Cherry Pick of the Week: Ellie Goulding - How Long Will I Love You
This week's Pick from Ellie Goulding stands out for two reasons: Her voice is so soothing that it would be hard not be moved by her singing a Dominos menu, that and the original version of How Long Will I Love You from Scottish gems The Waterboys featured in About Time - that we eventually watched this week.
If you haven't watched About Time yet, make a little window in your week for it. Yep it's Richard Curtis but it's also Domhnall Gleeson, Rachel McAdams & Bill Nighy (who should totally have been on the poster!).
It's more than a simple love story, it's a gut punching, dry witted, cleverly constructed film with a heartfelt sentiment. It's more a movie about fatherly love than anything else. We watched it with my Dad this week, who hadn't been well and there was bawlage, some covert and some open but it made our week a little bit better and that's just what a movie should do.
I won't be able to hear this song again without thinking of About Time and Ellie does such a beautiful job as a reminder.
