Music Review: Shape Of You (Ed Sheeran)

At number one through February 25 at Billboard’s Hot 100 is Shape Of You by Ed Sheeran.. And what, it’s got over 287 million YouTube views and counting?! Not surprised. Not surprised.

Wanna check out the animation?

First thing that would grab you here is the beat. I mean, wow! Surely makes you feel like moving those hips, eh?! It’s like you’re at the beach or somethin’ actually. No wonder that even if the video’s just an animation, it’s been gettin’ praises! Yey!

One wouldn’t even notice the lyrics except for “I’m in love with your body”..

And speaking of lyrics, that repetition of being “in love with your body” is kinda.. Misleading though. Love again has been abused. Thus, a confusion between love and lust. Yet if only for taking it in a ‘shallower’ understanding, love here pertains to ‘like’ or ‘adore’.

After all, love can’t be founded on physicality. Real love starts at the platonic level.. Conceiving commitment before moving towards expression.

THE CLUB ISN’T THE BEST PLACE TO FIND A LOVER, SO THE BAR IS WHERE I GO

The above are the first lines that are played in the song. And true enough and in a deeper sense — indeed, the club is no place to find a LOVEr. But because of opting for the ‘club’ instead, then the loveR here is really not about love, but some mate for that matter. Did ya’ follow?

More so given these lines..

WE PUSH AND PULL LIKE A MAGNET DO.. AND NOW MY BEDSHEETS SMELL LIKE YOU.

So don’t get confused. Love maybe an abused word but ‘real love’ could only be digested by those capable of it. In all, it’s a cool song by Ed Sheeran, and we’re just wondering why isn’t his songs played in movies??

Or did we just miss somethin’?

Music Review: Thinking Out Loud (Ed Sheeran)

Probably one of Ed Sheeran’s best songs is Thinking Out Loud, and interestingly it’s down 3 spots in the Billboard’s Top 100 Hits at 7th..

Like the dancing? It’s good, something different. But it could have also been nice if there was some sort of story in the music video.

Anyway, more than the wordings the melody was real cool. So, dancing and a “feel good” kinda aura definitely comes to fore..

It doesn’t matter if the song’s number 7 or what.. with close to 120 million YouTube views, sure most everyone are just thinking out loud!

Music Review: Don’t (Ed Sheeran)

Probably one of the more tamed lyrics involving love relationships is Billboard’s number 17 hit song – Don’t by Ed Sheeran.

Well, Don’t is another song about cheating and yes, like first said, the wordings are bit mild which is a bit more acceptable to more conservative cultures.

Still, what’s really obvious in the music video is the guy’s body language, you know. Kinda snaky. Of course, trying to blend with the beat. Yeah, looked even cooler when the girl danced along, yes?!

It’s just a wonder that its YouTube views are coming in a little slow with still 13.5 million views after 2 months. Perhaps its uniqueness would help along, besides, it’s surging in the charts.
