Ed Sheeran is a true talent and we should give him more recognition.

The Top 15 Ed Sheeran Songs You Should Hear Before 'No. 6' Releases

Lately, I've been listening to Ed Sheeran a lot. Ever since I was about 13, I've been religiously listening to Ed Sheeran and following his music career. He's a true talent. Therefore, I have compiled a list of songs that everyone should listen to and get more acquainted with.

Give Me Love

Give Me Love has been one of my favorite Ed Sheeran songs ever since it was released. Something about the tortured soul vibe of this song encapsulated my soul.

Take It Back

I could sing the chorus of this song at karaoke every weekend. I love when Ed raps over his acoustic. I also love it when he gets the raspiness in his voice. He's a true talent.

Galway Girl

Galway Girl touches my little Irish heart every time I hear it. It also makes me want to jump into an Irish jig and onto a plane to head to Galway.


UNI has to be my favorite Ed song hands down. I've been trying to master the rap part since I was about 13, and I have yet to succeed. Also, to this day I still think his play on "you and I ended over U N I" is brilliant.

The Man

The man is another rap ballad, but this one tells a torturing story. I find myself imagining this story in my head, riding down the road on a rainy day. I think about all the heartbreaks I once had.

Wake Me Up

This song is poetry being read over a soft piano. I get chills every time I listen to this song and I can never decide if I want a romance like this or just someone to love me the way Ed loved this woman.


This song gave me chills the first time I heard it. It's one of those songs that your soul just knows the words to. Ed sings as a truly tortured soul in this song and it's absolutely beautiful.


I love this song because it is so soft and smooth. Ed's voice is so calming and absolutely beautiful . I could truly listen to this song for hours and be calmed every moment.

Nancy Mulligan

This song is so cute! It pulls from traditional Irish music and it also tells the love story of Ed's Irish grandparents.

I See Fire

This song was featured in The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug. Perhaps that is the exact reason as to why I listen to this song when I'm working on my stuff for Dungeons and Dragons or after I've watched my fill of Game of Thrones for the day. Either way, this song is absolutely brilliant and Ed uses beautiful imagery in his lyrics.

You Need Me, I Don't Need You

This song is so iconic because Ed is really just laying into people that are fake to him. All in a typical Ed rap he talks about all the struggles he faced while climbing his way to success.


If I remember correctly, Ed performed this song at a MTV awards show one year, and ever since then I have loved this song. Something about the song feels so haunting, and, as always, Ed's voice is beautiful.

So there you have it. The top fifteen songs of Ed Sheeran's that are underrated! If you get a moment of spare time give these songs a listen. I promise you won't be disappointed.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
