Well, he’s done it again – is there anything that Ed Sheeran can’t do?
As he gets ready to embark on his 2018 Australian Tour, he’s latest single sits a #1 in the Aussie charts.
And, to add further popularity to his song – this time he’s teamed up with Queen B (that’s Beyonce for those a little long in the tooth) to give us what is bound to be a wedding favourite.
With lyrics that include:
Well I found a woman, stronger than anyone I know
She shares my dreams, I hope that someday I’ll share her home
I found a love, to carry more than just my secrets
To carry love, to carry children of our own…
Baby, I’m dancing in the dark, with you between my arms
Barefoot on the grass, listening to our favourite song
When I saw you in that dress, looking so beautiful
I don’t deserve this, darling, you look perfect tonight,
this song has wedding written all over it.
I’ve been a bit late to the party following this song up the charts, but when I did finally hear it last week there were two things I knew instantly: (1) who was singing it; and (2) this is going to be high rotation at the Summer and Autumn weddings across the country.
It reminded me of the time that I first heard Savage Gardens’ I knew I loved you Before I Met You back in my youth when I was at university in Brisbane in 1999.
I can still clearly recall driving through the Valley as B105 played the song for the first time and the response was crazy – the number of brides-to-be that called in to say they had finally said they found their wedding song, was unbelievable.
Clearly a song written to pull at the heart strings or, for those cynics amongst us, marketing genius!
Either way, Ed has yet another certified hit on his hands and one that I expect many couples will share as their first dance.
Which brings me to my question…what is your favourite wedding song of all time??? Or, what is your song that makes you think of that someone special???
