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."
