Pun of the day:
I don’t want to be beautiful.
I don’t want to be you the fool.

Everybody knows James Blunt now, because of “You’re beautiful”.

James might be quite blunt with the lyrics of his song “You’re beautiful”, but that breakout hit has reached number one on the Billboard Hot 100 this year.

Who doesn’t know James Blunt now? Everyone, from little kids to aunties uncles ah lian ah beng to neighbours colleagues classmates bosses to your gym instructor to the petrol kiosk worker, all are now praising each other’s gorgeousness. Maybe James Blunt should really get a Nobel prize for this world-peace-promoting song.

It’s really amazing how a song can tahan so long. Few months after the release, it is still playing like mad on the radio today.

And i know you all like this song. But i’m just a little bit annoyed by the omnipresence of said song and it’s disturbing lyrics.

I was talking to a friend about him today.

Cheesie:: Dammit this is the 4th time i heard You’re Beautiful on the same bloody channel today!
Friend: Haha. It’s nice what.

Cheesie:: Of course it is. But it is only nice when you don’t play it round-the-clock for half a year consecutively.

Friend: Can’t complain. Everybody can sort of relate to the song in some way. Typical heartbreak song la, you are not getting the person you want most. πŸ™

Cheesie:: I actually like the melody very much, but when i really listened to the lyrics right, i kinda felt disgusted leh.

Friend: *shocked* Huh why?! It’s such a sweet and touching song! Not to mention so kesian too.

Cheesie:: Kesian yes touching no. More like pathetic and perverted. Man, imagine it’s some middle-age, balding, balls-scratching horny ah pek crooning the song while ogling at Jessica Alba’s poster. Can you imagine!!

Friend: You damn potong steam. -_-
I dunno la. You all tell me if i’m the only who thinks like that. -_-

Original Lyrics

“You’re Beautiful” by James very the Blunt
My life is brilliant.

My life is brilliant.
My love is pure.
I saw an angel.
Of that I’m sure.
She smiled at me on the subway.
She was with another man.
But I won’t lose no sleep on that,
‘Cause I’ve got a plan.

You’re beautiful. You’re beautiful.
You’re beautiful, it’s true.
I saw your face in a crowded place,
And I don’t know what to do,
‘Cause I’ll never be with you.

Yeah, she caught my eye,
As we walked on by.
She could see from my face that I was,
Flying high, [ – video/radio edited version] Fucking high, [ – CD version] And I don’t think that I’ll see her again,
But we shared a moment that will last till the end.

You’re beautiful. You’re beautiful.
You’re beautiful, it’s true.
There must be an angel with a smile on her face,
When she thought up that I should be with you.
But it’s time to face the truth,
I will never be with you.

James has got a monumentally boring music video. I think i can do better than him looking as if he’s just fell into a longkang and stripping off throughout the MV, seriously.

Check out Cheesie’s version of “You’re beautiful” MV stills. Lyrics edited to enhance the beauty of the song.

If you have that song, please play it and sing along with me.

Have cheese.
