    I heard Galway Girl yesterday when I was on hold to EE. It's fucking terrible, I actually thought it was a pisstake. I thought he was fucking shite before but Jesus!

    I hate that generic Irish flute stock preset sound in this song, it's just so fucking clichéd :mad:

    Sounds like he borrowed it from B*Witched. What a dick.

    The second I hear that casio keyboard fake xylophone noise from the start of 'shape of you' my arsehole clenches up in fury. The man must be a billionaire by now can he not spring for a producer to make his sad little wank fantasies at least sound like they were recorded by an adult?

    Another one of those singers they have now who don't seem to be able to open their fucking mouths properly when they sing, like Lily Allen. Like "I'm too cool to properly enunciate"

    Oh God, this is such a reflection of my grandma complaining she disliked Mick Jagger because he opens his mouth too wide when he sings :D

    You mean the WHISTLE playing of Brian Finnegan? One of the finest players of whisle, low whistle, fife and flute that Ireland has ever produced?

    THIS Brian Finnegan?

    or this absolutely stunning one on a fife/marching flute(!) from when he was a nipper with a decidedly dodgy hair cut.

    I would respectfully suggest a) You are both 'listening' with prejudice and b) talking out of your hole(s).

    I have no doubt Beoga are a touch bewildered by both the media reaction (and the over production?) but as it is all helping make trad/crossover music 'cool' for millions of kids who would not have listened to it before, it'll do for me.

    The Chieftains never made any real money till they did their crossover albums. Hope Beoga - excellent musicians and universally regarded as very sound skins - reap the same benefits and the likes of my own kids share in it too. .

    It sounds fucking horrible on the track, it's an awful song. I'd much rather hear the whistle unsullied by Ed fucking Sheeran.

    He could dig up Beethoven to play piano on one of his dreary pieces of shit and it'd still be crap because he's Ed Sheeran.

    Ripping it up at Glastonbury. Terrific performer.

    This is the single worst thing I've ever seen on my telly. It's like watching a doco about flesh eating spiders or a diane abbot interview though. I can't switch it off.

    But Kanye was on the other year and he was def the single worst thing ever on your telly.

    There is no way that many people have got enough charge in their phones for the torch function on day 3 of a festival.

    Don't know. I enjoyed the first half tremendously, but had to come away from the TV. Quite why you don't is a mystery only known to you, but you might as well enjoy it.

    Ed Sheeran isn't fit to lick the shit off Kanye West's shoes

    Delightfully put ignorance as we've come to expect.

    HAHAHAHA!!! :D

    You may be right, to be fair. They're both so dreadful that maybe one *is* significantly better than the other, but my limited perception loses resolution at that end of the talent spectrum. :)
  25. Orang Utan


    West has more creativity in his little finger than Sheeran - he is a lot more interesting and varied than. Way way more talented. He's Prince to Sheeran's Billy Bragg

    We are presumably taking a shrink ray to your references' talents and assuming proportionality for comparison reasons...

    Music bore's comparison. Why not try and enjoy someone's talents without having to grade and resent and be Mr ITK?

    I'm enjoying West's talents immensely.
    Who's Mr ITK?
