i… i unironically love james blunt.

So clearly I’m falling down on the job because I didn’t bother to write anything about 30 Rock or The Office today.  I was too busy downloading “You’re Beautiful” and “Goodbye My Lover” by James Blunt.

I’ve been hearing snatches of these songs all over the place, often in parody sorts of things, situations where someone needed a song conveying an OVER THE TOP AMOUNT OF ANGST.  But the first time I actually heard either one was when I watched a Doctor Who fanvid, a shippy Doctor/Rose vid, set to “Goodbye My Lover,” and mock me all you like for my shipper tendencies but the song stuck with me even though I had no idea who it was by.  So today I finally bothered to look them up and listen to them properly and… and… I’m in love.

What is wrong with me???  Clearly I need some Flobots or White Stripes or something to clear my palette and remind me what my usual taste in music is…
