Who wrote that song?
Do you ever get a tune stuck in your head and find yourself thinking ‘what song it is that’?- or ‘who sings it’? When this happens we often turn to Shazam to tell us all about the song we just listened to.
But how often do we wonder who wrote it? We have come to know many artists as singer-songwriters – But did you know that Ed Sheeran’s latest hit ‘Shape of You’ was actually written in collaboration with 5 other musicians? And so – we often don’t recognise the many people behind the composition of the hits we love.
