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

Love it! - TheFourthWorld

3 Lego 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.

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

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

4 Thinking 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!

Ed is such an amazing talent. I am so glad that I have lived long enough to enjoy such a gifted artist. His lyrics are not only thought provoking but can carry you right into the story and can touch the lives of so many that can see themselves as a person that has been involved in many of the story lines. Thinking Out Loud has a special meaning to be since I am 70 and I have lived through everything the song is about. I hope all of you can live as long and 1 day look back on this song and have it bring out the same type emotions I feel when I listen to it.

The story behind this song is amazing. Plus, his vocals are so raw and strong. I am just in love

The first ever song I heard of ed sheeran. I love it so much. I think its one of the best songs of ed sheeran. For those who haven't heard this song please listen to it, it's amazing!

5 Photograph

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.

This song is so amazing because it explains that when you love someone, no matter how far they are they will always be in your heart and you will always remember them, even if they can't be with you time will never erase your memories and that's what you can hold on to when you miss them and you feel like you can't bear it anymore.

I don't really know the other songs and this was the first song I knew well so I voted for it

6 Kiss 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.

I think this is one of Ed's more touching songs. I love it

7 I 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. - wolphert

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

This song is very good

8 You 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.

If any of you think Ed doesn't sing fast, think again! This song is very up beat and is really fun to sing along with. The lyrics are amazing and I can't stop listening to it! It's very trendy, it's worth the money if you purchase it on iTunes

I don't think it is

9 Drunk

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

This song right behind U.N.I. is my second favorite of his. the bridge alone is phenomenal.

10 Don't

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.

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

My all time favorite song out of a long list of favorites by Ed Sheeran. He has the ability to make sure that you have to stop and listen to the words of any song he sings. I love many different types of music but he is my favorite artist right now. Don't is the epitome of how I felt at the end of a bad relationship. It may be personalized to him but it has the ability to be relatable to the "I was cheated on" situation. Please vote Debby R.

I love this song because of the savageness at getting back at someone. I just love angry songs in general because there’s so much emotion in them. I mean, the anger made him finally swear!

The Contenders

11 Wake 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!

Best lyrics

I love this song... Just love it.

13 Autumn Leaves

Words can't describe my move for this song. It is so sad and beautifully written. Thank you Ed Sheeran.

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!

Got no words to describe the song. It is just out of this world. Ed you the best

This should be right behind Give me love.

15 Castle on the Hill

The lyrics bring you into the place where he's trying to visit, making you homesick for a place you've never even been to, and probably will never go to; but you can think of it in some way relating to your home town.

Ed comes back with an absolute bang with this perfect masterpiece. Amazing vocals, incredible music, awesome lyrics, just overall perfect. - nightvisions

This song will go down as an absolute ed sheeran classic, beats the pants off shape of you any time

16 Sing

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.

Great song. I love the different type of techniques used in the music and beats. simply awesome!

This song is just insanely amazing! Gets me hooked.

17 Cold Coffee

This is my absolute favorite song. The feels for this song is too real. The emotion that Ed pours into this song is felt throughout the speaker. Singing about pleading for a way to try to save a relationship, asking is counterpart what he can do to make her happy and love him again "tell me how to fall in love the way you want me too." This song so under appreciated but although this being a rather sad sing I can't help but feel butterflies every single time I play it. This song should have definitely been top five on this list.

This is just one of the most authentic songs I've ever heard. Even from the first time I heard this song, I felt that special "warmth" that Ed's songs give. Really love how his acoustic style can give so much peace to your mind yet overpower you with an urgency that stirs your blood with so many colors and emotions. Like each note doesn't strike as simply a note, but rather a shade, a feeling, a comfort. His songwriting is very accessible and that's what I find very enjoyable, the realism and connection that is in his voice and music.

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

Raw and absolutely touching

18 U.N.I.

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!

I absolutely love this song it should be higher up on the list in my opinion.

Yayy it's very good

This song is beautifully written and is one of my favorites from Ed. Deserves to be in the top 10!

It's a perfect song

20 Shape of You

Its one of the most catchiest songs ever

Not a bad song, but compared to Don't, Photograph, The A Team, Thinking Out Loud and Supermarket Flowers (My favorites), It doesn't stand a chance. - JamesBourne

Seriously no.23? This was one of the top most song for more than 20 weeks...This was one of the best song I ever heard..Great lyrics, awesome music!

One of the most overrated songs of all time!

21 All 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!

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

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.

This song is not just a song
Its an emotion!
Whenever I listen this emotion it makes me feel like my love of the life has left me and gone very far
I can't get enough of this song
You guys should move it up at no. 2 even on no. 1
And in the future I'm definitely gonna sing this song and upload my version on YouTube

22 One 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!

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.

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

23 Galway Girl

All of the Irish-ness in this song makes me way too happy.

Best Ed Sheeran song! Deserves #1 spot! The music is so groovy... Lyrics is too good. He's nailed it with this singing!

I love Galway Girl! It is my #1 Ed Sheeran song. It shouldn't be #53. I say it should be #1.

It shoul be number 1

24 Afire Love

The whole album is just amazing, I cried when I listened to this song. I just absolutely love it.

I'm really surprised how its #30 on this list. This is not just my favorite ed sheeran song, its actually my all time favorite song. Everything about this song is just perfect. The lyrics, his voice, the music, the way he pours his heart and soul into this song. Words can't really discribe how much I love this song. And no matter how many times I listen to it, I'm never really gonna get enough of it.

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.

Absolutely astonishing - Hater

25 I'm a Mess

By far my favorite song of x, grabs you from the beginning, I love how the song is growing little by little and the way in which the vocal range extends. Simply amazing

Ed Sheeran really should've released this as a single. It's underrated and just an amazing song.

This song is so terrific I could blast it on my headphones all day

Magnificent song to be honest

26 Be 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.

This song deserves more recognition, easily one of Ed's best work, lyrics have a very deep meaning and it's a very catchy tune, listen to it right now!

It's such a nice song with very peculiar chorus lyrics. The whole songs just seems so 'Ed Sheeran'. It tires together well.

Amazing song

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.

Aww this is a lovely song about heartbreak...

28 One

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..

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.

I love this song so much, can't wait to here the released version

Most underrated Ed Sheeran song. Heartfelt, emotional and honest. Love this.

29 Supermarket Flowers

I'm not saying that this is Ed's best song, but I just can't stand seeing it being rated 27... The first time I heard this one I was sitting in class, and every time he got to the first chorus I started sobbing. Since I didn't want to cry in class I had to pause and try again to keep my emotions in check, gave up after the fifth attempt. I'm getting off track here but the point is that this song is just so absolutely gorgeous and it should be treated as such.

The sadness of the song, and the lyrics, are something that can relate to and is really good if you are in to sad songs

I'm not saying that for me, personally, this is Ed's best song so far, but that's exactly what I'm saying.

So sad...his best

Best song ever!


31 Wonderwall

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

Wonderwall is a classic! For a lot of people, this was the first song they could play on guitar. SO elegant:) Perfect by Ed Sheeran

32 Wayfaring Stranger

Gosh, the list of people who have done this song is so long and varied. It's such a credit to Ed that, at his age, he's even heard of this song much less done his own version of it. I kind of like it done in more of a folk version myself, but I will give Ed credit for presenting it in a different light. It brings a whole new audience to artists like Emmylou Harris, John Gorka, and others who have done this song. This song tells you that Ed's influences are wide and varied.

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!

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!

"should this be the last thing I see, I want you to know it's enough for me. Cause all that you are is all that I'll ever need" are by far some of the most beautiful lyrics I have ever heard in my life.

Amazing little known song on his latest album, X. Very beautifully written and played. Good job Ed.

The most beautiful, simple love song ever written...

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.

I'm one of his biggest fans and this is one of my favourite

36 Bloodstream

This is an edgy, high energy song about a guy coping with a lost love by using hallucinogens. In his altered state, he is not aware of when the drug has taken effect--thus the call for someone to " tell me when it kicks in." The song desperately needs a remix as the album version with all the soft instrumental adds of the studio lost the energy of Ed's live version with the loop pedal. Listen to the 2015 BRIT Awards Show version. Mesmerizing!.

I don't really understand the meaning of this song. But it doesn't matter. Hear it once and you will know its amazing. Ed sheeran shows once again just how powerful his voice is. This should at least be in his top 20

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

An incredible tune. The voice of Ed combines really well with the lyrics and instrumental. The Rudimental Remix is even better - Hater

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!

This song brings me to tears, one of eds best

39 Quiet Ballad of Ed

It pains me to know that not many people have heard of this song. This song is so encouraging, and it helped me through a lot. This song paints a picture of horrible darkness, and then washes that scene away with the line, "I'm doing better." This song helped me through my battles with depression and anxiety. I truly love this song.

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.

40 Billy Ruskin

Very different than his usual

41 Skinny 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

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!

44 Gold 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!

Why is this way down here? I love this song to pieces!

Oh my god, 59, that is absolutely ridiculous. Ed sheeran is not only an amazing singer, but in this song, he truly demonstrates his amazing ability to rap, and he truly has the sickest flow.

This is my second favourite Ed Sheeran song it's so personal and realistic

He"s got the mojo here! Blue eyed soul bro
