    This was last week.

    I ignored it till it was necessary to listen, as Ed Sheeran ain't really my thing...

    And, well... Holy Crap :)!

    I'm beginning to have a little hope once more for the future of R&R:

    A buddy I work with showed this song to me the day after it came out... I've never been an Ed Sheeran fan, but this song is pretty good. I tried explaining to him that there's an entire genre that is very similar to this. Didn't seem to care :p

    That is a fun song. I've often been surprised by some of the music I love playing that I wouldn't even give a chance to listen to normally. (Bruno Mars being one of the artists I now enjoy playing)

    1) Didn't Milli Vanilli get in trouble for doing that?
    2) You sure this isn't Lenny Kravitz?
    3) Wake me up when Ed Sheehan has an original idea.
    4) Not a bad tune.

    My group is supposed to be playing this one soon, too. I was skeptical when the BL said it was an Ed Sheeran song, but I guess it's not so bad.

    That video itself is pretty seizure-inducing.
