There are three things that a band or artist can do to earn my utmost respect and awe:

  1. Produce inventive and beautiful music (this is kind of a given)
  2. Write poetic, story-telling lyrics
  3. Perform perfectly live

Ed Sheeran checks off all three of these in a breeze. God, I love Ed Sheeran.

This week’s video is a live version of A Team, a really beautiful and heartbreaking song. I tend to think of songs as little pieces of literature, over-thought metaphors and all. But this song, as well as Sheeran’s others, remind me just how beautiful music can get.

Have a great week everyone!
