Call Me a Dork...

...but I can't get this song out of my head.

UPDATE: the lyrics to this song actually suck quite a bit. I love the way he says "you're beautiful." The sound of it is great. But basically he's saying that he saw some girl for a second and she was beautiful. I wish he had written this song about someone he actually knows, someone whose warts he is familiar with. Telling that person that they are beautiful actually means something. Telling an annonymous stranger on the street that they are beautiful can boost someone's confidence, but you're judging them entirely on superficial stuff without seeing into their soul. They could be a "beautiful" axe murderer for all he knows. This is like a bad Hollywood movie. I love the way it sounds and I can't get those two words, "you're beautiful" out of my mind, but what a loser this guy is for wasting a nice song on such a stupid and trivial notion of beauty. Songs expressing love at first sight and "what if" connections across a crowded room need to be made, but this could have been a great love song. Maybe his life is not as brilliant as he thinks.

Hey, the guy that sings that song was on Oprah the other day. He IS actually singing the song about someone he knows. He saw his ex-girlfriend on the train with her new boyfriend that he didn't know she had. He said they caught eyes and he knew she could never love him like he loved her. Just thought you might like to know. :)
