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

3Lego House
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 am OBSESSED with this song! It's just a bit better than a few f the other songs in my opinion, and my friends and I find certain lyrics rather funny. The video (ft. Rupert Grint) is also pretty cool. The emotions in the song are beautiful if you listen and Ed just sounds amazing. It's such an amazing song, it melts my heart and I can never just listen to it once! I assure you, if you like Ed Sheeran, YOU WILL CHERISH THIS SONG. To me, it's nearly sacred.
[Newest]Beautiful song. It captured me attention as soon as a heard it.

4Thinking Out Loud
This song does NOT deserve such a position! What the hell is wrong with the people out here?! This song, sung by this phenomenal man just took my breath away! Ed Sheeran sings songs that make sense and really make you FEEL. I love him. This deserves to be in the top 5. Voters, PLEASE vote!
The story behind this song is amazing. Plus, his vocals are so raw and strong. I am just in love
This is such a wonderful song... And the video is breathtaking... Such wonderful feelings and emotions are thought out loud using this song
[Newest]It barely has any music but it's still an amazing song.

5Kiss 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.
[Newest]Beautiful! Best song, my heart expressed

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.


Why in the world would you think of leaving in the first place? You should always stay for the credits if you enjoy the movie.
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
[Newest]This song is really amazing! Ed sheeran is my favorite artist now thanks to this song. I have listened to it over and over again but I have not grown tired of it. Wonderful lyrics, this song is just too good I think it should be number 1

7Small Bump
Such a sad story, but beautiful story
... He is so lyrically talented
.. Just listen to the song carefully
When I 1st heard this song it almost made me cry! I love the lyrics and think he's great-so's the song
This song is so beautiful, it has so much meaning to it. It's so different from other songs these days, and I think that's an important quality to have in a great song. When I listen to this song it brings out so much emotion, I actually cry almost every time I hear it.
[Newest]I have to say I love this song it just... WOW...

8You 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
[Newest]I love this song. I still remember singin' it to my (ex) girlfriend. Such power in this song.

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
Love this song vote this one up should be number 3 or 4 amazing song should not be so low down
This song is my second favorite song! Grade 8 is my favorite
[Newest]Such a wonderful song! Ed is THE best 😉

This song gonna be on top 5 like right away. His song is too perfect. The beat & his pasion say it all in this song
This song is one of the Ed Sheeran songs I like. This is EASILY my favorite Ed Sheeran song. I don't see why this is at 12. I really like Sing too, which used this same style. I hope he takes his music in a direction more like Don't and Sing, but also keep some of the more slow, heartfelt songs.
It is great. I love the beat, the lyrics, it's just everything about it is good. And the piano part may be simple but so good and catchy. IT'S JUST AWESOME!
[Newest]Should be higher them 5

The Contenders

11Wake Me Up
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!
Its amazing so touching would like to hear more songs like this unbelieveable how he can write such good lyrics lots of love ed!
[Newest]Beautiful song. Sheeran has an angelic voice. I am in love with it

12Autumn 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!
[Newest]This song more like diary to me, amazing lyric

13Everything Has Changed
He has a great Voice. I like him
Best song. Nice, calm, harmonic, easy and chilled and laid back. Ed and taylor <3 best song by the way
Such a nice catchy melody. It's calm nice and beautiful. Best song! Love you ed
[Newest]Such a sweet duet

I can't help but dance around to it. I don't even like pop music, but the guitar is so funky and his voice sounds great up high.
This song is just insanely amazing! Gets me hooked.
Great song. I love the different type of techniques used in the music and beats. simply awesome!
[Newest]This song should be number 1 it is amazing and gets you attention.

15One 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.
[Newest]I love this song! All of his are good but this should definitely be higher

Simply the best <3 it ended over U.N. I x2 and I said that's fine caz your the only one that knows I lie xx
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!
How is this only 13? I love this song!
[Newest]How is this 16! Is my favourite ed's song

17Grade 8
Love grade 8 so much I'm always singin it laugh out loud ;P
Love this song its one of my favorites!
This song is one of Ed's best. The sound is so original and different from all of his other music. This song needs to at least be in the top 5, honestly.

18Cold 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!
[Newest]Love this song so much... love listening to it and playing it myself!

This song should seriously be in the top 3 list. It's so touching and the tune makes you cry for no reason. And don't forget the lyrics "so you can keep me inside the pocket of your ripped jeans... For me to come home" this reminds me of my current relationship and how it's slowly coming to an end and we finally end up in each other's memories and hurt in the inside and crying behind our backs:, ( I love you Ed Sheeran
Oh you can fit me inside the necklace you got when you were 16
Next to your heartbeat where I should be Keep it deep within your soul.
Wondering how this is not in the top 5.
There's a bunch of emotion in the song, His singing is awesome too, just a killer song!
[Newest]Its one of Ed Sheeran's best songs. This song deserves to be in top 5.

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!
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!
Love it! I don't care if this is "poor comment quality" the song is good and that's all that matters!
[Newest]I can't believe this is so low, it is simply too amazing! More people need to hear this.

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.

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!
This is song is just too too beautiful! How is it so down here? This is undoubtedly my most favourite Ed sheeran song! I don't tire of hearing this at all on the contrary I have been loving it more each time. So much of emotions involved and his voice is just amazing.
There are certain songs that connect with you instantly. There are some singers whose songs you can relate to completely. Ed's All of the Stars slips in seamlessly into this. And add to that Hazel's and Gus's story. There is just one word for it: MASTERPIECE
[Newest]The best ed sheeran song ever shul be number 1

23Be 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.

24Little 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.
Simply brilliant. And that's all there is to it!
It should be in the top ten, without a doubt.
[Newest]Whenever I listen to this song I remember Dark

25Little 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!
[Newest]Love this song like "HEAVEN"

It is so soothing, so beautiful. The song gives a clear illustration of the perfection in his voice. This song deserves to be among the top 10 at least.
This song puts me to sleep when I got too many things in my mind. So peaceful, so relaxing, truly beautiful. Ed's voice here really calm me down..
Such a beautiful song with masterful lyrics. It's a shame that so few people know about it.

27I'm a Mess
This song has 90 more plays than any other song I own. My favourite song love it

This song is so underrated! This is definitely my favorite song
[Newest]Very good song. I like it so much

28Wayfaring 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

29Skinny 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..
It has great beat, makes me dance every time.. Just listen 2 it once & you'll understand
Its not a homeless life for me, its just I'm home less than id like to be. Wow. What lyrics.
One of the best songs ever!
[Newest]I'm in love with this song

31Afire Love
The strings are triumphant as he reconciles himself with his granddad's death by acknowledging someone other than himself. Best way to end an album and to pay tribute to eternal love.
The whole album is just amazing, I cried when I listened to this song. I just absolutely love it.
What's this song doing down here. This is one of his best songs. It's the type of song you can play over and over again and not get tired
[Newest]This is such a beautiful song! This deserves to be in the top tens

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!

This song is amazing! I don't know a lot of the songs that are higher on the list, and yet a lot of the good ones are down here!
By far this song should be in the top ten, has no one ever listened to this song before what
Yes guys go nina

34Gold 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 really up beat and catchy. My favorite Ed Sheeran song but its often forgotten. It should be way higher.
This song is amazing and actually my favorite of Ed's, it should be higher up on the list!
[Newest]Why is this way down here? I love this song to pieces!

35The Parting Glass
Ed absolutely nailed a typical Irish folk song. My heart always brims with emotions after listening to this song.
His voice is too incredibly beautiful singing this song. I can't even put into words how amazing this song is.
So beautiful! Can't put it into words how beautiful this song is

36Tenerife Sea
You look so wonderful in your dress/ I love your hair like that/ the way it falls on the side of your neck/ down your shoulders and back... AMAZING!
Amazing little known song on his latest album, X. Very beautifully written and played. Good job Ed.
Beautiful song, great lyrics, inspiring guitar, I just love it.
[Newest]Excellent! I just love ed's voice

37The City
Can't believe that this isn't higher on the list! The beatboxing in this song really makes it... Not to mention the awesome chorus. The whole thing is just awesome!
This is my absolute favorite song ever!
The beat to this song is amazing👌💕

38Quiet 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.

39Billy Ruskin

Only Ed Sheeran can make staying on a sofa sound better then traveling the world. Just an amazing song.
Same concept as lazy song by Bruno mars only 1000 times better!
WE CAN FLY TO Berlin Tokyo OR Jamaica

41So In Love
I heard this song when the fourth year is practicing their prom, yes this is the song to their prom and I knew that when I heard the voice it was definitely Ed Sheeran. I love his voice and I love the lyrics that he writes.
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

42Little Lady
It's so real. I had goosebumps the entire time. That's how you know something is wonderful, when you get goosebumps and you can tell it's heartfelt.
The message behind this song is just so raw and holds such truth it was surreal to listen to. Beautiful lyrics and song

43Miss 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!

44Yellow Pages
Yellow pages to me is the best. This song inspired my great friend and I to write songs just like this. Because of this song we were also inspired to take on the x factor. Yellow pages rock!
Not bad at all... You did a great job...

Technically its not his song but it sound much different to Oasis' original. I love the guitar in it and his voice is so beautiful

48Where 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.

This song is so amazing, it talks about how he had problems at home but he would always accept his dad. Of course he would leave bit always love him and when his dad changed he would be back.
A reflection of conflicting emotions with the nostalgic voice of Ed Sheeran
This has recently become my favourite song and the more I listen to it the more I love it. I just feel connected to it

He has such a beautiful voice...
His voice just amazes me and without his addition the song would be incomplete
Wow not just my favorite Ed Sheeran song but my favorite song overall

53You Break Me
This is one of my absolute favorite songs ever! I could listen to it on repeat for the rest of my life. It's so beautiful, especially considering how young he was at the time.

54Even My Dad Does Sometimes
God this is my favorite song ever "so don't wipe your eyes, tears remind you your alive" this lyrics touch me because I've had some depressing thoughts and this song saved me to be honest.
This song has so much meaning I love it ❤️

55The Man
Ideal! Only those whose relationships have been ruined like this can understand the pain present in this song.
The most honest and open song on his new album. Definitely deserves to be higher on the list!
You can just feel the emotion when you listen to it. My favorite song on the album.
[Newest]A whole new style of music!

56Hold On
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.
What is dis song doing here? Dis song is so amazing.. Touching, makes me think about life.. Slow n cool.. Sud be among d top 5 please vote

57Goodbye 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.
Can't believe that this song wasn't even on the list! Love this song so much!

What? How is this not number 1? This is probably my favorite song by him, he puts so much emotion into it. Oh, and his live performance of this at the Brits
Definitely should be among top ten... Awesome song... Lord forgive me for the things I have done
