Ellie Goulding covered Take Me To Church and people can't decide if it's good or sacrilegious

The internet is conflicted.

YESTERDAY, ELLIE GOULDING surprised everybody and slyly unleashed a cover of Hozier’s Take Me To Church on the world.

The cover is quite a distinctive take on the original with Goulding paring the whole thing back, adding some synth and finger snaps.

Listen to it for yourself below.

But what do people make of it?

Some people underwent a transformation after listening to it

People’s lives were made

It reduced people to tears

And some even dared to suggest that it was better than Hozier’s


While others thought that suggestion was straight up sacrilegious

Some Hozier fans have had enough of covers, full stop

So, what do you think of Ellie Goulding’s cover?
