"Burn" (CD Single)
What parents need to know
Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Ellie Goulding's single "Burn" is a catchy and clean dance track with an equally inoffensive music video. Neither has sexy stuff or references to drugs or alcohol, and there's only one mildly offensive word ("hell"), making the song OK for tweens and up.
What's the story?
Is it any good?
Although "Burn" is definitely a good single and sure to be a hit on the dance floor, it doesn't quite hit the same level of magic as Goulding's previous single, "Lights." As always, her breathy, ethereal vocals are a nice foil to the pounding dance beats, but the song and its bland music video just aren't that memorable.

Families can talk about which version of the song they like better: Ellie Goulding's or Leona Lewis'?
Why do you think Goulding chose to cover a song that had already been performed by a fellow famous British pop singer?
