Duncan On Dumping Someone In A Song
August 24, 2006 – Top Of The Pops Online spoke with Duncan James in a Q&A and asked the former Blue singer if he could dump somebody in a song or use a song to explain why he dumped somebody.
“I think that’s cool. I think words are really powerful, and if you use your words carefully, it’s really important,” he said. “When I said about e-mailing, I’ve been e-mailing people in the past where I’ve had really troublesome things going on in my head and I’ve wanted to explain, and sometimes you just can’t talk to people in a way, so you can sit down and write an e-mail in the same respect as with a song, you can get what you want to say across in a lyric, and that’s kind of a bit easier, I guess. It’s good for you, because you’re getting it out of yourself, getting it down and writing it out on paper, so I think that’s kind of cute.”

I was so embarrassed,” Duncan later admitted. “A friend offered me a ticket at the last minute and I jumped at the chance to go. I’d never seen Madonna live before and I was mesmerized by her amazing body and performance. It was exactly at that point, when she was dancing right in front of me, that I couldn’t do anything but stare because she looks so incredible. That’s why I wasn’t dancing.”
