When I first heard Ed Sheeran's "Perfect" I immediately recognized the melodic connection to "Amazing Grace", and as I listened again I realized - Wow! This might be one of the best pop songs I've heard in a long time. As with any hit song, endless cover versions filled the internet soon after - but something was different about this one. First, one of my favorite string duos, 2 Cellos released their version. Then, to my astonishment, so did Andrea Bocceli!
That's when I knew I had to put my own spin on it with the talented Tom Goss accompanying me on guitar!
In doing so, I wanted to tell a romantic story between two people who have a deep love for each other, imperfections and all. I wanted to depict the feelings you have when you're separated from the person you love most. The feeling of longing that creeps up when you suddenly realize how empty the bed is without them. Or the way you play "your song" over and over again to fill the silence.
It's easy to miss the good things, but real love is missing EVERY thing - even their morning breath ;)
Love isn't perfect and neither are we! But maybe that's the "perfect" combination.
