John Mayer

From time to time I'll blog about my favorite musicians, here we go with my first one: the oh so talented and gorgeous, John Mayer.

Guitar Magazine described him perfectly, "John Mayer is mother fucking famous. He's also a rarity-a modern pop
idol that aspires to musical greatness."

I absolutely love John Mayer. There's gotta be something wrong with you if you can't find something to appreciate about him. At only 32, he is a true guitar genius. His song lyrics are thoughtful and witty and his melodies are catchy and flawless. He has won several Grammeys, recorded 7 studio albums, including 2009's "Battle Studies", and he has composed countless catchy soulful hits. Not to mention he is H-O-T. Just check out these pictures! Whew! I cannot get enough of his tousled hair and soft features.

I wish I could pick a favorite song but that is nearly impossible-I love them all. Right now these are a few of my faves: Assassin, I Don't Trust Myself with Loving You, Stop this Train, Wheel, Hummingbird, Back to You, etc..... His lyrics really speak to me unlike many other musicians today and I can usually find at least one or two lines in every song that I love.

Check out these lyrics from War of my Life:

I'm in the war of my life
At the door of my life
Out of Time and there's no where to run away
I've got a hammer
And a heart of glass
I got to know right now
Which walls to smash
I got a pocket
Got no pill
If fear hasn't killed me yet
Than nothing will
All the suffering
And all the pain
Never liked to label

Unfortunately for John Mayer, his personal life has been quite the roller coaster and he's been in a series of high-
profile relationships that never lasted very long- Jennifer Love Hewitt, Jessica Simpson and Jennifer Aniston.
I'd like to think that he just waiting for me. : ) Well, John I just moved to LA so come and find me! In his latest
interview in Rolling Stone Magazine, he says, "I’ll be happy when I close out this life-partner thing. Think of how much mental capacity I’m using to meet the right person so I can stop giving a fuck about it."

"My greatest honor is to look through people's Myspace pages under influences to see Buddy Guy, Stevie Ray,
Eric Clapton and John Mayer. It's like... it's unbelievable to me. Those kinds of connections are
very meaningful to me." -John Mayer


  1. I am a big fan of John Mayer too and agree with everything you said about his talent, but he sounds like a total male slut and I really can't bear to watch him perform. He looks like he's having an epileptic seizure.

    I still love the over-played "Your Body is a Wonderland".

    Favorite lyrics:

    "Dreaming With a Broken Heart"
    When you're dreaming with a broken heart
    The waking up is the hardest part
    You roll outta bed and down on your knees
    And for the moment you can hardly breathe

    People have the right to fly
    And will when it gets compromised
    Their hearts say 'move along'
    Their minds say 'gotcha heart'
    'Let's move it along'

    And when I need a power song on the treadmill, "Go" gets me going.

    Can't wait to read about your other favorite artists.


  2. Yes, I love "Wheel" and I was going to write another post about airports and there is a great line in that song about airports. I've seen him in concert 4 or 5 times now and his performance really doesn't bother me...i guess i just love him that much! haha
    And yes, he may be a male slut but he doesn't try to be anything else. He doesn't pretend to be something different. If we date, please never tell him that u think he is a male slut..ok? haha
