"Love is a 4 Letter Word" – Jason Mraz

I’m a huge Jason Mraz fan and I pretty much love everything he’s done, so I was wondering how in the world was he was going to top his latest cd “We sing we dance we steal things” – and the accompanied “Live On Earth” version…

And I gotta say: Bravo! It’s his best. By far. It seems like a perfect culmination of all the messages he’s consistently sung about through his first cds, and has created fantastic new melodies to put them to. Absolutely love it

Anyone else hear it yet?

Jason Mraz is awesome. WHen I first started learning the piano a few weeks ago, the first song I wanted to learn was any of his. I ended up learning “I won’t give up” and I am learning others as I go. Great artist.

It’s hard to say I have an all-time favorite Jason Mraz song… but if I were forced to choose one, it’d certainly be http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7l74d1fmZbw

I’ve never actually taken the time to look into Jason Mraz more. This is pretty smooth man, thanks!

This is a great song of his. Love these lines:
“Why do we lay all these traps
We put them right in our path
When we just wanna be free”

and

“Wherever I’m going I’m already home.”

Actually, I think its the worst work of him. There is nothing to explore in his lyrics. Titles like “freedom song” or “I wont give up” already state what it is about. My new favourite is definitely Ben Howard, he’s just my age and is already so good.

@luigiblue, I absoultely love that whole concert as well! I felt like the Geek in the Pink at one point.. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4X_AgLfpndM

@ojai, check out that song above ^^^

@mybee42, awesome line! That’s what I’m sayin, this dude on on par with Bob Dylan in terms of song writing abilities… I really dig

I can’t walk through life facing backwards
I have tried, I tried more than once to just make sure
And I was denied the future I’d been searching for
I spun around and hurt no more
By living in the moment

@kolli, Freedom Song was actually written by a dude named Luc Reynaud. And are you serious when you say there’s nothing to explore? The opening line to “I won’t give up” is

When I look into your eyes
It’s like watching the night sky
Or a beautiful sunrise
There’s so much they hold
And just like them old stars
I see that you’ve come so far
To be right where you are
How old is your soul?

How do you get more poetic in song than that?

@sumtinprophetic, How did you add quotes into your reply?

hahaha fuck, I just tried showing you, but it automatically hides the script.. But you can use basic HTML to mess with font on this site. To make the quote, just use “blockquote”
