Earlier today, a friend sent me a TikTok video featuring James Blunt talking about his friendship with Carrie Fisher and how he lived with her on and off while he was in Los Angeles recording music from 2002 until she passed away in 2016. Not only was Carrie Fisher his “American mother,” but she was also his best friend in many ways. It was extremely difficult for him to write a song about her, and it took him many, many years to complete it, but here it is. “Dark Thought” describes the moment when he first went back to her house after she died. I’ll include the song below, as well as the short clip featuring James Blunt at the bottom of the post. Enjoy, and keep a box of tissues handy. You might need them.
“Dark Thought” is about Carrie Fisher, who died in 2016.
