Ed Sheeran, cover di Master Blaster di Stevie Wonder per Capodanno 2015 (Video e testo)

Il cantautore inglese si è lanciato in una reinterpretazione del celebre brano dedicato a Bob Marley durante la trasmissione di Jools Holland della sera dell’ultimo dell’anno: il video su Blogo.

Ed Sheeran ci tiene a differenziarsi dagli altri osannati nomi del pop inglese dell’ultimo anno e per fortuna la cosa gli riesce sempre bene: in occasione della trasmissione di Jools Holland “Jools Annual Hootenanny” di Capodanno 2015, durante la quale il 31 dicembre 2014 sono apparsi diversi nomi di tutto rispetto come Paloma Faith, Ellie Goulding e Paolo Nutini, il giovane cantautore inglese ha voluto omaggiare uno dei grandi nomi della musica black moderna.

Ed Sheeran ha infatti cantato una cover di Master Blaster (Jammin’) di Stevie Wonder, scritta originariamente come omaggio a Bob Marley da parte del cantautore americano di musica soul e uscita nel 1980 con un irresistibile ritmo di ispirazione reggae. Alla performance di Ed Sheeran si è unito lo stesso presentatore Jools Holland al pianoforte per un inedito duetto, mentre l’orchestra del programma si occupava della parte ritmica.

Il rosso cantautore inglese si è difeso benissimo ed è riuscito a non sfigurare, interpretandola con grazia e rispetto. Doti rare nelle eccessive cover che quotidianamente inondano youtube…

Ed Sheeran, cover di Master Blaster di Stevie Wonder: testo

Everyone’s feeling pretty
It’s hotter than July
Though the world’s full of problems
They couldn’t touch us even if they tried
From the park I hear rhythms
Marley’s hot on the box
Tonight there will be a party
On the corner at the end of the block

Didn’t know you
Would be jammin’ until the break of dawn
I bet nobody ever told you that you
would be jammin’ until the break of dawn
You would be jammin’ and jammin’ and jammin’, jam on

They want us to join their fighting
But our answer today
Is to let all our worries
Like the breeze through our fingers slip away
Peace has come to Zimbabwe
Third World’s right on the one
Now’s the time for celebration
‘Cause we’ve only just begun

Didn’t know that you
Would be jammin’ until the break of dawn
Bet you nobody ever told you that you
Would be jammin’ until the break of dawn
You would be jammin’ and jammin’ and jammin’, jam on
Bet you nobody ever told you that you
(We’re in the middle of the makin’s of the master blaster jammin’)
Would be jammin’ until the break of dawn
I know nobody told you that you
(We’re in the middle of the makin’s of the master blaster jammin’)
Would be jammin’ until the break of dawn
We’re jammin’, jammin’, jammin’, jam on

You ask me am I happy
Well as matter of fact
I can say that I’m ecstatic
‘Cause we all just made a pact
We’ve agreed to get together
Joined as children in Jah
When you’re moving in the positive
Your destination is the brightest star

You didn’t know that you
(We’re in the middle of the makin’s of the master blaster jammin’)
Would be jammin’ until the break of dawn
I bet you nobody ever told you that you
(We’re in the middle of the makin’s of the master blaster jammin’)
Would be jammin’ until the break of dawn
Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh, you
(We’re in the middle of the makin’s of the master blaster jammin’)
Would be jammin’ until the break of dawn
Don’t you stop the music, oh no,
(We’re in the middle of the makin’s of the master blaster jammin’)
Na, na na…
(We’re in the middle of the makin’s of the master blaster jammin’)
Nobody told you Oh, Oh, Oh, you
(We’re in the middle of the makin’s of the master blaster jammin’)
Would be jammin’ until the break of dawn
I bet you if someone approached you yesterday to tell you that you would be jammin’
you would not believe it because you never thought that you would be jammin’
Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh,
(We’re in the middle of the makin’s of the master blaster jammin’)
jammin’ ‘til the break of dawn
Oh, Oh, Oh, You may as well believe what you are feeling
(We’re in the middle of the makin’s of the master blaster jammin’)
because you feel your body jammin’
(We’re in the middle of the makin’s of the master blaster jammin’)
Oh, Oh, you would be jammin’ until the break of dawn
(We’re in the middle of the makin’s of the master blaster jammin’)
(We’re in the middle of the makin’s of the master blaster jammin’)
