Uno de los artistas más importantes de la historia musical de los últimos tiempos, y, claro, del Reino Unido, no puede pararse. Por eso, hemos ido relatando cómo, hasta en vacaciones, y en JapónEd Sheeran se subía a escenarios o acudía a un karaoke.

Hoy en un nuevo capítulo de una película que podríamos llamar "Nunca Desaparecidos" el pelirrojo más especial de la música ha ido a su desván y ha encontrado una grabación en "analógico" de uno de los temas que le han llevado hasta lo más grande; tras recorrer muchos kilómetros de música.

Se trata de la canción "You Need Me" que, por él y hoy, descubrimos que nacía en el año 2007 cuando teníamos documentado que era un tema musical de 2011.

Tal y como nos cuenta Ed Sheeran "encontré una vieja grabadora analógica con la primera 'demo' de You Need Me de 2007 hoy, es extraño escucharlo pero es genial al mismo tiempo. Pensé en compartir esta grabación que llega desde la 'hibernación'". Ahora podemos escuchar cómo sonaba en ese año 2007 y cómo lo hacía en el estreno. 

Pero...

lo que más nos gusta es que él, Ed, dice "...nos vemos". Y eso es mucho.

Así suena el tema grabado en 2007

Esta es la versión de 2011

"You Need Me, I Don't Need You" o, como la hemos conocido muchos por "You Need Me" llegaba como segundo single de su primer álbum de estudio, "+" y que conocíamos el 19 de julio de 2011 también con este videoclip oficial:

Letra by lyricfind

Now I'm in town, break it down, thinking of making a new sound
Playing a different show every night in front of a new crowd
That's you now, ciao, seems that life is great now
See me lose focus, as I sing to you loud
And I can't, no, I won't hush
I'll say the words that make you blush
I'm gonna sing this now

See, I'm true, my songs are where my heart is
I'm like glue, I stick to other artists
I'm not you, now that would be disastrous
Let me sing and do my thing and move to greener pastures
See, I'm real, I do it all, it's all me
I'm not fake, don't ever call me lazy
I won't stay put, give me the chance to be free
Suffolk sadly seems to sort of suffocate me

'Cause you need me, man, I don't need you
You need me man, I don't need you
You need me man, I don't need you at all
You need me man, I don't need you

You need me man, I don't need you
You need me man, I don't need you
You need me man, I don't need you at all
You need me

I sing and write my own tune
And I write my own verso
Don't need another word-smith to make my tune sell
Call yourself a singer-writer. You're just bluffing
Your name's on the credits and you didn't write nothing
I sing fast, I know that all my shit's cool
I will blast and I didn't go to Brit School
I came fast with the way I act, right
I can't last if I'm smoking on a crack pipe

And I won't be a product of my genre
My mind will always be stronger than my songs are
Never believe the bullshit that fake guys feed to ya
Always read the stories that you hear on Wikipedia
And musically I'm demonstrating
When I perform live, feels like I am meditating
Times at the Enterprise when some fella filmed me
'A young singer-writer like Gabriella Cilmi'

'Cause you need me, man, I don't need you
You need me, man, I don't need you
You need me, man, I don't need you, at all
You need me, man, I don't need you

You need me, man, I don't need you
You need me, man, I don't need you
You need me, man, I don't need you, at all
You need me

'Cause with the lyrics I'll be aiming it right
I won't stop till my name's in light
At Stadium Heights with Damien Rice
On red carpets, now I'm on arabian nights
Because I'm young and all my brothers gonna give me advice
Long nighter, short height and I'm gone hyper

Never be anything but a singer-songwriter
The games over but now I'm on a new level
Watch how I step on the track without a loop pedal

People think that I'm bound to blow up
I've done around about a thousand shows
But I haven't got a house plus I live on the couch
So you can be the lyrics when I'm singing them out (wow)

From day one, I've been prepared
With V05 wax for my ginger hair
So now I'm back to the sofa giving a dose of what the future holds
'Cause it's another day plus I'll keep my last name forever keep the genre pretty basic
Gonna be breaking into other people's tunes when I chase it
And replace it with the elephant in the room with a facelift
Into another rappers shoes using new laces
Selling cds from my rucksack aiming for the papers
Selling cds from my rucksack aiming for majors
Nationwide til' we're just jack, soon as I get the bus back

Clean cut kid without a razor for the mustache
I hit back when the pen hurts me
I'm still a choir boy in a French church tee
I'm still the same as a year ago
But more people hear me though
According to the myspace and youtube videos
I'm always doing shows, if I'm not I'm in the studio
Truly broke, never growing up call me Ruffio
Melody music maker
Reading all the papers
They say I'm up and coming like I'm fucking in an elevator

'Cause you need me, man, I don't need you
You need me, man, I don't need you
You need me, man, I don't need you, at all
You need me, man, I don't need you

You need me, man, I don't need you
You need me, man, I don't need you
You need me, man, I don't need you, at all
You need me, man, I don't need you

Por supuesto, dejamos abierta la cierta polémica de la intervención de Ed Sheeran en una película de la "La guerra de las galaxias" pero eso es otra historia muy muy muy lejana.
