James Blunt's "You're Beautiful" Irritates Voters


James Blunt
James Blunt's hit "You're Beautiful" is placed at #1 in the list of Most Irritating Songs of All Time.


Despite scoring multiple #1 in many country charts and awarded Ivor Novello Awards, James Blunt's "You're Beautiful" is voted the most irritating song of all time. The song sits at #1 in the top 10 tally held by www.onepoll.com.

John Sewell, the market researcher for the website admitted that the poll showed a surprising result. He said, "James Blunt isn't the obvious choice, but any song that is at number one for so long does start to get annoying."

The pattern can be seen in the way the voters define "irritating". They tend to get annoyed at most #1 songs that got heavy airplay back in the song's glorious days. At No. 2 in the poll is Crazy Frog's "Axel F" that went #1 in most charts except for Billboard 100. Hanson's "MMMBop" that sits at #3 was also a spectacular popularity back in 1997.

"You're Beautiful" sat at #1 slot in UK singles chart for five consecutive weeks and even reached #1 in Billboard U.S. Hot 100. Blunt's personal comment on the song was: "It's probably one of the least meaningful songs on the album and by no means people's favourite. The album is like a book covering various aspects of life in a specific order."
