Teri wrote last week to ask why there wasn’t any notice that Jason was going to perform on “Ellen” with Colbie Caillat. That’s a very good question.
I did get an email last week announcing that there’s a new Jason Mraz shirt for sale – which is actually a drawing of President Obama, and not really that much of a Mraz shirt at all – but I got nothing about any TV appearances.
Here’s an open letter to whoever is in charge of Mraz’ website and email blasts:
Dear Sir or Madam,
It seems you are having trouble keeping Jason’s fan base updated on his schedule. If you are in need of some extra help to keep things moving, please drop me a note. Because it’s such a worthy cause, I’ll only charge you half of my usual web service fee. Actually, throw in a few free tickets and things, and we’ll call it even.
Wet Wet Wet: Another 80s band Mraz could cover.
I didn’t hear about it until yesterday, but Jason was on the Ellen show Wednesday where he performed “I’m Yours” and then got dunked into a big water tank thing – Brady Bunch style – for charity.
The performance and the dunking are on YouTube already in case you missed it, and I’ll say that even if Mraz wasn’t the one in the tank, it would be fun to watch just because the chick who’s trying to dunk him has really terrible aim.
And would it be sacrilegious to say that I’m getting a little tired of hearing “I’m Yours”? I mean, it’s a great song, but he does have others, and I don’t want to get so burned out on it that I can’t enjoy it anymore. Can we ween the general public off of that one and on to “Make It Mine” or something fresher?
Jon Baron got me listening to classic hits of the 80s yesterday. Now I want to hear Jason cover some Tears for Fears, “Head Over Heels”. He can add that to his other cover songs of the 70s and 80s: Blitzkrieg Bop, Down Under, Summer Breeze.
Don’t take my heart, don’t break my heart, don’t don’t don’t throw it away,
