Lewis Capaldi’s story about being inspired by his gran’s death is funnier than it should be
Lewis Capaldi‘s heartstring-tugging ballad Someone You Loved sounds like a classic break-up song, and we don’t doubt that many a newly single person has sobbed themselves to sleep over it, but it seems we’ve all misunderstood.

“Your classic death …not coming back, sort of thing.“
That certainly sounds like your classic death.
“Just the ticket – my gran’s dead.”
It clearly occurred to him that the anecdote was a bit odd.
‘As fortune had it my gran had just died’ is the weirdest thing I’ve ever said in an interview https://t.co/G64YkOIFoj

London Lofty asked a highly pertinent question.
With all this Brexit shit going on, have we still forgotten to Knight Lewis Capaldi. https://t.co/bckqVSV5A4

Knight or not, we can’t help feeling that Lewis Capaldi’s musical talent is a heavy loss to world of stand-up comedy.
As a treat, you can listen to Someone You Loved and think about Lewis Capaldi’s dead nan.
