You're Pitiful, James Blunt

I was reading a forum the other day and a topic caught my eye. Something about songs that annoy the hell out of them the most and boy oh boy, do I have a long list or what? Here are my current top annoyances:

10) L.O.V.E - Ashlee Simpson

9) Old Newspaper - Jason Lo

8) Stars Are Blind - Paris Hilton

7) Check On It - Beyonce

6) Maneater - Nelly Furtado

5) Temperature - Sean Paul

4) We Be Burnin' - Sean Paul

3) High - James Blunt

2) Goodbye My Lover - James Blunt

and the one that tops the list is *drum roll*

1) You're Beautiful - James Blunt

I dunno what it is about James Blunt that irritates me so much so that he fills all Top 3 spots on my hate list. It a toss between the high-pitched whining he tried to pass off poorly as singing or the fact that he looked like a damn sissy for an ex-military man. To quote a fella forummer, 'I'd like to hit James Blunt with a VERY blunt object!'. Haha! How true.

In fact, I not only can't stand his voice, I can't stand the sight of him either. The best part is, I'm not the odd one out. Many people I've asked find him irritating as well. In fact, he also topped the annoying list in the above-mentioned forum. Hate that stupid video of 'You're Beautiful', especially when he starts taking things out from his pocket. I thought the entire video is inane and it drives me insane!

This is one guy that makes my blood boil at the very sight and sound of him! Kudos to Weird Al Yankovic for his version called 'You're Pitiful'. I like that version just fine. Then there's that awful Sean Paul. Ugh! He call that mumbo-jumbo he's sputtering out as singing? Puh-lease! Don't even get me started!

Dunno about the guy, but his songs are pretty ok to me. My #1 candidate for "Hunk with a squeaky voice" is still David Beckham. Kekekeke....
