Today we’re wishing our favorite musical redhead, Ed Sheeran, an incredibly happy 24th birthday. The ginger Brit has found our way into our hearts with his smooth, romantic sound— although he’s not the first musical carrot top that we’ve fallen irrepressibly in love with. Ever since Art Garfunkel and Daryl Hall were young men, we’ve held a soft spot for the orange haired troubadour. And when it comes to the ginger ladies, they’re not lacking in willful girl power: from Geri Halliwell to Annie Lennox to Neko Case to Shirley Manson to Tori Amos, red hair on a woman in music is synonymous with independence and power.
