He became very popular when he wrote and sang the main theme of "Bridget Jone's Diary" film, "Everlasting love". By the way, he has said several times that he doesn't feel very proud of having done it. Even though, I'm sure he made a lot of money...
Besides, he has composed "Everything you didn't do", the song of a spot for San Miguel beer. Probably you remember it.
Nevertheless, I'm not only passionate about him for all those famous songs, but for others like those he composed for "Gran Torino" movie. This song moves me. I love his versions of classical jazz or blues themes, like "Fever" or "I have a kick out of you" or "Love for $ale". I usually use the last one in my classes to make a narrative activity.
But above all, I learn a lot every week when I listen to him on BBC Radio 2. He has discovered me many artists as Gregory Porter, Zaz, Nikita Mbula or Sufjan Stevens.
And that's the reason why he drives me crazy!!
