Ed Sheeran, 563,132,637; Eden and Shea, 70



Obviously the original version by the British superstar is better, but the two young people from New York deserve to be heard, too. Hopefully their version — especially IF THEY RE-RECORD IT — will hit 10,000 views before Ed’s hits 600M.

I’ve been in the music business for 25 years now — and in the human being body thing  for more than 50 — and one of my themes is that the industry distorts the differnce between what they back and what is merely part of the community (i.e. organic, independt, amateur in the sense of “love”). Ed’s version is better than Eden’s, but not 80 millon times better. Maybe it’s twice as good. But she’s on the come.

(I don’t know Eden Arielle Gordon but found her surfing the internet — so there is an inconsistency in my argument in that the forces that propel Ed to 500M viewers also help me meet — by phone and email — Eden).

Eden Arielle Gordon is sometimes the performer known as Eden Arielle.

The Ed Sheeran video also had the added draw of the skinny blond lady pulling feathers out of her epidermis and a special made to order set of even more anthropomorphic artists’ dolls:


which reminds me that I left a vm for James Moore because the Post today had a picture of a blue sculpture of a man holding a ball, which looks like the James Moore Bill Bliss bike tribute public art

edit to add, in March: Eden and bro are up to 81 views, or 14 percent increase. Ed is up to 573K, another 10K, but that’s only 2 percent: so Eden is gaining at a higher rate!
