Getting Through The Boxing Day Blues

Christmas is sadly over and I know I for one am starting to suffer from the boxing day blues, i.e realising Christmas is 12 months away and being way too full to actually do anything productive.  I don’t think I can even look at food ever again after yesterday. I remember this time last year they made us come into work at my part time job, and I could barely move cause of the amount I’d consumed the day before. Luckily there was a staff to customer ratio of about 50:1 which meant it was easier, well easier than usual, to hide away. So today to get me through I’ve been having a bit of an Ed Sheeran-athon. Interesting fact which I discovered about a year ago, apparently his video of the song A team was made on a budget of somewhere between £10-30, which according to google is between $16-48.Whether it’s true or not I’m not sure.

Ed Sheeran is one of the few artists who I will put everything on hold for whenever his songs come on. Whenever I hear his voice, it manages to bring different emotions out of me. He’s a natural story teller and I think this is one of the things that’s made him so successful. You can feel the hurt in his songs which somehow feels way beyond his years. At the same time he manages to bring forward the issues that today’s younger generation are facing. Emotions that are sometimes overlooked, but even the youth are capable of feeling. He believes in what he sings and that’s something that many singers today have lost. He’s real and has this raw essence that I hope as he becomes even more successful he doesn’t lose.  I feel that this acoustic video of his song “Give Me Love” helps convey that way better than I could! Also make sure to check out Mark Waters, the film maker who filmed the above video on his website http://markwatersfilm.com/!
