Some thoughts about John Mayer
I pulled out one of my old favorites (You know, the kind that you listen to over and over again until the CD explodes in your car player) today, Room for Squares. This was one of the earliest of John's works, it put him on the music scene basically with a Kaboom! I love this CD, every stinking song, but there's definitely a good chance I will fall asleep to these 2 - his voice is so deep and slow..specifically City Love & Great Indoors. When I burn a CD, they are history, gonzo.
My Stupid Mouth I can really relate to mainly because it's my life in a nutshell. You don't know how many times I've been told to shhhhh and/or followed by some disapproving look by someone. I dunno, I kinda say what ever I'm thinking...could be my ADD which has followed me since Kindergarten. Battle Studies I enjoy listening to if I am pissed off at my Mate or going through a rough patch. He obviously wrote this after or during one of his many just didn't work out relationships..the title says it all. Continuum (Stop this Train & In Repair) and Heavier things (Clarity!) I also love most of the tunes on there, and then after that I just went cold with it.
Once he started wearing that long hair and stupid ranger hat, disappearing from the music circuit for a period of time...was it vocal cord issues? I just wasn't interested anymore, he kinda pulled a Johnny Depp. Just never worked again for me for some reason. I did attempt at listening to the one after that, can't think of it right now and too tired to look on iTunes. Oh hell, just saw it. Born & Raised.
...You'll be so good for me...
