Give Me Love
Honestly this is my favorite song. Ed Sheeran's voice says it all, and this song is truly heartbreaking.
The most amazing song out there!
A magnificent Voice...
This is my favorite song of his! Really catchy and beautiful at the same time :) Should be number one!
I'm a man, but even I get wet from listening to this

2The A Team
GREAT, BEAUTIFUL, WONDERFUL, HEARTFELT, AMAZING! So many words come to mind when hearing this song.
Ed Sheeran is so TALENTED and this song is AMAZING! Just WAIT and he will become a new SUPERSTAR. EVERY song in his new album is just OUTSTANDING. He needs to be known a lot QUICKER I LOVE HIM!
I like this song cause there is a lot of feelings behind this song. Also the way he plays the guitar and you could feel the emotions being felt in the song
I just LOVE this song! It's got BEAUTIFUL music as well as a STORY behind it that made me SOB when I realised what it was about.

3Lego House
Such a great song and just a little bit better that Drunk and The A Team! It also has a fantastic video clip that featured Rubert Grint in it. This song will really grow on you and
This song deserves the number 1 title along with A Team but I like this song better. Great intro amazing chorus and outstanding song.
I just recently discovered this artist. I think his voice and song writing is amazing, first time I heard this song it made me cry briliant song
I love his voice. It sounds absolutely magical. All I want from life is more songs like this one, which makes you feel good as soon as it begins. It's so cute!

4Kiss Me
THIS IS MY FAVORITE SONG EVER! Ed Sheeran is an amazing artist he inspired me to write music, this song speaks to me so much and I always shed a tear every time I hear it because it is so. Beautiful, I recommend this song to EVERYONE! It is beautiful, touching, and truly brilient!
First song that made me shiver and gave me chills in my spine listening to it. I so love this
I find it so hard to choose my favourite Ed song, but this one captivated me from the first time I heard it. It's beautiful both lyrically and melodically, and I love how it showcases the male's vulnerability and desire to be loved rather than the girl's. So beautiful.

6I See Fire
I remember seeing the second hobbit movie in the cinema and soon as it was over I stood up to leave but this song started playing in the credits and I immediately sat down.


By far his best song. Give it a couple of months and it will be at the top of this list!
When I saw the second hobbit movie in the cinema I sat and listened to this song.. it was almost like it was magical. I didn't know the name of the song or anything, I just hoped I would find it and hear it again and then I did
Umm, why is this not number 1?

7You Need Me, I Don't Need You
This is an amazing song by Ed Sheeran. I really think it's his best and personally, I love his lyrics, they have some serious aspects and he puts them together so rhythmically!
I just love the rythym of this song. It's fast and just fun to listen to. It has great lyrics, but all of his songs do. I just find it one of his most entertaining songs.
I actually think it's his best
Especially the live room Version, where he kind of sings a Medley of it, with some Reggae passages and 50-Cent In the club
More comments about You Need Me, I Don't Need You

Love this song vote this one up should be number 3 or 4 amazing song should not be so low down
Love this song mix of singing and rap and has such a great beat, and sticks in your head and you can link with it, and relate it back to your own life. The video combines seriousness and humor. My favorite ed sheeran song
This song is my second favorite song! Grade 8 is my favorite
It is a perfect mix of fast and slow and has a feel good vibe attached to it. I love this song! I keep waiting for this song to come in my playlist. Favorite.

9Autumn Leaves
Words can't describe my move for this song. It is so sad and beautifully written. Thank you Ed Sheeran.
'float down like autumn leaves, hush now close your eyes before the sleep. And we're miles away but yesterday you were here with me <3<3. ' amazing ed Sheeran is just amazing
This song made me cry when I listened to it. It holds so much meaning to me and hurts my heart every time I hear it. It definitely deserves to be in the top 10!

10Wake Me Up
Its amazing so touching would like to hear more songs like this unbelieveable how he can write such good lyrics lots of love ed!
Not only does this song make me giggle it makes my heart leap, Ed is just amazing and I wish more people could see it. Wake me up is just beautiful and displays what I love best in Ed, his ability to write kick ass songs.
I like this song because although people go through difficult times with their partners and their relationship, ed displays the thoughts and true feelings inside once she or he leaves.. And realising that its just the silly little things that he misses the most. This is a great song and would recommend this to anyone!
I love Ed Sheeran's lyrics, and this is the best one! It is so cute and beautiful.

How is this only 13? I love this song!
One of my favourite quotes of his! "And I don't waves of missing you anymore, they're more like tsunami tides" Ed is amazing!

12One Night
He's such a clever lyricist and this song is just a perfect example of that.
It's a shame this song didn't get as much coverage as the others. Its awesome!
His best song, and that's a bold statement seeing as how all his songs are just perfection, Ed is a musical genius and he might as well be one of the greatest singer song writers of our time
This song has so much love in it... So many emotions filled in it... It's just amazing! Absolutely wonderful! And it shows how much a girl can be loved and that guys don't just use them all for sex but can actually love them and through this song it shows how you can show your love through the tiniest and simplest of things.

13Cold Coffee
Literally my favorite song ever! :) It's absolutely lovely, I only wish I could see him sing this live one day, Ed is truly an inspiration
I can't go about my day without listening to this songs twice in a row. Although its a number 13, it deserves to be in the top five. Truly AMAZING song. :) Its very calming and relaxing too
I believe this is Ed's best composition. Great Lyrics and commercial music that pleases the ear. Great easy listening to harmonic progressions!

This one is SO good, I absolutely love Ed and all his songs but this one is very particular... I can't believe it's not higher! Probably because less people know it since it's only in a former EP or the deluxe edition of +... But anyway, go listen to it guys!
Love it! I don't care if this is "poor comment quality" the song is good and that's all that matters!
It's such an amazing song. It should deserve to be the best song of Ed Sheeran. He's so amazing! He sings so good and writes bloody awesome lyrics!

My favorite song of all time, this shall be my wedding song! I love it so much, ed sheeran is such a talented guy! My idol of all time!
ONE OF MY ABSOLUTE FAVORITES OF HIS. This song is amazing and his voice is perfection. The lyrics have so much meaning.
THIS SONG IS PERFECTION. I cannot even describe my feelings.

18Be Like You
I love this song(this describes maybe 60% of the girls at my school)especially when he says "I'll stop eating food" and "Darling don't be nervous" and "I did this on purpose" because it means so much to me and I'm glad someone else understands what my friends are going through.
It's such a nice song with very peculiar chorus lyrics. The whole songs just seems so 'Ed Sheeran'. It tires together well.

19Little Bird
Beautifully written
Absolutely love the song and him
It definitely should be higher than 14.
Such a sweet song...
The song has a nice tune with lovely lyrics. It has many beats that really tie in well together.
This song feels like the beginning of Spring. Imagine the first warm sunny day after a long Winter, this song captures it perfectly.
Super easy to listen to, sweet sweet lyrics, and really nice rhythm. Love it!

20Little Things
Little Things tells a girl she is beautiful no matter what. I think that's why everyone I know loves this song. The first couple of times I heard this song I cried. It's so emotional but amazing.
It gives confidence to a girl, which makes it my favourite.
I absolutely LOVE the song! I think this should be first!

21Wayfaring Stranger
This is my newest favorite song for Ed Sheeran, this song may be old but I still LOVE IT! Its very awesome, My first time to see him beatbox, and sing in a very high tune. This song is very amazing
This song is just wonderful, it let's his choir boy self shine through however it doesn't comprimise his fresh edge. I LOVE YOU ED!
It is just an amazintg song iloved sheeran I could just listen to it all day everyday. The way he layers the lryics and everything is just amazing and it is beautifully writen

22All of the Stars
This beautiful piece is what made me read the book. I was thinking that perhaps I could understand the song better if I read it. Almost cried when I first listen to it (also the first time I watched the video). So many feels, so many emotions from this song. Ed Sheeran is absolutely AMAZING!
I cry every time I hear this song, it's so beautiful, always reminds me of Hazel and Gus. He really did a great job with this song.
Ed Sheeran is a musical genius. He writes lyrics beautifully. I must say his songs are what rules my playlist and this song is on repeat all day all night.

23Skinny Love
This song has three versions and ed makes his so different and refreshing. Well done to Bon Iver for creating the great song as well
It's really different from the other versions.. Cool and emphasizes the meaning of the lyrics

27! R you guys serious? I'm sure most of you hadn't heard this song..

Actually I can't really set up a top 10 list of Ed's songs because I LOVE about 25 of his songs, but this one definitely would be in my top 10
It's lyrics are amazing! I love the calmness of it, yet it is still quite of fast paced.
This song instantly hooked me. Lyrics are fantastic!

27Gold Rush
Definitely one of the most underrated of his songs. Gold rush has an upbeat vibe to it and after first listen you would think it was a number one hit. Give it a listen, you wont regret it.
This song is amazing and actually my favorite of Ed's, it should be higher up on the list!
This song is really up beat and catchy. My favorite Ed Sheeran song but its often forgotten. It should be way higher.

28The Parting Glass
His voice is too incredibly beautiful singing this song. I can't even put into words how amazing this song is.
His voice sounds great singing it and it truely shows that he appreciates where he comes from and his cuture.
So beautiful! Can't put it into words how beautiful this song is

29Quiet Ballad of Ed
This is an amazing, beautiful song. It means a lot to me and so many people, but not many fans have ever heard it. But it deserves to be in the list of his best songs.
This is the most beautiful and inspiring song I've ever heard, and it's not ranked higher because nobody knows about it. Go check it out.

33So In Love
First played at Ed's first gig at Madison Square Garden. Amazing. I'M SO IN LOVE WITH THIS SONG!
Tenerife Sea is amazing. Just makes me wanna fall in love

34Miss You
I love this song so much! I've played it like... I dunno a Million times at the most! I love the lyrics, it really describes how it feels when you miss someone so badly. How is this only number 25? It deserves be number one. Ed should totally put it on his next album or EP. Loads of fans haven't heard this song even though it's one of his best in my opinion.
I love this song its cute and I have only listened to it 5 times and it is honestly my favourite song at the time~! Its such a great song by Ed Sheeran! I love him forever! Very Pround of him! 5 star song by Ed Sheeran once again!
This is such a great song Ed Sheeran is like the god of his genre of music well done! I love you Ed Sheeran! (: You Rock!

40Where We Land
This is my favourite Ed Sheeran song, it is exquisitely beautiful song, s that is filled with great amounts of emotion in it. It is a song that portrays love, in a great manner. The female vocals that also play a part in the songs make it even more so wonderful through its unison. And amazing, I might possibly even say one of my favourite songs! Adore this songs so much.

Everything about this song is amazing. The beat, the lyrics, just like all of his other songs. But this one is just so.. I don't even know how to put it into words, it is just truly amazing.

Guaranteed to be top soon. This song has a catchy beat, Ed's irresistible accent and a lot of emotion displayed. It tells such a sad story about a relationship that went wrong because of loss of commitment.
Best song ever by Ed Sheeran.

So beautiful. He wrote it for a friend with cancer. I wish more people knew of this song, as well as These Dreams. They're both underrated because they aren't recorded they're both amazing.

54Goodbye to You
One of the most beautiful songs I've ever heard. It took my awhile to understand what it meant, but once I did, I actually started crying. It's one of those songs that you can listen on repeat for a long time. It should be much higher up, but not many people know about it.
