I thought I was listening to Dave Matthews the first time I heard No Such Thing. A blockmate had to tell me, “That’s not Dave Matthews. That’s John Mayer.” And of course, I replied, “Who the fuck is John Mayer?”
I googled and there he was… the singular perfection that no amount of future bad publicity can ever change.
Since 2001, there were times that I forgot who Dave Matthews is, but not a single day that I do not remember the genius that is John Clayton Mayer.
If I had to use just my fingers to enumerate my favorite songs of his, the songs would be…
My Stupid Mouth
Back to You
Friends Lovers or Nothing
& (my most favorite!!!)
They say he always includes neon in his setlist so I am preparing myself to sing my heart out. “When sky blue gets dark enough to see the colors of the city lights… a trail of ruby red and diamond white hits her like a sunrise………… she’s always buzzin just like neon… neon…” I guess my friends are also preparing to carry me to the nearest hospital just in case I faint out of immobilizing euphoria!
John Mayer: Live in Manila is just a few days away and I’d like all of you to experience his musical genius with me. No. I don’t have the money to buy tickets for all of you. Hehe. So, I’d like you all to join the Manila Concert Scene: John Mayer Live in Manila Contest by clicking on this link.
Let me motivate you some more…
