Los Angeles: Singer Ellie Goulding is happy to see her number `Burn` taking the top spot ahead of Lady Gaga`s much publicised comeback single `Applause` on the UK chart.

The 26-year-old singer, who previously succeeded in beating Gaga, 27, with her album `Lights` hopes to win again, reported MTV.

"It feels quite funny because I remember there was a similar thing when Lights, my album, was up against Gaga`s and it somehow got to number 1 above her album, so it feels like that again," she said.

"It`s her big comeback single and she hasn`t released anything in a while. Hopefully mine will stay at the top. It`s put up a really good fight," she added.
Goulding feels she has a long way to go.

"It`s mad. I don`t put myself on as high a level as Katy Perry and Lady Gaga. I`ve still got a long way to go. I`ve toured with Katy and I met Lady Gaga when I won the Brit Award but they`ve both been an inspiration to me," she said.
