James Blunt Reveals That ‘You’re Beautiful’ Isn’t Actually A Love Song

“My life is brilliant,” says James Blunt as he looks dreamily into the horizon in the pouring rain. On the hill where James Blunt stands, it looks freezing cold, but over the course of three-and-a-half minutes, James Blunt slowly strips off his jacket, shirt, socks and shoes, laying them out in front of him before jumping into the sea below.

I am, of course, describing the music video to You’re Beautiful, the single that helped turn James Blunt from a former reconnaissance officer for the British Army into one of the biggest pop stars in the world.

With its crooning vocals, gentle guitar instrumental and catchy chorus, You’re Beautiful shot to number one in the United Kingdom, and sold three million copies in the United States as of 2012. In the years since its 2004 release, Rolling Stone ranked You’re Beautiful number seven on a poll of the Top 10 Most Annoying Songs, and its legacy seems to be that of an irritating, overly sappy love song.

According to the artist, though, that assumption is well wide of the mark. In fact, James Blunt has since admitted that You’re Beautiful is not a love song at all.
