if not the best. I mean, it's hard not to fall in love with her. Her number-one debut album Lights is packed with songs that mostly chronicles heartbreak in quite a personal, heartfelt manner. They appear to have that extra magical element to them, all wrapped up by Goulding's voice (sweet as candyflosses and pink lemonades on a warm summer afternoon), soft synths and folky guitars. I will certainly never forget finding out such gems as Under the Sheets and the oh so adored demo version of Wish I Stayed last year. With Bright Lights, Goulding expands her catalogue with equally epic songs, including a wintry cover version of Elton John's classic Your Song, which is the perfect example of how to properly cover an Elton John song.
