Jason Mraz: Video Review by Mark Juleen

The Apartment Nerd on Jason Mraz’s live album – Beautiful Mess: Live on Earth

Jason Mraz - accessible, poppy, mainstream, and good for you

Mark Juleen, apartment nerd and music afficianado, is back with the basics. This time it’s a first for Passionati – a video interview. Thanks Mark for the interview and for not killing anyone while you were drivin’ ;). Jason Mraz’s Live album “Beautiful Mess – Live on Earth”. We’re not snob. Louis Armstrong said “Good music is what you like”. We’re not success haters. We live in the mainstream. We like good melodies and catchy music. We love Cat Power, Rufus Wainright, and Jason Mraz. All great song writers that make people happy. Check out Mark’s video review of the album and here’s a couple of bonus videos as well.

Worst “best” Christmas song

Cartman passionati

Why do you love Cartman’s “Oh Holy Night” rendition? Because its everything that most kids think about Christmas or what kids know about Christmas. His voice is awful and its Cartman’s voice – which you can’t do anything to but laugh frankly.

John Mayer’s new sound is reminiscent of Room For Squares?

John Mayer released his highly anticipated follow up to Continuum on Nov. 17Battle Studies.  The first single, “Who Says”, has some critics saying he’s “too pop” this time around.  Over the past decade fans of John Mayer have seen him turn to the blues, we’ve seen him hit the tabloids, and we’ve been able to enjoy this ride.  While John may not be the sound of choice for the masses, I believe we all have to admit he has a ton of talent and this record (“pop” or not) has a nice mix of old John, new John, and blues John.  John Mayer is a song writer first and foremost, so listening to what he has to say is always an experience.

Editor’s Update: Here’s the new story on John Mayer’s thoughts on the new album “Battle Studies” – it has a video too!
