When Ed Sheeran released his first single, "Sing," from his sophomore album, X, we were blown away. It was something a little different (with Pharrell producing the record, and Ed getting inspiration from Justin Timberlake's Justified and Futuresex/Lovesounds), but not that far removed from what we've heard from the man in the past.
His simple, sweet words evoke such powerful emotion. And songs like "Thinking Out Loud" flow like a stream of consciousness, which makes us think, aww, these lyrics really come straight from the heart. And doesn't every good song make you feel exactly that way? BRB, while we melt into a puddle of feelings while playing this song on loop.
