British popster James Blunt's song You're Beautiful has taken a beating of late, with even the singer himself referring to it as "overplayed". But Britain's Daily Mail has revealed that the song might have miracle powers. Five-year-old Claudia De'Alwis, had been a coma for 10 days following a head-first plunge from a five-metre balcony. She began to awake after her favourite song came over the hospital radio - it was [James] Blunt's You're Beautiful. ... Claudia's father, Paul D'Alwis, 40 told the newspaper he was convinced it was the song that brought her around.
