English singer-songwriter, Edward Christopher Sheeran MBE came through with this love song he labeled “Thinking Out Loud”.
“Thinking Out Loud” is Sheeran’s smash hit about lifelong love. Though he was just 23 when he wrote it, he imagines the love lasting well into his later years.
The message resonated with fans, and it shattered several records—it was the first song to spend a full year in the UK Top 40, and the first song to reach 500 million streams on Spotify (the service also deemed it the top “first dance” song in the world).
Sheeran wrote the song about his then-girlfriend Athina Andrelos. He calls it the only happy song on the album x, on which he strived for a more serious vibe, working extensively with Rick Rubin.
Sheeran co-wrote “Thinking Out Loud” with Welsh folk singer Amy Wadge, and his friend and long-time collaborator Jake Gosling produced the track. Chris Leonard engineered it, and played guitar.
Finally, the song was officially released on June 23, 2014.
When your legs don’t work like they used to before
And I can’t sweep you off of your feet
Will your mouth still remember the taste of my love?
Will your eyes still smile from your cheeks?
And darling, I will be loving you till we’re seventy
And baby, my heart could still fall as hard at twenty-three
And I’m thinking ’bout how
People fall in love in mysterious ways
Maybe just the touch of a hand
Well me, I fall in love with you every single day
I just wanna tell you I am
