「ed sheeran divide」的圖片搜尋結果

這已經不是我第一次翻譯"Galway Girl"了。

是居爾特音樂帶我認識西洋流行音樂,而Celtic Woman和Celtic Thunder更是兩年多前這個網站的初衷......

當Ed Sheeran釋出新歌曲時,我眼裡就只有這首Galway Girl。

身為Celtic Music的樂迷,就我來看,Ed在旋律上還是有些流行的成分(畢竟要顧及市場指向?),但歌詞、笛聲及小提琴誠實充滿了道地的風格呢。

我的習慣還是一樣,雖然很久沒有做說明了,但是,看到 *(括號時願意的話可以反白參考喔) 

(我都很好奇我有時候沒說是不是就只有我在看隱字XDD)
