Video — “Hanging On” by Ellie Goulding

I have seen the music video for “Hanging On”, and it is amazing. But I still like to imagine my own storyline when I hear a song, even if it divulges from the artist’s concept and vision. The exercise of imagining a music video as I hear a song makes the song feel personal to me, which makes me form more of an attachment to it. This song in particular fascinates me. The drawn-out vocals, combined with an elusive meaning, are so eerie.

Song: “Hanging On”. Artist: Ellie Goulding. Album: Halcyon. Written by: Patrick James Grossi, Ariel Rechtshaid. Produced by: Billboard. Label: Polydor. Original by: Active Child. 

The lyric I can relate to most is “Tell me if you feel this pain, ’cause I don’t wanna be a ball and chain”. I was overjoyed to find a ball and chain novelty bag by Judith Leiber to include in the video. Below are more “ball and chain” style handbags.
