I didn't like Ed Sheeran.
I mean, really didn't like him.
Not him personally of course - I've never met him and know nothing about him - but as an artist I mean.
Then, sitting at home, working away all day with the radio on a station that played "Thinking Out Loud" incessantly, I had to finally admit it:
The man is a genius.
If you never listen to anything else by him, listen to him sing just one word.
Yes, one word.
It's the "now" at 1:19 in this video. (click a bit before that to get the lead in)
Forgive me Ed.
U da man.
Tip: turn the ridiculous picture off and just listen. I think it's vids like this that irritated me so much about him in the first place. Just sing Ed. Please.
