Best Ed Sheeran Songs


The Top Ten

1 The 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

My first Ed song and my favourite one.

2 Give Me Love

Honestly this is my favorite song. Ed Sheeran's voice says it all, and this song is truly heartbreaking.

This is my favorite song of his! Really catchy and beautiful at the same time :) Should be number one!

The most amazing song out there!
A magnificent Voice...

The sound of this song alone is already a reason to regard it as one of the most beautiful songs ever written. On examination of the lyrics and their deeper meaning, the listener feels his desperation and desires, through both wordplay and vocal power. The song relaxes me, filling me with a rather juxtaposing sense of both happiness and melancholy. Ed Sheeran himself has said that this is one of his favourites to perform, demonstrated by the passion in his voice and his repetitive lyrics signalling his desire for the song to continue indefinitely rather than ending.

4 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

It's so amazing it truly grows on you, though I loved it immediatly. THE MuSiC ViDEO S BOMB! ED is actually my favorite artist

This song reminds me of to characters of Death Note. I LOVE THIS!

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

No. 1 for sure for this one

Has to be number 1

I was really surprised when this song didn't win the Grammy's.

6 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.

I listen to this song on repeat OVER and OVER and OVER again I love this song and it also got me into Lord of the Rings and the Hobbit

Awesome and stunning.

Man the riff is sick

7 Castle on the Hill

Lyrically and also based upon the overall sound, this may be his best song. Or at least his best song off of his Divide album. - m_law123

The imagery of the sweet perfume of the mountain grass reminds me of vacations I spent in the Swiss mountains, and it makes me cry every time. Maybe I have a prejudice based on memories from when I was younger, but I sure as heck can still vote for it. This song is amazing.

Best nostalgic song

My personal favourite of all Ed's songs bringing back happy memories of carefree days spent with my mates as a youngster growing up in the sixties and seventies. Some of those friends have sadly since passed on but that just makes this song and the memories it evokes even more poignant to me. Thanks Ed. You are a great songwriter.

8 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!

So sweet

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.

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

10 Perfect

Understandably, "Perfect" is an extremely popular song to accompany the 1st dance of the bride and groom at weddings. It's a beautiful song and should be #1.

I love this perfect song and it is for everyone and every genre

Woah, woah, woah, WOAH! I think the word I would describe it is BORING! I liked it at first but then when it started playing a million times, I was like, hail nah. But on the other hand, there are a lot of overplayed songs so...

Just as you can feel the heaven it is totally a mind

Come on, this one.

When I watched him live, this was THE SONG! me and my mum were really going for it, I know every word! very underrated

This song is the best song in my opinion. The live version is what got me into listen to his music. A very unique song and fun to listen, not even how badass the name of the song is

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!

14 Don't

I don't understand how this got rated lower than the others! This is one of the most amazing songs I have ever heard! This song is one of the best it deserves to be at least top three. I love it so much it is my second favorite song of ed sheeran, it is so awesome. Please vote for 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.

Great song

I don’t really like Ed Sheeran, but I sure like this song!

15 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.

Love this song so much!

Simple but good

Brings me to another world

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!

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

I can't go about my day without listening to this songs twice in a row. Although it's a number 13, it deserves to be in the top five. Truly AMAZING song. :) Its very calming and relaxing too

18 Small Bump

This song came out when I was going through hell with the loss of my twins, I had just lost my husband and my 5-year-old was not with us when we got hit by a drunk driver... I was 6 months along and ended up losing my twins and husband and this song got me threw allot allowing myself to remember that they were all together in heaven when I got there and tell that day comes I was needed here to raise our son who was still here on earth. Thank you for helping me through that hard time
from your fan in Utah, USA

Great emotional song

Such a sad story, but beautiful story

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

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

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

This is awesome. I love it because I'm Irish

Love it and can't believe that I hadn't heard it until just recently

Can't get enough of this song. Love it so much. An edgy and high energy song, love especially the live versions.

I love this song. It is one of my favourites! Thanks Ed Sheeran. How is this not in the top 10

The music is just fantastic, and emersive, and pulls you into a trance and is both anxious and calming in it's entirety

21 All of the Stars

Yea. U will knw the meaning of this song if you've watched TFIOS!

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.

22 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!

This is a truly beautiful song which expresses such exquisite and beautiful feelings. Passionate. I love this song very much. It deserves to be #1. This song specifically, particularly conveys the heartfelt and sincere feeling everyone would want to hear. Ed Sheeran, you're the man!

Exceptional song. Exceptional

Full of emotion lyrics were amazing the story make me cry

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

The way he plays this live takes you makes it so easy the event of this song playing out, he just plays with such love and care painting a beautiful picture in my mind of a boy falling in love at first site.


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.

27 Be Like You

Great song, one of my favourites by far!

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!

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.

"Everything changes but we'll be strangers if we see this through"

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.

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

It's just a great song and it's so catchy, I just leave it on repeat all the time

35 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.

36 Sunburn

The most underrated Ed Sheeran song.

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 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.

Grade 8 has a great beat and it's really catchy. It's my favorite song by him. I love it.

39 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!

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

40 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

Its just so amazing! I'm actually surprised that he's not brought this one out yet!

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!

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.

Definitely one of Ed's Better Songs. Beats out Wake Me Up for sure. Lyrics are on point and the melody is sweet.

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!

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!

This song made girls stop cutting themselves, so it has to be number one!
