To fucking HATE the dirge like tones of that James Arthur song

It is always on my local radio. Woman pukes, he makes her breakfast in bed and takes the kids to school and is in love. Great. Romance at its finest!

I don't mind the song itself, but he slurs the chorus like he's drunk, and the whole thing is a blatant rip off of The Man That Can't Be Moved by The Script. They are virtually identical.

I quite like it tbh.

It's not clear from the lyrics but it sounds like she's a single mum on the razz, and he's desperate.

Boundaries Fri 30-Dec-16 11:13:27

Yep. The line about him holding her hair back then her looking over her shoulder and asking him to stay the night? <boat>

luckymucky Fri 30-Dec-16 11:14:55

Yes but once she has puked she looks over her shoulder, that's when the magic happens. The vomit fumes, the bits in her teeth all add to that magic. Gees Posh are you usually so cynical; don't you believe in love at first vomit?

YADNBU

What does he want, a fucking medal? Fuck off James Arthur with your whiny voice and your fucking boring song and your fucking mascara (don't think we don't know)

I might be biased though as I don't like him much grin

Red flags flying. He fancies her when she's vulnerable. Then he comes home with her and takes her kids to school while mum is hungover with breakfast in bed. Yeah he's desperate and she needs reporting to SS.

You absolute fools! The other lyrics are "look how far we've come"
It is about a couple who met in a drunken night out, fell in love, got married, raised kids and are still as crazy in love.
The lyrics may be look how we've grown. But it's about relationships growing together and the vows they made always being relevant.

I will admit his voice is quite depressing, but the lyrics make proper sense.
It isn't about a single mum on the razz who needs SS intervention.

Boundaries Fri 30-Dec-16 11:18:59

Oh god! I assumed there was some sort of time condensing going on.

But you're RIGHT posh

<sadface> poor kids.

luckymucky Fri 30-Dec-16 11:24:13

But....he doesn't sleep with her on the first night cos he thinks she should get some rest. It has NOTHING to do with wanting to wait until she's cleaned her teeth and wiped her chin dribble.
Posh are you really the puking girl? Has he found another pucker? Has he stopped making you breakfast?

poshwomanatchristmas Fri 30-Dec-16 11:24:32

Even if that IS the case who sprawls around with breakfast in bed on a school day? Hmm?

AIBU to demand hubby (she's a hubby type, I can tell) brings me breakfast in bed and takes the kids to school? He still drones on about how grateful he was he met me when I was pissed so it should be a pleasure for him.

poshwomanatchristmas Fri 30-Dec-16 11:25:28

Sob!

No one makes me breakfast in bed! (Don't fancy it really - crumbs!)

I prefer a bit of little mix on the radio. It's dire but I do like to bellow 'shout out to my EX!'

ScarlettDarling Fri 30-Dec-16 11:28:24

I can't bear his voice...that croaky effect that he puts on, what's that meant to be?I have to turn off the radio when he comes on, seriously can't bear him.

wowbutter Fri 30-Dec-16 11:57:25

I have breakfast in bed in school days, made by my hubby. Ha ha.

(Vom! ) we actually always eat breakfast in bed as I am on anti emetic and pain medication that takes a while to kick in. So I wake up, take it, Mr potters away to make coffee and comes back with coffee and toast which we both eat in bed, before getting up. Been doing it like this for a couple years now, it's lovely.

Bastard never took the kids to school though!

CanaryFish Fri 30-Dec-16 11:57:54

He's very inconsistent with his commitment to her also.
In one line he says he'll stay until they are "grey and old"
Then he says he'll live with her when they are ghosts.
Then he goes back on that saying he'll love her until his lungs give out and death parts them!

Talk about mixed messages eh

Boundaries Fri 30-Dec-16 12:00:24

I think we get a very one sided message.

I'd like to hear her side. I think we'd be hearing about a VERY controlling man who won't allow her any social interaction even the school run.

I bet he keeps her looked up and only feeds her instant coffee and mother's pride white sliced.

Gobbolinothewitchscat Fri 30-Dec-16 12:01:59

I hate this song. Just battled my way to Tescos with 1,2 and 4 year olds with it droning on every radio station. Get into Tesco and he's whining away there too!

Merrylegs Fri 30-Dec-16 12:11:17

Oh god you're not wrong.

Lots of talent show songs seem to get this treatment though -it's not auto-tune, more like auto-slur where the words mean so much more when they're kind of breathed out.

So, she's puking in the bog but it's actually really deep and meaningful and shexy because I'm shlurring shoulfully.

Anunciate, young people.

Merrylegs Fri 30-Dec-16 12:14:52

<although actually I think he does promise to love her 'until his lungs give out' so maybe there is authenticity in the slurring. I really wish the breakfast in bed had been toast and he'd rhymed that with ghost.>

headinhands Fri 30-Dec-16 12:18:22

I think the second verse is looking back at their beginning and written from the point they've been together for yonks.

poshwomanatchristmas Fri 30-Dec-16 12:22:44

He's still a slimeball perving at drunk women and thinking he's a gent cause he makes breakfast in bed (with a kiss on your head, all breathy and slurry.)

IWouldLikeToSeeTheseMangoes Fri 30-Dec-16 12:30:25

YADNBU. I fucking hate this song. Does watching someone who's pissed and throwing up really make you go "wow I just realised I'm so in love and can't wait to spend the rest of my life with you." James Arthur also has a face I would never tire of slapping. Think it's that creepy pout. And he is definitely wearing mascara. But not in a sexy smudged eyeliner Jack Sparrow/Russell Brand way more in a "raided my mum's make up bag" way.

NancyPickford Fri 30-Dec-16 12:32:35

Hate this song so much! The first verse is sung as if he is unable to form consonants properly, like he sings with his mouth hanging open. Want to stab him with a plastic fork when it comes on the radio.
