I’ll Be Your Man (2010) – James Blunt

The Brit Awards 2010

I always enjoyed James catchy tunes and the opening jingly acoustic arrangement here. I’ll Be Your Man was released as the fourth single from his third studio album, Some Kind of Trouble. This is the fourth song presented here from James Blunt. I’ll also be blunt and admit this isn’t a great song. It’s as though James is getting in touch with his inner teen idol, but I did enjoy listening to it when it came out.

So many voices
Too many noises
Invisible lies keeping us apart
So many choices, but they’re all disappointment
And they only steal me away from you
Climb into our own private bubble
Let’s get into all kinds of trouble

The music video below released featured footage of Blunt’s Some Kind of Trouble tour. In an interview Blunt said of the album: “After the last tour, I tried writing at the piano, but I found I was repeating myself, writing sad songs about poor old me...My new songs are more optimistic. In another interview he said: What I really like about it is its energy and optimism – it’s completely positive. The critics weren’t so much – the album receiving an aggregate score of 45/100 from Metacritic. One critic described the album as a Shallow, soulless and strangely cynical, Some Kind of Trouble is a thoroughly depressing listen. Ouch.

So, on that note, I’ll leave you with this thoroughly depressing track…’I’m Your Man‘.
