Thinking Out Loud

Ed Sheeran's music video for his song "Thinking Out Loud," probably killed millions of fangirls back in October when he released it. It was one of his only music videos that he was actually in the entire time - something that many dedicated fans weren't used to, and better yet he was ballroom dancing. In my opinion, as a loyal fan, this was such a good move and better than any romance music video that would try to have something meaningful behind it and become cliche.

 The dancing wasn't some intricate interpretive dance that would take a while to interpret. It was just a "couple" dancing to a romantic ballad, and it was honestly one of the most beautiful things I've ever seen. I've never seen Ed dance like this or act like this.

The song since has quickly become one of the greatest romance songs of the year, becoming the next wedding song, Ed even performed it at a few weddings himself. His music seems to inspire, and his videos follow straight through with that. His videos have always been interesting and entertaining; they have included things such as carrying a strong message, talking cats, Rupert Grint pretending to be Ed, dancing puppets, dancing incorporated ASL, and many other things.


I have never once felt disappointed by his music videos, and he has always surprised me with the angle they've taken. I guess, what I mostly have to say about this is that Ed Sheeran, to me, is one of the greatest entertainers alive right now. He's willing to do what it takes to please fans, and he's got some serious guitar and vocal skills up his sleeve.  Now that he can ballroom dance, isn't he the whole packaged deal?  I think he has amassed many more fans since the release of the music video.

I will never get over this beautiful ballad and dance. Well done to Ed Sheeran and his team.
 He's even announced a North American headlining tour in the past week. He's heading to places he's never been on his own, (since he accompanied Taylor Swift on her Red tour).
