I have tickets to take my daughters to see Jason Mraz next month, so I've started to spin his tunes.

I have to say, his new album Love Is A Four Letter Word is extremely upbeat, positive, and really good! Yes, I know, it's not prog.

He will be this generation's James Taylor. He knows how to spin a lyric and wrap a song around it.

If you like your pop music smart, melodic, lyrical, and well played, you should give this CD a listen.

Check out 93 Million Miles for a great pop song, and perhaps Who's Thinking About You Now as a more poignant unrequited love song.
