  • Jeff from Boston, MaI have no idea if this is true, but someone told me that Jason Mraz was in the studio working with a group of mostly African-American studio musicians, and felt that the musicians were a little wary of him (Mraz) being a not very cool-looking white guy wearing a pink shirt. On the spot, Mraz began to improvise this song as a joking way of showing them what he could do.
  • Taylor from San Antonio, Txthis song is freakin great everytime im in a bad mode i turn it on my ipod and im instantly cheered up
