Shape of You

James has posted his weekly update and MMM song over at 50 in 50 Marathon Quest, so it’s time for me to follow suit.

Ed Sheeran… know this guy?  He’s tearing up the charts worldwide right now.  He recently released his latest album, ÷ (Divide), and in the UK, he currently occupies 9 of the top 10 spots on the Billboard Top 100.  I’m not quite sure how they configure this… maybe it’s the top downloads for the week, and as his album was just released, that would make sense. Regardless, the number one song in the world is “Shape Of You.”

Have you heard it yet?  Probably, yes.  Overplayed?  Definitely, yes.  A great tune? Without a doubt.  It’s also my song choice of the week.

While the song itself has nothing to do with shapes or sizes of bodies, the words “I’m in love with the shape of you” are powerful… especially in this day and age of Photoshop and body shaming.  Which makes me love the song all the more.

  • Are you enjoying Ed Sheeran’s new album?
  • Do you think “Shape Of You” is overplayed?
  • What’s your favorite song this week?

      I had a time in there where I didn’t have a clue what was popular either, probably from 1995 to 2012, lol. But when I started running, I needed more music so I caved and gave up my eighties station. BTW, Ed is #1 in France too. 😀

    Paula, I will be honest, I do not listen to current day music – I do not listen to the radio and when listening to internet music, it is always the 70s. But I did listen to and watched the video. I am so stuck in the 70s. Happy day my friend. 🙂

      Oh Terry, I’m so sorry! I just checked my spam folder and found this comment in it. I hate when that happens!
      And I totally understand what you mean about modern day music. I preferred to only listen to 70s and 80s until I needed different music for my running playlists. Thank you for taking a listen and giving it a shot! Times and music… they have-a changed! 😀

      I haven’t heard any of his other songs from the new album yet, but I’m going to have to give a listen. He certainly is talented! I’ll have to listen to Give Me Love as well… not sure I recognize the name! 🙂

    I’ve been dreading the return of Ed Sheeran. I just don’t get the hype. His music isn’t awful, I just find it really generic, boring and repetitive. Especially those ballads he does that people fall in love with so the radio plays them one hundred times a day for eleventy billion years. (I get very passionate about music I don’t like. It’s usually the stuff that gets crazy popular too!) I think he is talented and a fantastic role model compared to many of today’s celebrities though and I actually do like the Country Roads song of his. But as you mentioned, overplayed. I’m sure his bestied Ms. swizzles will be back on the radio Soon too!

      Hahaha, I totally get what you’re saying. He’s not one of my favorites either. However, I do like this one and “Dont.” But they’re completely different from his ballads; these are kinda tippy tappy, lol! 😀
