Keep On Dancin'

Songfacts®:

  • Written by Ellie Goulding with OneRepublic's Ryan Tedder, this finds her singing about not caring what other people say or do to her. No matter what stands in her way, Ellie's gonna, "Keep On Dancin'."
  • Goulding credits her boyfriend, McBusted bassist Dougie Poynter, for putting her in the mood to dance on Delirium. She told The Sun: "It's always nice when you meet a special person and it does come across in the music. It certainly did in the beginning. But I don't think I was in no mood to write sad songs. I can probably give it to myself that I can write a bloody good sad song, and I have done. And it can be very addictive. But this time it was about joy and being deliriously happy."
