You’re Beautiful, it’s true.
I saw your face, in a crowded place
And I don’t know what to do;
Cuz I’ll never be with you.” -James Blunt
These are the profound lyrics of the modern singer/songwriter. (GAG!!!)
I’m sorry, there has got to be SERIOUS payola going on somewhere for this song to be played on the radio so much. The guy looks like a serial killer, his voice is annoying, the melody to this song is amazing in its stupidity only because it is trumped in it’s stupidity by those horrid lyrics.
Come on, those lyrics sound like something a sensitive 6th grade boy would write in his first attempts to write a song/poem and realized he could rhyme “face” and “place”. (no offense to sensitive 6th grade boys)
The real question is “why this guy”? There are hundreds of great singer/songwriters who have put out their first records this past year and there have got to be artists/songs that are better than this idiot. I mean, I can name half a dozen singer/songwriters with brand new records that make this guy sound like the no-talent loser he is. (off the top of my head, I’m thinking that rhett miller and glenn phillps and bruce springsteen have all put out new solo albums recently, how come none of them are getting played once an hour?)
Holly’s radio woke me up this morning and this dumb-ass song was playing. I may need to take some kind of anger management class for when I hear hear it.
