Not the post I was shooting for tonight

I had it in my head that I was going to write a very intricate and detailed blog post tonight, but alas, my brain can't handle it. So instead, I offer this. I can't stand James Blunt. I cannot tolerate his music. I really really can't stand it. During the last two days at work, I have heard that hideous "Goodbye My Lover" song no less than seven times. One of my co-workers and I have started referring to it as "our song" because we both feel like throwing up whenever it comes on.

Seriously, the whining - not good. It's almost as if he's so aware of his sensitivity as to negate the fact that he's being sensitive. It's much the same thing as when someone sets out to write a song to be played at weddings, rather than just accidentally writing one that ends up being a wedding staple.

But let me tell you, if I never hear that song again, it'll be too soon. Same thing goes for "You're Beautiful." Ugh. I mean, I know I'm not the target demographic for his music, but it's just not appealing AT ALL.

And apparently, I'm not alone - this from Wikipedia (all bow before the infallible source):
A survey conducted this year reported that Blunt was the fourth most annoying thing in the UK, beaten only by cold callers, queue-jumpers and caravans

Oh gosh, you may have no idea just how difficult it was to walk down a UK street this year without hearing You're Beautiful blaring from some darkened window or other...

if I had to vote, I'd pick that Bad Day song as the most annoying, over played song from the past year. and then anything about Humps or Bridges. UGH!

And here I thought it was John Mayer. I am clueless. But yes, it is definitely on my list of top most 5 annoying songs EVAR.
