Yup. So easy that no-one else does it.

Not screaming and terrified.

Who is he. Is he Adele, but with a smaller p****? He seems to be another James Blunt / Damien Rice / Seasick Steve type of wannabe troubadour.

He's no Leonard Cohen or Townes Van Zandt.

Ed Sheeran is great at writing songs. The trouble is, he's great at writing other people's songs.

Currently 2, yes 2 plagiarism suits against him, for "Thinking Out Loud", allegedly lifted from Marvin Gaye's "Let's Get It On" , and "Photograph", allegedly an almost direct copy of Matt Cardle's "Amazing".

Just a coincidence, I expect.

He actually robbed that from an aussie comedy group called Axis of Awesome.

Happens more and more now, if it's good enough for a Beatle, Led Zep etc.......

Relax people....

Ed Sheeran may well be talented or not... and he may have stolen the 4 chords theory or not as well as possibly lifting others work in his recorded songs.

That is what makes life so interesting - opinions.

We cannot all like or agree about stuff.... move on... accept that not everyone agrees with you.

Mass popular appeal doesn't always equate to outstanding talent.

This with bells on.

Bland. Bland. Bland.

Innovative songwriting is so thin on the ground today that the likes of Sheeran and Gary Barlow are lorded as geniuses. It's laughable and indicative of the dying art of popular music.

It's a sad state of affairs when you think of the names of truely great songwriting artists from these shores: Lennon, McCartney, Ray Davis, Bowie, Morrissey/Marr, Elvis Costello, Paul Weller, Elton John, Andy Partridge, Jagger/Richards, Van Morrison, Syd Barrett, Sting, Nick Drake, Ian Dury, Kate Bush, Cat Stevens...
