Aside from drowning into the music of some local artists and rock bands like Parokya ni Edgar and Eraserheads, Ed Sheeran has become my favorite pastime since college. Along with him were Paramore, Vertical Horizons, One Ok Rock, Nirvana, and many others. And just like any fangirls, it is totally a dream come true when you get the chance to meet your favorite artist in person. You can only imagine the excitement and happiness I felt October last year when it was announced that this red haired British guy will hold his concert on the beloved capital of my country. I could cry because of happiness. However, because of work and some inevitable circumstances, I failed to go to the concert held yesterday, March 12, 2015. It’s sad and it pains deeply. So what I did, I got drunk and drown myself. Yes, I got drunk in his songs and got drown into his music.
It’s sad when you can’t actually do what you really want. However, I’m still optimistic that I’ll see him someday. Probably not now, but soon. So, to cover up this sadness, I got drown again. of course, not in the waters but again into his songs. Here’s a list of the songs that I really like that were sung by him. So, all you out there, let’s get drunk. Kampai! HAHA :D
Lego house – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c4BLVznuWnU
Ron Weasley? Harry Potter? Is Rupert Grint and Ed Sheeran the same? Well, some of those who are unfamiliar with this British singer will probably mistook Ed with Ron. Why not? They both have reddish hair and some notable features.
Stay with me – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=48qwvBkpw1g
Though this song was made known to many people by Sam Smith, but believe me, you’ll fall more deeply with Ed Sheeran with this version of this song. (My perspective only. HAHA)
All of the stars – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nkqVm5aiC28
Does the title rings a bell? Does it sound like the movie Fault in our Stars? Well, no worries. This song actually belongs to the list of soundtracks of the movie written by John Green.
Small bump – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A_af256mnTE
The song tells a moving story about the excitement of a father waiting for his wife who’s inside the delivery room. However, the anticipation of the said father suddenly broke into pieces when in turn out into a miscarriage. Some sources say that this actually happened, not to Ed, but to his friend.
I’m mess – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2ChLcH4ZPr0
Feeling sick and tired of everything? Well, Ed shares the same sentiments with you with this song. A perfect complement on those times when nothing works accordingly in your life
Some people drink in order to wash away all their sorrows, however they didn’t know that sorrows know how to swim. The song tells about a person who just ended a relationship with a beloved and decided to get drunk to be able to handle the pain. The song made more people interested because of the video where Ed and a cat has been featured.
Ed does not look like your typical rocker or musician. He dresses up like his totally a nobody. No flair, no sense of fashion. However, he only proves that one does not need to flaunt in order for his music to be heard. This is what he want to share on this song. For him, he looks more or less of a university student than a musician. The song evolves on a love story that revolves around in a university – UNIversity.
No Diggity feat. Passenger – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F2K_7-MHt3k
Passenger and Ed Sheeran together? This is a must-seen! Don’t miss it.
One Night – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZaOrcB5qQhw
He really has a thing on prostitutes. Can’t explain. But the way he sings proves that you don’t need to be forceful to express your thoughts – and that love can happen even in the most unexpected time, place and person.
Favorite song. :) There were rumors that this songs was actually meant for Ellie Goulding back when Ed found out her affair with Niall Horan. No formal statements were given however, this is, for me, his greatest hit. Why? Just listen to it and you’ll come to think how can cursing about a bad luck or bad day sounds so sweet when he sings it. It’s like listening to “Fuck you” by Lily Allen but a much sweeter and calmer version – English people perks probably.
Thinking out loud – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lp-EO5I60KA
Probably one of those songs which you can’t help but get LSS to and fall in love with. Well, that’s pretty normal. Who wouldn’t fall for someone who wants to spend infinity with you? The song sounds so cool to listen to as well. It is believed that this song has been inspired by his current girlfriend Athina Andrelos.
