There are literally countless number of covers of Hozier – covers of “Take Me To Church”. Add another to the list? Not enough. Ellie Goulding is the last celebrity to cover the song and she has done a unique job on it. The weird sounds of the original track have been removed and Ellie Goulding’s version is light on music (electric music) and gives prominence to vocals.
Hear Ellie Goulding sing “Take Me To Church”
What do you think?
The emotional aspect of the song has diminished, in my opinion. Hozier has an incredible vocal range and he uses it perfectly to emphasize the important points and while Ellie Goulding’s attempt is laudable, it is not quite there. Ellie Goulding has highs but they are not as powerful as Hozier’s. It has something to do with Hozier’s deep voice and Ellie’s sultry voice. It is not good judgment to compare the original and the reprint. So we leave it up to you to decide if she did a good job, and when you do, let us know in a comment.
