Wish You Were Here.

Now...for those of you who watched the Olympic Closing Ceremony (basically the saddest day of my life cause I now have no excuse for watching tv for hours at a time), I'm sure you'll all have seen Ed Sheeran perform Pink Floyd's 'Wish You Were Here'. You would probably have had one of three reactions:
1.Where does this song even come from?
2.He's brilliant. He can make anything sound great cause he is a ginger Jesus.
3.No one can sing that quite like Pink Floyd.

I am largely in support of number 3. Don't get me wrong, I really do love me some Ed and he is wonderfully talented and amazing with a guitar, but even though I thought his version was pretty cool when I watched it, going back and listening to the original made me think twice!

What do you think? Ed or Floyd?

This version is decidedly even better than the studio version.

That being said, I think it would be pretty awesome if Ed did a studio cover of the song - I'm sure he'd do a damn good job.
