Song In My Head: Love Me Like You Do (Fifty Shades of Grey OST)

My ringtone had been “Anything Could Happen” by Ellie Goulding, until I changed it this year. I like Ellie. Her voice is distinct and her music is easy to listen to, so when I heard her new song on the radio, I immediately picked it up. I proceeded to download the song on my phone and much to my delight, I found out that the song is part of the OST for “Fifty Shades of Grey”. It is a catchy song with lyrics that definitely suit the controversial R-18 movie and it’s been on constant replay on my drive to and from work, for almost a week now.
Love Me Like You Do
Ellie Goulding
 

You’re the light, you’re the night
You’re the color of my blood
You’re the cure, you’re the pain
You’re the only thing I wanna touch
Never knew that it could mean so much, so much
You’re the fear, I don’t care
‘Cause I’ve never been so high
Follow me to the dark
Let me take you past our satellites
You can see the world you brought to life, to life
So love me like you do, lo-lo-love me like you do
Love me like you do, lo-lo-love me like you do
Touch me like you do, to-to-touch me like you do
What are you waiting for?
Fading in, fading out
On the edge of paradise
Every inch of your skin is a holy gray I’ve got to find
Only you can set my heart on fire, on fire
Yeah, I’ll let you set the pace
‘Cause I’m not thinking straight
My head spinning around I can’t see clear no more
What are you waiting for?
Love me like you do, lo-lo-love me like you do
Love me like you do, lo-lo-love me like you do
Touch me like you do, to-to-touch me like you do
What are you waiting for?
Love me like you do, lo-lo-love me like you do (like you do)
Love me like you do, lo-lo-love me like you do (yeah)
Touch me like you do, to-to-touch me like you do
What are you waiting for?
I’ll let you set the pace
‘Cause I’m not thinking straight
My head spinning around I can’t see clear no more
What are you waiting for?
Love me like you do, lo-lo-love me like you do (like you do)
Love me like you do, lo-lo-love me like you do (yeah)
Touch me like you do, to-to-touch me like you do
What are you waiting for?
Love me like you do, lo-lo-love me like you do (like you do)
Love me like you do, lo-lo-love me like you do (yeah)
Touch me like you do, to-to-touch me like you do
What are you waiting for? 
A few years ago a friend told me to download an ebook. That was the first time I ever heard of E.L. James’ Fifty Shades of Grey and I decided to read the novel despite how little I knew about it. Before this book, I honestly haven’t read any romance novels, but I went for it because I was curious. And when I began reading, I carried on because as much as I transfixed on Edward Cullen before, Christian Grey captivated my senses, too. So what does this actually say about me then? Does this mean I like vampires? Do I look for men in power? Do I like men to have control over me? Well, if you’ve read the books, Edward and Christian adored Bella and Anastasia. It may be the unhealthy type of adoration–the type that’s ominous and all-consuming but I understand the appeal and it is no wonder women worshiped them. And in all honesty, I think if have the opportunity to live a bizarre fictional existence, I’d also say: “Give me a wealthy vampire with super strength and amazing prowess in bed, please!” (Oh no, I did not just say that…)
Okay, let me make things clear. I may have read the books and enjoyed my mental picture of Christian Grey, but it does not make me a pure follower of the whole idea. First of all, I find BDSM very weird and unnecessary and in the case of Twilight, I think Bella was being stupid when she chose to become a vampire. Nevertheless, I can see myself falling for these type of men–the type that’s dangerous and mysterious. I mean, if he will love me right, the kind of love that’s written in books… The Mr. Darcy type of love that overflows and breaks boundaries, I’d surely go for it. Anyway, we’re just talking about a fictional existence right? So basically, it really isn’t about vampires or wealth or even about talents in the bedroom. Bottom line: women fixate on fictional men like Edward, Christian and Darcy because these men know what to do…
Happy Valentine’s Day!
