If one more tumblr user messages me about my username and Ed Sheeran, I am going to go apeshit…
First of all, I’ve had this username since 2009, and Ed Sheeran didn’t even post his version of “Wayfaring Stranger” until 2011. So obviously I came up with this username because of some other musicians VERSION of “Wayfaring Stranger”.
Yes naive tumblr user, I hate to break it to you but Ed Sheeran did not write “Wayfaring Stranger”. If you don’t believe me, well here is the link to the wiki article about the song
And while you are at it, how about you look up the other recordings of the song, because I just tried to sit through Ed Sheeran’s and I had to stop after 25 seconds of it.
If you really want to know what version inspired me to use “Wayfaring Stranger” as my username, here is the link to it. It is by a Detroit band called Blanche.
So yeah, Rant Over.
