'You're Beautiful': Go Back to 2006 With James Blunt

The British singer talks about the meaning behind his ubiquitous smash, its video and his...hard nipples?

Musically, 2006 will more or less be defined by James Blunt's ubiquitous single "You're Beautiful" that lives today as one of the most successful love ballads ever (that's also everyone's go-to karaoke jam), and has even forced the singer himself to apologize to everyone. In this from-the-vault clip that is almost too old school and awkward to be believed, the British singer reveals the meaning behind his breakout smash on Fuse's former countdown show Daily Download:

"It's about the ex-girlfriend. It was a moment when I saw her with her new man, who I didn't know existed, and she and I caught eyes on the Underground in London. We really lived a lifetime in that moment, but didn't do anything about it. And I haven't seen her since."
