Redhead rule of life: Never fail to celebrate the success of a fellow redhead.
Celebrating: Ed Sheeran.
This fellow redhead gained my affections when he performed at the Grammys with none other than Sir Elton John himself (talk about a stage full of my talented brethren). Ed Sheeran’s name came to mind the other day and I realized I hadn’t listened to his music for awhile. I know, I’m embarrassing and ashamed of myself as not only a person, but also as a redhead.
“I See Fire” became a song I could listen to with ease. Granted, any song by Ed Sheeran melts away any stresses I may have had but the simplicity of his voice, the guitar and the violin here are soothing. It is also important to note that Sheeran plays all of these instruments in the video. How refreshing!
The song was written for “The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug,” set to hit theaters on December 13. I apologize for my ignorance but I’m not well versed in the Lord of the Rings or The Hobbit craze, so I can’t speak to the meaning of this song for the purpose of the movie. I’ve only seen part of one of the movies and have survived thus far.
I can, however, note that if I ever have to go into a fantasy-ridden battle, I will count on this successful ginger to serenade me the whole way through.
