First, look, listen, and beware that at the time of posting, this is all jail bait.
Now then. Since April this year, I’ve spent almost every weekend with these boys (and girls. Yes, there are girls.) And yes, these pretty (immensely talented) little children have made me feel old. They did teach me a few things though. For example, that song they’re singing at the end of the video? Yes, that one. I googled it.
I then torrented both Hobbit movies (I had watched the first one in 3D) and sat through four hours of uninspiring Jacksonian Tolkien, just to hear that song. I should have just scrolled to the credits. Le sigh. Anyway, I followed up by Googling the guy, the super talented ginger behind the voice. I read everything I could on him, tried to buy his music on Amazon, and when that failed, I downloaded a whole bunch of torrents. Sorry Ed. Did I mention he likes hoodies and shorts? And chokers? This boy, he is everything!!
Oh, that’s his name. Ed Sheeran. He looks like the friendliest celeb, though reality TV can be deceiving. He seems like the type of guy I could sit, have coffee, and joke around with for hours. Except I don’t drink coffee, and he’s a celebrity, so that would never happen. Also, he has the prettiest hair. And an accent that just makes me want to say pretty things to him. Or better yet, have him say pretty things to me. It doesn’t have to be fancy. He can read the laundry instructions for all I care. I just want to hear that gloriously beautiful accent.
I like his early music. I know I have all the songs and LPs, but I haven’t heard them all, because I keep playing the same ones over and over again. Notably, the one in the video up there. iTunes tells me I’ve played it 246 since July. There are a few others I like. Give me love. I’m a mess. Afire love. One night. Don’t. Be like you. Drown me out. But I inevitably come back to seeing fire. And that guy who raps on drown me out, he can read laundry as well. Or even just a list of bus stops. Really. Issorite. As long as I hear the accent. Sigh.
As I read more and more about Ed, I found that his (alleged) personality is as fun as his music. Lots of interesting stories you can Google for yourself. He did hook up with Pharell in the end though. And Jaime Foxx. I don’t like either of them, but I don’t fault the boy. Had to take his career to the next level and all that.
I just find it interesting that the two songs everybody loves – and the two songs that I don’t – are the ones done with Jaime Foxx and Pharell. And it’s at this point I feel really old, because while I’m busy going goo-goo over Ed, my baby is loving this fabulous new song by ‘Pharell and Someone’. *facepalm* Yes. This song. By Pharell and ‘someone.’ And to think this is my blood! *Bangs head on desk* Again, sorry Ed.
