Top 10 Best James Blunt Songs

Sure, you know "You're Beautiful." It was EVERYWHERE when it came out. But did you know that James Blunt has a whole treasure trove of catchy tunes and heart-wrenching lyrics tucked into his albums? His blend of raw vocals, clever storytelling, and a dash of self-deprecating humor has earned him a dedicated fanbase.

Whether you're a long-time follower or just starting to explore his music, get ready to discover (or rediscover) some of his best work. Think beyond the mega-hit, and you might be surprised at how much deeper this artist can go.
The Top Ten
1 You're Beautiful

There was a beautiful woman whom I used to see around. Sometimes I'd bump into her in the street, sometimes in the supermarket. Maybe about 10 times. I hope she didn't think I was stalking her. It was by chance, honestly, as I'm sure she worked near where I live and lived nearby herself. But I've not seen her for a while now, so I suspect she's moved house and work.

She looked wonderful in her smart, casual workwear, as well as jeans on her off days. In summer, I even glimpsed her in her denim shorts, daisy dukes, which looked hot on her.

I never heard her speak, so I don't know what she sounded like, don't know what she talked about, or what her interests were, but she intrigued me, so mysterious. She had lovely long blond hair. But I think she had a boyfriend or husband, whom I saw her walking with once or twice. So that's why I vote for this song.

2 Goodbye My Lover

This is the BEST song of his. It relates the beautiful story of him after breaking up with his girlfriend, the one who changed his life and all his goals, the one with whom he shared his bed. This list is missing Same Mistake, which is one of his best songs.

Since my wife of 40 years passed away, I heard this song. Now I know my loss isn't about romance, but it just seemed to be suitable for me and my loss. Thank you, James.

This song is my favorite above all songs. It makes me cry and makes me happy. I really hope all the new artists make me feel like that. Really good musician.

3 1973

I don't know why, but every time I hear the lyrics, I just feel like I have lost something and somehow, I get another thing instead. It just brings me back to the old west America.

Beautiful music and lyrics that capture a sentimentality beyond words. They evoke mixed feelings and reminiscences every time you listen.

Awesome song! Mushy lyrics and super music make it one of the best songs ever sung by James Blunt!

4 Stay the Night

I love this song. It sounds so happy and in a good mood. I first heard this on the X-Factor Australia, and that probably boosted the fame of this song a lot higher. Glad it became a popular song because it's so awesome.

A very good and catchy song by James Blunt. This song sounds totally different from You're Beautiful, and that's what I like about it. The verses are very clever, and it is very kind and easy to sing along to.

This is the best song by far. It makes you feel good and happy. It's very catchy and is something very different from the type of song that he usually makes.

5 Carry You Home

The lyrics are peaceful and amazing. The melody is perfect and sweet. However, every time I listen to it, I feel confused with myself and amazed by the power of this music. So, I love it. Number 1 of James Blunt.

Makes me cry every time. Beautiful! Definitely one of the best, but in my personal opinion, the best of all James Blunt's songs. Sorry, I made this comment long just to satisfy the length meter thingy.

Heart melting. Beautiful lyrics that make you weep. James Blunt is simply amazing. Songs don't get better than this. Puts rock songs to shame.

6 Wisemen

You're Beautiful is No. 1, I may not argue, but Wisemen is just so one of its kind. How it is so low on the list, come on people!

"Look who's alone now? It's not me."
"Gotta ask yourself the question, where are you now?"
Just love it.

It is one of the best songs James Blunt has. It has that feeling and gives you that emotion. Makes you ask yourself the question, "Where are you now?"

7 Same Mistake

I'm really shocked to see this song in 11th position because I thought it would be in 4th or 5th. It has great lyrics and music. It suits so many people today, absolutely underrated and needs to be voted for. So, guys, please vote for it. It's James' favorite song.

This is his second-best song. This song is like the story of my life. I have seen my enemy, he looks just like me. Do you need anything more than this line to love this song?

This is by far James's most expressive song. You can feel the emotional pain listening to it. A great, well-rounded song all the way.

8 Tears and Rain

I love this piece so much! It's very pretty and often overlooked by many. I really like the songs from his newest album, but this still remains my favorite!

This song is overlooked sometimes because it's not extremely powerful. However, it's so majestic and has a really beautiful melody.

Truly the best song along with "You're Beautiful." It's pure harmony.

9 I'll Be Your Man

Dude! Best song! How is this here! This should be in the first, second, or third position. You're Beautiful, 1973, and I'll Be Your Man are the best of his songs and the best of the best songs ever! Vote for this song and get it up there, people!

Really good song, absolutely deserves to be in the top 10! Listen to it if you don't believe me. It's been the soundtrack for my whole week.

Too good a song. Very few songs make the soul dance. This is one such!

10 I Really Want You

The best song of James Blunt. Great and very original lyrics from him. Just hear this song, and you will know how great falling in love is. How someone can be so precious. I really want you to really want me.

This is the genre where Blunt really shines. My favorite, second to No Bravery. Love the sad feeling songs. Of course, the top 10 songs are great too, but I don't relate to them as much.

The Contenders
11 Bonfire Heart

This song just transports me to a peaceful, quiet countryside filled with lovely people to talk to. Definitely one of his best works.

Beautiful memories of this song. My son was about to be born, and I played the song over and over again!

It's different from all the other songs, and it has an uplifting feel to it!

12 Cry

This song can be both sad and hopeful. I used to listen to it before and get that feeling of catharsis. And now, I listen to it with my girlfriend, and it fills my heart with love and hope. This song is for any time and any feeling.

Such an amazingly raw and emotional song. Just listen to the lyrics. He really draws on his own life experiences within the lyrics.

Heavy, heavy song. Reminds me of me and my dad. James Blunt is honestly one of a kind.

13 High

By far the best song on this list, never gets old. The live version of this song is even better.

Oh my gosh, why isn't this song in the top 3? Unbelievable! This song touches my soul! There is none like it, period.

Just 10? I thought it would be in at least the top 5! The greatest song ever! The melody and the lyrics are astonishing.

14 So Far Gone

Honestly, this is one of the best tunes I've ever heard in my life. It possesses some lines that end up dropping my jaw.

"I can't sleep beside a stranger now."
"And piece by piece we fall apart."
"So I'll just say what you won't say."

And the line which strikes deep within our hearts:
"Tell me the wars you're fighting
Behind the smile you're hiding
All the things I know you want to say."

Soulful, painful, and full of love, this song deserves to be in the top ten. But, well, we can't have everything.

I am happy with this being 'my' song. Legit gold.

15 Annie

It is good. Don't know if it's his best, but I listened to it high and it made me so happy.

Should be number one! Best song by a country mile.

Greatest song ever made. I listen to it each and every day, and it's very sad but a lovely song.

16 When I Find Love Again
17 Postcards

I simply cannot stand to see this song ranked so low. You guys have to listen to it. Simply great guitar playing and a soothing melody. Great song. Vote for it.

Why in the world is this song so low in the ranking?!

18 Heart to Heart

29? Well, we all know it's hard to rank James Blunt's songs as they are all just awesome, but come on guys, make this one higher.

19 Shine On

Really beautiful song. It tells us that love conquers everything and that it doesn't matter who is against the two of you as long as you know love is real. It should be so much higher!

Very nice song. Deep and peaceful. The bridge part is the best. That's what makes the song so different. I like this very much.

20 No Tears

This is such a beautiful song and should be in the top ten (at least). It brings me to tears with every listen.

How ironic that I end up crying when I hear this.

Should be higher on the list. Such a beautiful song. Gets me teary-eyed.

21 Here We Go Again
22 Je Realise
23 Best Laid Plans

I cannot believe it's not even in the list. Awesome lyrics and a heart-touching chorus. Deserves to be in the top 10. Must give it a try.

Awesome song. I never heard of it before, but I gave it a shot after looking at the list. Good song. Deserves at least the 6th spot.

Maybe you think this song is just ordinary. Keep it up. I like it the way it is. Not too much improvisation, but it hit my ear.

24 If Time is All I Have

Very sentimental song. This song obliges us to think about what we really want with the people we like or love.

And the video clip is so real. When I see this video clip, I always think that he is singing in real time.

Awesome song, man. It has to be in the top ten.

25 Give Me Some Love

This is one of the catchiest songs by James Blunt. And you can really feel what he wants to say.

I really love this song. So touching. Please, this must be in the top 5 after You're Beautiful, Tears and Rain, 1973, and Carry You Home.
