This past week Jason Mraz’s song I’m Yours became the longest running song on the Billboard Top 100. 71 weeks on the chart. That is pretty incredible when you think of all the songs that are released on a daily basis. When I first heard I’m Yours, about two years ago, I fell completely in love with it. The tempo, the words, the feeling it gives me to sing it. I think it’s a great song.
In a review posted on AbsolutePunk.net, Tony Pascarella writes “Providing the carefree soundtrack to your summer, Jason Mraz combines the playful lyrics he’s always sported with lush instrumentals on his new disc, We Sing, We Dance, We Steal Things. Roll the windows down and belt out the faster songs, and pull that special someone a little closer for the slower ones; you’ll both be hooked on this CD.”
So take a few minutes and enjoy the last days of summer with one of my favorite songs. “I’m Yours” on YouTube.
