We are going over Jason Mraz’s top 10 songs which are bound to make you look on the brighter side of life.
1) I’m yours
This popular ‘happy little hippy song’ from the album ‘We sing. We dance. We steal things.’ is the tenth best-selling digital song of all time in the US, selling over 12.2 million copies worldwide. Mraz says this is not a song about himself, it’s a song which people sing to each other and to themselves. Fun fact, it took Mraz 20 minutes to write this record breaking song.
Best stanza from this song:-
“I won’t hesitate
No more, no more
It cannot wait, I’m yours"
2) I won’t give up
“I write a lot of good songs, it’s not always for women, it’s for people in partnership; because sometimes our better half forgets their greatness and beats themselves up, so it’s important for us to love them into the person we know them to be” The most appropriate description of this song by the singer himself. This insightful track is very meaningful and inspirational.
A beautiful stanza from this song:-
“I won’t give up on us
Even if the skies get rough
I’m giving you all my love
I’m still looking up"
“Lucky, we have Jason Mraz as our artist”. Oh, what a feeling it is to be in love with your very own best friend, Jason knows the feel very well and sings his heart out in this song. He sang this song in collaboration with Colbie Caillat and their voices go with each other like bread and butter; this song made several international charts, peaking at No. 9 on the U.S. Adult Pop Songs chart.
A stanza from this one:-
“I’m lucky I’m in love
with my best friend
Lucky to have been
where I have been"
4) A beautiful mess
Another hit from the album “We Sing. We Dance. We Steal Things”. Definitely my favorite. Mraz says this song is about "giving yourself or your time to someone or something else." He makes an important point in this song, that despite the imperfections and the insecurities, it is absolutely worth the effort and wait to find your love.
Our pick from this song:-
“Well it kind of hurts when the kind of words you write
Kind of turn themselves into knives
And don't mind my nerve you can call it fiction
Cause I like being submerged in your contradictions dear
Cause here we are, here we are"
5) 93 Million Miles
A song about parents and coming back home. This song is a reference to the Earth's geographical location within our solar system, which is 93 million miles from the Sun.
“Son in life you're gonna go far
If you do it right
You'll love where you are
Just know that wherever you go
You can always come home “
