No, no, hear me out.
I’m not a huge fan of Ed Sheeran’s work in general. I admit that I know only what gets played on the radio, and I admit also that I find some of his songs catchy and fun to sing along with in the car or exercise class.
However, I’m in no way a fan of hook-up culture, which I dislike with an intensity that one might fairly describe as rabid. This prevents me from enjoying his work too much.
This video of him singing “Wild Mountain Thyme,” though, kind of classes up his career more than a little.
(Even if one could argue that he’s still singing, at least a little, about the same old thing. But whatever.)
I was reminded of this Scottish folk song, which I rather like, yesterday during the closing conversations of the Moss Wood Retreat, an excellent writing retreat I attended last week and which I will give you more details about soon. (So stay tuned.)
In the meantime, do enjoy this.

I already have a Jimmy Cliff earworm this morning. Of course I know the Ed Sheeran song, it’s an old song we know also as “Will ye go, lassie, go,” and I’ve croaked it myself many times. 🙂

Yes, I’d always known it by that title too, until this week.
