Woman Profoundly Moved By Lyrics Artist Put Zero Time Or Effort Into

FALLS CHURCH, VA—Real estate agent Linda Vandermood was moved to the depths of her being Tuesday by the lyrics of James Blunt's adult contemporary single "You Are Sensitive," a keening ballad of unrequited yearning Blunt wrote on the back of a take-away food container and recorded for the purposes of contractual obligation. "God, I get goose bumps every time he sings, 'But something in this frozen world denies me your arms, your heart, your touch,'" Vandermood said of the lyrics Blunt came up with while on his Ibiza, Spain toilet. "When that comes on my iPod, it's all I can do to keep myself from crying. I've never heard anything so beautiful in all my life." The appreciation of Vandermood and several million other listeners for Blunt's tossed-off lyrics had netted the singer-songwriter $11 million as of Monday.
