The hottest artist in music today is probably James Blunt. He was just on Oprah this week, singing his two singles, "You're Beautiful" and "Goodbye My Lover".
This lyric in "Goodbye My Lover" kills me:
And I still hold your hand in mine
In mine when I'm asleep.
The first time I heard "You're Beautiful" was when I saw the video on Vh1. The song itself seems pretty literal to me - he sees his ex in a subway with another man and realizes they can never be together again; the video is definitely more abstract. It's just him with a stark background, and all he does in the video is sing to the camera while stripping his clothes and then carefully and neatly laying them down on the ground. At the very end of the song, he jumps off a cliff into the water. It has been interpreted as being about suicide, but I don't think that is the case. I'd be interested to hear what other people think about it. Maybe it's symbolic of baptism or maybe the video means nothing more than James Blunt has a cheap video budget. :P
