We were already swooning over One Direction’s super-cute love song “Little Things” before the song surfaced on the web, and before black-and-white-and-beautiful music vid. Why? Because we knew it had been written by Ed Sheeran, so it was bound to be one of our faves!

The redhead cutie penned two songs for 1D’s Take Me Home (the other one is “Over You”), and while we love what the 1D boys did with the tune, we couldn’t help but want to hear an Ed version, too!

Ed must’ve read our thoughts, because he recently performed “Little Things” at a show in Paris. Check out the video above, where Ed tries to get the excited crowd to seriously shhh so he can sing the song “totally acoustic” for them. He finally gets those squealing girls to settle down, and strums out “Little Things” for the crowd. Um, adorable.

What do YOU think? Do you like Ed’s version as much as 1D’s? Tell us in the comments and on Twitter!
