    Yo, "You're Beautiful" Is Not A Romantic Song AT ALL

    "‘You’re Beautiful’ is not this soft, romantic fucking song."

    Chances are, at least once in your life, you've heard the song "You're Beautiful" by James Blunt. If you haven't heard it in a hot sec, here ya go:

    Also, sorry that it's probably now stuck in your head.

    And while you may remember it as a romantic song — the piano helps — James wants you to know that you're WRONG.

    In a recent interview with the Huffington Post, James said:

    Everyone goes, "‘Ah, he’s so romantic. I want ‘You’re Beautiful’ as my wedding song.'" These people are fucked up... ‘You’re Beautiful’ is not this soft, romantic fucking song. It’s about a guy who’s high as a fucking kite on drugs in the subway stalking someone else’s girlfriend when that guy is there in front of him, and he should be locked up or put in prison for being some kind of perv.

    Let's take a look at the lyrics, shall we?

    So yeah, "You're Beautiful" ≠ Romantic.
