If you are Ed Sheeran fan, you pretty well know listening to his music album and watching him live is all the same. His three albums (+, x and ÷) clearly tell of how insane and talented of an artist he is. So while we eagerly wait for our chance to see him in concert, here is the list of his top 10 favorite songs.
1. Give Me Love“Give me love like never before,
'Cause lately I've been craving more,
And it's been a while but I still feel the same,
Maybe I should let you go,”
Give me love is quite the standout, thanks to the intense buildup of the track and the passion in his voice.
2. The A Team“And they say
She's in the Class A Team
Stuck in her daydream
Been this way since eighteen”
This heartfelt ballad talks about drug addiction.
3. Photograph - X“So you can keep me
Inside the pocket of your ripped jeans
Holding me closer 'til our eyes meet
You won't ever be alone, wait for me to come home”
The final single from Ed's second album x, is so touching with a tune that will make you for no reason whatsoever. This song is simply amazing as it explains that when you love someone, no matter how far they are they will always be in your heart and you will always remember them, even if they can't be with you time will never erase your memories and that's what you can hold on to when you miss them and you feel like you can't bear it anymore. You can’t ever get tired of listening of it.
4. Lego House“I'm gonna pick up the pieces
And build a Lego house
When things go wrong we can knock it down”
The way he sweetly croons this romantic tune is undeniably perfect for this swoon-worthy lyrics.
5. Thinking Out Loud“So honey now
Take me into your loving arms
Kiss me under the light of a thousand stars
Place your head on my beating heart
I'm thinking out loud
Maybe we found love right where we are”
“Thinking Out Loud” plain spoken lyrics revel in the idea of togetherness in this old-school balladry and a piano-based melody which will make you go awww. This song can’t get any more classic and timeless that it already is and is perfect for a first dance or any slow dance.
6. Dive“So don’t call me baby
Unless you mean it
Don’t tell me you need me
If you don’t believe it
So let me know the truth
Before I dive right into you”
The way Ed Sheeran passionately sings about his desired lover in the pre-chorus and chorus brings out some of the most ardent vocal strains of any other of his songs.
7. Eraser“I'm well aware of certain things that will destroy a man like me
But with that said give me one more, higher
Another one to take the sting away
I am happy on my own, so here I'll stay
Save your lovin' arms for a rainy day
And I'll find comfort in my pain”
This beautiful songs not only shows off his rapping skills but this songs is also jam-worthy that you won’t even realize how painstakingly personal the entire song is. That line “I will find comfort in my pain” is no joke.
8. Supermarket Flowers“You were an angel in the shape of my mum
When I fell down you'd be there holding me up
Spread your wings as you go
And when God takes you back we'll say Hallelujah
This song accounts of a woman packing her recent decreased mother’s belongings and is definite one of the quieter moments on ÷ (Divide). The ballad’s verses portray the mundanity of life in the face of death, while its chorus reflects on the presence of angels on earth.
9. Castle On The Hill“Me and my friends have not thrown up in so long, oh how we've grown
But I can't wait to go home
I'm on my way
Driving at ninety down those country lanes”
"Castle on the Hill" fondly nostalgic lyrics about "running from the law through the backfields" and "driving at 90 down those country lanes" says a million.
10. Shape Of You“Girl, you know I want your love
Your love was handmade for somebody like me
Come on now, follow my lead
I may be crazy, don't mind me”
Well, “Shape of you” definitely a place in this list, no better than any of other fantastic Ed Sheeran songs.
