I also heard he was inspired to write it after seeing his old GF with another man (not that it made him suicidal...).

Yes, looks like suicide to me, which makes me sad cuz while watching the video I just want to give him a warm blankie, mug of cocoa, crackling fire and moi! (sssshhhh, don't tell DH!)
Awww ... that's so sweet. I find James Blunt hot too, don't think I've told DH yet. :P :P

I love wikipedia, they have everything!

DH and I talked about that video when I told him about the interview James Blunt had with Oprah. DH thought that the video hinted at suicide. I am the logical one here - why does he have to kill himself? Just because his ex gf is with someone else? It's a beautiful and sad song. I love British pop music! I am a sucker for a lot of things British because one of my ex bf was British. Oh DH knows about that one! ;)

I can tell ya....the story behind 'Beautiful' is that he saw his ex-girlfriend with her new boyfriend on the subway, she had left him some time before and he was finding it hard to get over the break up - hence the lyrics 'it's time to face the truth, i'll never be with you'
Based on true life, so i hear!

My OH is friends with, and works occasionally with JB's auntie, The OH managed to grab a VIP guest ticket to a JB concert last year, and i couldn't go cos i had to BABYSIT:blink:
Anyway, JB is off promoting his album right now and won't be back until July (ish).:P

I can try and find out what the water part in the video is for? I would assume it's just part of the video and he's kinda giving up on the fact that he won't ever be with the girl he once loved?
Chicky - do try to find out, I am curious! Thanks.

Virtually every guy I've ever talked to over here, or that I've heard talking about it on the TV or radio; can't stand James Blunt, or the song 'Beautiful'!

I quite like it; but then I'm a woman.

Apparently, it's the song equivalent of a chick flick! ;)
