Another one of 2014's biggest hits happen to be Ed Sheeran's "Thinking Out Loud" and with every hit comes a slew of covers on YouTube ranging from bad to truly amazing.

Below are five of the best "Thinking Out Loud" covers.

One of the best covers that can be found on YouTube comes from Dermot Kennedy and the Glide YouTube channel. His acoustic style fits the song perfectly but more impressive is the fact that it was performed in the middle of a city setting.

The performance was both genuine and refreshing. Sheeran fans would agree that if "Thinking Out Loud" is going to be covered this is definitely one of the ways to go.

Sheeran has a very delicate and clean sound and YouTuber Joseph Vincent managed to capture the same sound in his cover of "Thinking Out Loud." The cover was smooth and there were obvious instances where Vincent tried to make the song a little more original.

"Thinking Out Loud" is a simply but sweet song and Vincent managed to capture that essence in his cover as well. Fans will really appreciate what Vincent did in his cover of the Sheeran hit.

Another crisp and delicate cover comes from Mia Rose. It is yet another acoustic take on "Thinking Out Loud" but a little simpler than the others mentioned so far.

There is definite skill shown in her rendition of the song and it is very pleasing to the sonic palette.

Sometimes simple makes all of the difference when comes to covers and Rose, Vincent and Kennedy all used that pretty well.

Like Rose, Lilly Ahlberg also offers a much slower acoustic version of "Thinking Out Loud" that still works beautifully. There is something about the cover that almost reminds you of Jasmine Thompson meets Ed Sheeran.

There is a delicate whisper in the way the lyrics are delivered to the listener and it's done so skillfully. Authenticity is brought to this solid version of the cover.

Last but not least is Fiona Culley's country twist on "Thinking Out Loud." The song is very hard to do in many other stylings than that of the acoustic nature or pop nature.

Culley manages to do something only Hunter Hayes has done correctly in her country twist cover of the song. It is very genuine and mixes both a country and pop sound together for something clean and beautiful.
