C&V's got a problem with James Blunt

The damn song may be catchy, and it may have unlimited potential for taking the piss, but sadly it's also hard to get out of your head and C&V is finding himself caught between liking and not liking and being embarrassed.
I don't like it, in fact. So I can't be ashamed of liking it. But at the same time, if I did like I wouldn't be ashamed of liking it. So I am not ashamed about not not liking it and nor am I ashamed about not liking liking it. Or something.

I might just start telling people I do like it. In fact, perhaps I have liked it all along and have been internalising my shame by means of turning it into a comedy high pitched version which makes me sing the proper version which when other people hear it makes them ask me about it so I have to talk about James Blunt even though I didn't think I wanted to but secretly did.

Am I in love with James Blunt?
Ah, bless: the torture that is James Blunt takes another victim!

D'you know what, the one thing that makes Blunt's music barely tolerable, is that when he's singing at least he's not talking. I mean *my God* is it possible for anyone to have a mre annoying voice?!!

I watched some of the Brits and every time they played a clip of his music I had to talk loudly over it in case I heard even a second. But then he had a performance and I couldn't speak loudly enough to drown it out so I had to switch over. Oh, how I hate him.
