tgthe: shape of you by ed sheeran


If given a choice between listening to this song and never listening to music for the rest of my life, I’d pick the latter.
It is garbage.

It’s worse than garbage, at least garbage is picked up eventually. This song is everywhere polluting screens and airwaves. Just hearing it irritates me. Lyrically, it’s shit. The arrangement is lazy. The repetitive ooh I ooh I ooh I (or whatever the heck he’s saying) makes me want to bang my head against a hard surface. Repeatedly.

In fact, Ed Sheeran in general makes me want to move to a cave where I never have to listen to him again. I liked his first album. I really did, but everything that’s come after it has been atrocious. He’s singlehandedly ruining the ‘white guy plays acoustic guitar’ trope because they all sound like superior or inferior versions of him now (sorry James Blunt).

Ugh, anyway, yes. Just wanted you all to know.

  1. I HATE that song so much. That my 9-year-old daughter loves it scares me. I don’t think she understands what she’s saying when she sings along. At least, I hope she doesn’t. Yep… I want to rip my ears off when I hear it. Instead, I usually just run. Away.

    1. Lol, she probably doesn’t! In ten years time she’ll be replaying it on YouTube and saying, ‘So THAT’S what he means!’. But yeah, my goodness, this song is trash. It’s like he sat down for five minutes and farted it out, that’s how bad it is. I’m with you, I run away after physically recoiling and blocking my ears. I’m glad it’s not just me, lol!
