Ed Sheeran

Over a night, I went from not caring much about Ed Sheeran’s music at all to feeling an urge to see him live as soon as possible. Reason: I was sitting in front of my tv when Sheeran’s Live at Wembley Stadium came on and I could not stop watching. The whole thing struck me as quite phenomenal; a guy with a guitar – just a guy with a guitar – playing three sold out shows at Wembley Stadium in a row? What?! A couple of songs later I finally understood how talented Ed Sheeran really is. Before this night in front of my tv, I’ve just been like yeah, Thinking Out Loud is a nice song whenever I’ve heard it on the radio. Even if I don’t see myself increasing my listening to his music, I’m definitely looking forward to Sheeran visiting Sweden again for a live show. Using this tv live special to make me realize what I’ve missed in the past was probably the most clever thing Ed Sheeran could do to convince me I have to purchase tickets whenever I get the opportunity.

“Tell me why I can’t be there where you are”

On December 10 I was watching the Nobel banquet on tv. Why? Because it is Swedish law. Swedes who don’t watch the banquet will go to prison. Every year we are forced to oohh at all the dresses and aahh at all the food being served. Little did we know that this year’s Nobel banquet had quite a treat to offer. All of a sudden, Anna Ternheim – one of the most melancholic Swedish artists – performed this breathtaking version of Show Me The Meaning of Being Lonely (originally by the Backstreet Boys):

Isn’t it incredible? I want to live in this moment for a long time. For many years, I’ve tried to explain to people how the Backstreet Boys always had the most high quality songs of all the boy bands. Maybe now people will finally begin to agree with me.
