There are three things that a band or artist can do to earn my utmost respect and awe:
- Produce inventive and beautiful music (this is kind of a given)
- Write poetic, story-telling lyrics
- 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!
