Reading Break #1

Hello,
I wanted to do some other posts about things I love, just for something different, so I'm calling it reading break, as these are non book related posts!
Music Reccommendations #1
I love music, so I'm going to do a couple of posts about bands and artists that I love.
The first artist is Ed Sheeran. I love his music, how stripped back and uneditted it sounds, but is still catchy. My 2 favourite songs from him are The A Team and You Need Me, I Don't Need You. The A Team is the first single from his album +, and I had it stuck in my head for months. I love the lyrics too, even if it is about drugs, it's still a beautiful song. You Need Me, I Don't Need You is another song he released as a single, but it has a very different sound from The A Team. I love the kind of rappy feel to this song, and I can proudly say I can rap the whole thing. Again the lyrics are great, but this one has a more upbeat tempo.
The next band I love is Fun. I love the upbeat poppy sound they have, their songs make me smile. My favourite two songs from them are from their first album Aim & Ignite, and they are All The Pretty Girls and I Wanna Be The One. Fun released All The Pretty Girls as a single, and that's when I first discovered them. I think this is a really great catchy song, that always gets stuck in my head. I Wanna Be The One, is a much slower song, that has some really nice lyrics in it, but is still catchy.
The last band I'm going to mention in this post is The Plain White T's. They released their first album in 2005, and their newest in 2010. My 2 favourite songs from them are Hey There Delilah and Rhythm of Love. Hey There Delilah is from their first album, and is a very well known tune, which is very popular. It's a love song, that has a catchy tune. Rhythm of Love, is from their newest album, and is a bit faster paced, but is still a love song. I love this song, it is a feelgood song, that instantly makes you feel better.
