Unless you're a Sheerio, you probably think he's just a pop artist. Ed Sheeran possesses more talent in his little toe than most of us mere mortals will ever have in our whole body. If you're not a die-hard fan like myself, you may not be familiar with some of his best works.
1. "You Need Me, I Don't Need You"
This song is always better live. Every time he plays it, he adds to it and changes it up. There are multiple versions on youtube and itunes/spotify. You wouldn't think rapping with a guitar could sound so good.
In my (professional) opinion, this is his most emotional and heart-crushing song. His vocals are soft and beautiful, like a sweet, magnificent angel blessing my ears with the majesty of ten thousand queens.
"She" is a gentle, sweet song that I wish was about me.
4. "One Night"
5. "Grade 8"
6. "Guiding Light (With Foy Vance)"
"Guiding Light" is truly a musical masterpiece.
