Ellie Goulding: Sweet Disposition (originally by The Temper Trap)
The British pop firecracker Ellie Goulding took an acoustic approach to The Temper Trap tale of impetuous young love, Sweet Disposition. A song characterized by the mistakes and passions that come with a lack of seasoning in the relationship game are given an extra layer of sweetness with the floating melodies and embellishments that Ellie provides. The acoustic guitar and sparse piano provide a more emotive characteristic that places you in a pensive singers bedroom whilst reflecting back. While the original had a more hard driving drum beat and overall rhythm that almost celebrates the young mistakes, Ellie’s version takes a slightly more regretful tone. Overall the basis of the song is something we can all relate to, having felt you must rush into everything or else the love would disappear when you were young.
