Personal note: I would have loved to have used a picture of Ed Sheeran but I can’t because there are too many copyright issues. If I ‘borrowed’ a picture from Ed’s website I would get hit with charge of hundreds of pounds by the copyright holder.

Whilst I hate artists bickering over copyright claims I have to say that the two songs are very similar and I’d be amazed if Ed hadn’t been at least influenced by Marvin Gaye’s song.
