Ed Sheeran: Thinking Out Loud

Ed Sheeran: Thinking Out Loud http://www.jinglejanglejungle.net/2015/03/ed-sheeran.html #EdSheeran
"Thinking Out Loud" is a song by English singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran. It was written by Sheeran and Amy Wadge and produced by Sheeran's frequent collaborator Jake Gosling. The song is a romantic ballad which Sheeran has described as a "walking down the aisle song" [for a wedding]

The video for the song features Sheeran and his ballroom partner Brittany Cherry dancing, with choreography by Nappytabs and training help from Paul Karmiryan. He's got some moves!

The song has beautifully written lyrics. When you listen to the words of the song and watch Sheeran dance, it can be a very moving experience, at least it was for me.
