MUSIC MONDAY: Anything Could Happen by Ellie Goulding

I always have faith in music.  I’ve always been a music girl, even though majority of my choices are what you would call dated.  But of course, with the sudden rise of immediately popular pop singers and the ease of recording material with autotune and synthesizers, it’s easy to be fooled that talent on record is not as evident (or present at all) on live performances.

And then, this beautiful lady sang on Ryan Seacrest’s show.  Talk about pitch perfect.

20150518 Ellie Goulding Anything Could Happen

Ellie Goulding may have skyrocketed (further) into fame with that theme song from Fifty Shades of Grey but really, this girl is just a butt load of talent.  What a voice!  This video is two years old and I still hit the play button over and over.

Husky voices are eternally sexy.  But raw talent is miles miles miles sexier.

Listening to Ellie

Sorry for being MIA for the past few weeks.  I don’t have much to write about really, mostly because I am so preoccupied with school and work.

What is important is that I am happy.

And I am pleasantly surprised by Ellie Goulding.  I chanced upon her song Anything Could Happen while I was randomly playing songs over the radio while running.  That song is surprisingly motivating!

Naturally, it being a relatively new song to my ears, I looked it up on YouTube and found this pleasant surprise.

That is one talented lady.  Seriously.  I was right to love European artists.

But yeah, she’s not my discovery.

So far, I’ve only been working and studying and squatting.  I’m all about my butt lately, and admittedly, I haven’t been as consistent with the running.  What I’ve been consistent about is the squatting.  You’ll even notice it on my Instagram where I host Motivation Mondays.  Hahahaha.  I know right.  Maybe I should make it a full blown fitness journey page.  I need to tighten stuff naturally.  Hahahaha.

Oh darling.  It has been a very wild ride.
