There are so many ways I could talk about beauty in this particular post. Music, people, actions, words, paintings, films. How do I choose just one?

I think I’ll cheat. I think I’m going to choose a music video by one of my favourite artists. Ed Sheeran. I love him. I think his music is heart-warming, or heart-wrenching depending on your mood. I think his lyrics are impeccable. And I think his music videos are some of the very few in mainstream media that tell stories.
“Thinking Out Loud” is one of my favourite songs. It is a love song about the longevity of love, not just that intense first rush. It’s about wanting to spend your life with someone for the little things, not just because you’re caught up in the vividness of youth (I say as a twenty-five year old haha).

I implore you to watch this video. Sheeran has a thing for the show Strictly Ballroom and so guess what he got to do in this clip? He got to dance. The dancing plus the story of the lyrics and the curlicues of the melody makes this music video, in my eyes, exquisite.

About Bec Graham

Bec Graham, 24, was born on the wrong continent. Everything from her burns-like-paper skin tone to her inability to cope with the slightest hint of a hot day suggests she should have been born under the gloomy skies and mild sun of the UK. She hopes writing will get her to her rightful home one day. Failing that, she scans the skies for a spinning blue police box, hoping to catch a lift back to the motherland.
