Mmm....love me some UK musicians. Saw James Blunt last night at 930. Delicious show. I really had no idea how he'd come across live, but he started out with a bang. Quite captivating, even if you'd never heard him before. I was impressed with the strength of his voice. Some good stuff.
Highlight for me was Goodbye My Lover, when his band left the stage and he was alone with the piano. He made some crack about how we were all there to have a good time, but the next song was miserable. Truly, it was miserably amazing. I knew the song, I was prepared for a bit of temporary heartache, but it was nearly devastiving. I could feel my empty soul! Okay, that's a bit dramatic, but it was a moving performance. Man, those lyrics are tough. Good for when you need a punch in the gut.
I know we're all near radio/MTV/VH1 burn-out of You're Beautiful, but keep on listening to Mr. JB. Hope he's around for awhile.
My roommates threatened to lock me out of the house if I didn't come home with him in tow. Sorry ladies - I got my kicks at the club. He'll be around again, I'm sure.
