Interesting facts and trivia about Love Me Like You Do - From "Fifty Shades Of Grey". By Songfacts®.

Ellie Goulding recorded this sultry power ballad for the 50 Shades Of Grey movie. It finds the British songstress channeling literature student Ana Steele's desire for the wealthy entrepreneur Christian Grey. 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. The anthemic song was penned by Swedish singer Tove Lo and songwriters Savan Kotecha and Ilya Salmanzadeh. It was produced by Ali Payami and Taylor Swift producer Max Martin.

There's more going on in the simple title than meets the eye. Not only does "Love Me Like You Do" pique our interest (how does he love?), but it also can be interpreted as physical or emotional love, as both aspects are intertwined in the lyrics and in the 50 Shades of Grey story.

The song's music video mixes footage from the Fifty Shades Of Grey movie with shots of Goulding ballroom dancing, a re-creation of Anastasia Steele's first dance with Christian Grey. The English singer told Dave Berry and Lisa Snowdon on the Capital Breakfast show: "I basically have become fascinated with ballroom dancing so I was like, 'Can I please do some dancing in it?" Goulding added: "There's no handcuffs. There's none of that stuff. There's some sensual bits in it I suppose. Not very actually! There's a nice man it, he's not famous but something tells me he might get a few more admirers after this video. He's kind of in the shadows so you can't really see him that much, which is a shame because he's a lovely guy."
