Ellie Goulding’s take on Elton’s hit is a soft yet emotional power ballad, emphasising the tender lyrics that make this song such a classic example of good pop music. The simple piano compliments her vocals to perfection, allowing Ellie’s fluttery voice to quiver with vulnerability, especially on the ‘I hope you don’t mind’ hook, making this cover one of those rare creatures: one that matches up and improves upon the original.
