You Need Me, I Don't Need You (3:39)

Cover of You Need Me, I Don't Need You

From You Need Me, I Don't Need You and 6 other releases

The You Need Me Songfacts explains that Sheeran wrote this song after being told by his original managers that he needed to conform if he wanted to succeed by dying his ginger hair and ditching his unique loop-pedal rapped delivery,

Twenty year old Ed was apparently told he should change his look to make it in the music business, but Ed responded by writing ‘You Need Me, I Don’t Need You’. It raced to No. 4 in the UK chart in September 2011 as the follow-up to his massive debut hit ‘The A Team’.
