Before The Soldiers had even discovered their favourite karaoke tune ex-army captain James Blunt was penning the songs that would become iconic to every pair of star crossed lovers for the future. His emotionally charged pop ballad ‘You’re Beautiful’ from his debut album ‘Back To Bedlam’ went straight into the top spot in ten different countries, including the UK and the US.

We instantly fell in love with this posh totty’s voice, drenched in vulnerability and when watching the video we couldn’t help but want to whisk the poor guy away from that ice cold mountain and take him to our mums for a nice cuppa, bless.

The trademark tune conjured up its fair share of parodies with the likes of “It’s Bloody Cold”, “You’re Pitiful” and “My Testicles” all sparking belly laughs aplenty and reflected just how popular the song had become, which we’re sure Mr Blunt appreciated.

‘You’re Beautiful’ is littered with controversy about whether the lyrics are about his ex-girlfriend Dixie Chassay, although Blunt refuses to confirm or deny this.

One thing we do know, is that ‘You’re Beautiful’ confirmed that there is such a thing as a truly romantic man in the world. There’s still hope yet ladies.
