Rewind to 2004, you couldn’t avoid You’re Beautiful by James Blunt in the charts, on the radio and generally everywhere you turned. His life may well have been ‘brilliant’, his ‘love pure’, he impressively ‘saw an angel’ of which he was ‘sure’. However, he was one of the UK’s most hated men.

He uses his uncoolness and general perception as a hated figure to reply and comeback at users attempting to troll him.

Has his hilarious new promo-video provoked you to say “Sure there’s ‘You’re Beautiful‘ but what else has he done since 2004?” Not to worry, here’s his most played songs on Spotify for you to enjoy. Say what you like about him, but a couple of these are undisputed bangers.
