Ellie Goulding breaks down the science of a perfect pop song

published on July 17, 2020

I think it's as a misconception that like when you make pop music that it's not personal I think it's always personal I've always tried to strive to create a different kind of pop sound whilst I've always appreciated the

Formula of a pop song because there's a lot to it you can make a mathematically you know good song that people will just naturally come into kind of instinctively connect to decent-sized verse and then a pre-chorus and the

Chorus and you can get into all of that stuff but also I don't know sometimes they'll be songs that just have this real human element to them where people can sympathize and empathize and relay and just feel warmth and comfort with

With a song there is such a vulnerability in telling the whole story but at the same time I don't think that you should ever as an artist even as a pop artist feel like you have to hold back and the idea that

Like even a pop artist goes to the label and says I've got this song but just so you know it's really like it's really telling about a relationship or you know something that happened to me and they're like moves a little bit too you

Know too much maybe we should tone it down you know that to me is dangerous for an artist very exciting we've been working on this is so long rotate at a time where I was discovering myself as a woman and as you know feminist and as an

Individual that could strive for more provided I had enough love for myself the whole thing was a discovery I've always wanted to make pop records but like I said I've always wanted a push push it a bit and push push the

Boundaries and push what is acceptable for like a pop radio song and and also the fact I have an unusual voice I suppose though it's been described as I don't you know run around going baby

Worry about me you know it's not that's not who I am at all I'm a very shy like giggly kind of you know not remotely that character but I love I love I love that character I love that girl singing that that chorus and so I think now yeah

It's partly like knowing that you can take on this alter ego and it's it's fine it's kind of allowed that's what you're allowed to do I think
