Ginger Busker Part 1 - Not For Me!
on 4 October 2017
Saw Ed at Glastonbury 2017 on the BBC coverage, didn't really like it but thought it might be better if I tried listening to the studio versions of his songs. I've listened to this and "X" a few times now and, although I know he has a huge number of fans, I don't get what people see in him or his music. It's just not for me. He certainly writes a huge amount of lyrics but I get bored listening to him, there's nothing very compelling in what he has to say. As for the music, well I don't get the appeal of that either, it's unremarkable and unmemorable strumming. I'm sorry to say that the "Ginger Busker" moniker is well deserved!
