Ella Henderson - Ghost (Oliver Nelson Remix)

5/16/2014 Tunes For Loons 0 Comments

This one goes out to everyone who quite litchralee feels like finals will be the end of their tragically young lives. Perhaps this poppy gem will help you see the light at the end of tunnel. OR for you f*ckrs who are already frolicking in fields with craft beer in hand (I irrationally despise you, btw) , I begrudgingly give you an addition to your generic darty playlist. Surprise surprise, this little songbird is british (SRLSY what is in the water over there? Brits crank out female indie/pop starlets like the Russians give us prepubescent gold metal winning gymnasts). But she's got a sassy, soulful sound and the production on this remix is very reminiscent of RAC, pretty much a standard recipe for making my ears feel happyyyyy. The chorus features the lines, "I keep going to the river to pray, cause I need something that can wash out the pain." I think she's singing about a dude who seriously fucked her over, but I'd rather pretend that she's praying that I can write this 12 pager in 4 hrs. Thx Ella, #solidarity. So I like her, plus she's like really pretty and I read somewhere that our brains are programmed to automatically like pretty people. It's science. NEway party on folks, see you on the other side...
