You ' re Beautiful

"You're Beautiful" is a pop rock song co-written by British singer James Blunt, Sasha Skarbek and Amanda Ghost for Blunt's debut album Back to Bedlam (2004).
Newspapers have claimed that "You're Beautiful" is about a former girlfriend of Blunt's, Dixie Chassay, casting director for the Harry Potter films, although Blunt refuses to confirm or deny this.
Blunt said of the song, "It's kind of miserable. It was about seeing my ex-girlfriend on the Underground in London with her new man, who I didn't know existed. She and I caught eyes and lived a lifetime in that moment, but didn't do anything about it and haven't seen each other since."
This song leaves hardly anyone indifferent : some people love it, other people find it annoying. What about you?
As it's not difficult to understand, you don't need to have a high level of English to do the listening and reading comprehension activities that follow.
You just have to click and do the exercises.
