“Perfect” is the fifth track on Ed Sheeran’s third studio album, which was released in March this year. It is an old-fashioned romantic ballad written about his girlfriend Cherry Seaborn, which Sheeran said he hoped would become another one of his defining songs and, according to the BBC, is ‘guaranteed to soundtrack thousands of first dances before the year is out. Explaining his motivation for writing “Perfect” Ed revealed that in his opinion the song “Perfect” is actually better than “Thinking Out Loud”, as there was always a scare that “Thinking Out Loud” would define him and his career. So he wrote a lot of songs trying to beat it. Thematically, the song is reminiscent of “18,” a song he wrote for his friends in One Direction.
