Ed Sheeran, the singer of “Shape of You“, the song which held the number one place in Billboard’s top 100, after all it was one of the best Ed Sheeran songs. Who wouldn’t be deeply in love with his voice? Or, his tunes? His beats? Apart from being crafted melodiously, his songs offer us Heaven on a silver platter. Sometimes, just sometimes, the slow rise and fall of pleasant music will soothe our fears. All of us face that one moment in our lives when we want to forget everything and close ourselves up in our rooms, listening to nothing but soft music. Ed Sheeran’s voice is a perfect complement to such situations.
Here’s Best Ed Sheeran songs list that should be on your playlist.
This list does not contain “Shape of You”, “Castle on the Hill”, “Thinking Out Loud” and “Galway Girl” since most of us have it on our playlists.
13. Ed Sheeran – Happier
The title might say “Happier” but this is actually a break-up song. It’s about a man who sees his ex-girlfriend “happier” with her new boyfriend.
Cause baby you look happier, you do
My friends told me one day I’ll feel it too
And until then I’ll smile to hide the truth
But I know I was happier with you
12. Ed Sheeran – Give Me Love
Love comes in all forms and shapes. It has no gender, doesn’t care what kind of bodies are melting together in the heat of passion. In the face of love, even Gods shall surrender and bow.
Give a little time to me or burn this out,
We’ll play hide and seek to turn this around,
All I want is the taste that your lips allow,
My, my, my, my, oh give me love,
11. Ed Sheeran – ONE
‘Coz you’re the only one.
10. Ed Sheeran – Small Bump
This song is about an unborn baby. He wrote this for his friend who lost her unborn child when she was 5 months pregnant.
And you can lie with me
With your tiny feet
When you’re half asleep
I’ll leave you be
Right in front of me
For a couple weeks
So I can keep you safe
9. Ed Sheeran – I’m A Mess
We are all messes of the same kind. One for love, one for passion and one for life. Whatever the reason might be, we tend to turn ourselves into messes and swim through them.
See the flames inside my eyes
It burns so bright I wanna’ feel your love
Easy baby maybe I’m a liar
But for tonight I wanna’ fall in love
Put your faith in my stomach
8. Ed Sheeran – Photograph
Photos are special. Our generation knows better ‘coz we cling to photos like crazy. Group photos, selfies, crazy stuff and what not! Years later, these photos cause us Nostalgia. Photos are containers of Love, right?
We keep this love in a photograph
We made these memories for ourselves
Where our eyes are never closing
Hearts are never broken
Times forever frozen still
7. Ed Sheeran – The A Team
The story of a call girl. The beautiful isn’t always painted with happiness. They have an inner struggle, a daily struggle. Only, their tears wash away their fake paint of happiness when they are in isolation.
Ripped gloves, raincoat
Tried to swim and stay afloat
Dry house, wet clothes
Loose change, bank notes
Weary-eyed, dry throat
Call girl, no phone
6. Ed Sheeran with Beyonce – Perfect Duet
When we talk about best Ed Sheeran songs, this one is ought to be there. This is another version of Ed Sheeran’s Perfect single. Beyonce’s voice is more than angelic! This song equals Heaven!
Now I know I have met an angel in person
And she looks perfect
I don’t deserve this
You look perfect tonight
5. Ed Sheeran – Dive
An old-school type of song to which you’ll sway your muscles as you listen to it. This song is my personal favourite on this list. Do have it on your playlist!
So don’t call me baby
Unless you mean it
And don’t tell me you need me
If you don’t believe it
So let me know the truth
Before I dive right into you
4. Ed Sheeran – You need me, I don’t need you
Out of the songs mentioned in this list, this might be the only song that isn’t melodious. A fast beat song and you’ll get addicted to this. It’s a song that encases the theme of “Struggling” and is a beautiful pop song by Ed Sheeran. I’m in love.
3. Ed Sheeran – Afire Love
Why, oh why? Why do you make us cry, Ed Sheeran? With songs like this, the beat and the lyrics, would are hearts still beat or crumble to bits?
Darlin’ hold me in your arms
The way you did last night
And we’ll lie inside
For a little while here oh
2. Ed Sheeran – Lego House
Rupert Grint! This song is a beautiful nostalgic childish creation that stars Rupert Grint, aka, Ronald Weasley from Harry Potter movie series.
Ed Sheeran + Rupert Grint = Perfection.
1. Ed Sheeran – Don’t
This is by far the best Ed Sheeran songs, according to me. A must-have song on your playlist! The beauty of Ed Sheeran’s songs is that they tell us a story in the form of a song. A movie can easily be filmed based on his lyrics. Don’t you agree?
