I literally learned the original of this song existed about 2 days ago as I was looking through 1970s number 1s and it caught my eye. Though if I actually listened to it maybe I'd recognise it.

I stuck it on (the Ellie version) and recognised the song from before the first line finished, haha! I wonder how many pre-80s songs I really do know without knowing the titles/artists...

Nice cover. I hope she goes back to what is real to her with her new material. "On My Mind" was beyond crap, and just didn't feel like she was being true to herself.

No. Haven't heard this and don't want to tbh. The original is lovely and I am sure can't be bettered.

It's a nice cover but I'm glad it's lead me to the original! Really nice folk song and it's such an interesting topic to write a song about - can't imagine anyone singing about a painter or sympathising with someone of the past in a 2018 release.

At least it's an inspired choice of song to cover by Ellie - no shade towards her at all as she does sing it very nicely.

Can she not stick to using her horrible mousey voice to "sing" her own shitty songs rather than murdering other people's songs?

I do, you realise I can voice my opinion if I want right? And you don't have to read it.

Uh this is alright but it's just about the opposite of what I like Ellie Goulding doing. It's a real shame (to me) most of her biggest hits are the most MOR songs she's done. I'm aware that that's probably a minority opinion tho.
