Well, some of my students called me (among many things) "Tacos". When he came over (I used to be in charge of the campus programming, so concerts, speakers, etc.) he wanted to do an impromptu song for us. So he asked for them to help put together a list of things (words and/or phrases) and he'd write a song about it, incorporating them all. One of my students was the first to suggest, and she said "Tacos and Mojitos" (mojitos is her nickname, so when we were together everyone called us "tacos and mojitos"). He liked that, I guess. That ended up being the "song" title and the chorus. Our nicknames were never explained to him, which is why I said "sorta". But, the context is what makes that song awesome. It became a running joke on campus, which was great because, again, only about 100 or so people actually knew the context, but thousands were singing it

yeah, bit of a stretch, i know.

I was dragged to his concert two months ago in Taipei (yes, he's popular in Taiwan) by a female friend. For the defense, he can sing really well and he put on a charming, energetic show. For the prosecution, his "musical theater" background is a big turn-off for me, and his somewhat harmless, generic, romantic music with uninteresting lyrics sinks the Titanic. Offensively inoffensive.

Jason Mraz-al-Ghul is alright, my friends worship the hell out of him though, so that gets a little tiresome.

I just did a Wiki search to see if that was his real name, and then I find out that he's actually Czech rather than Arab and you just made some kind of a Batman reference, and now I'm really pissed off at Jason Mraz.

Once you hear I'm Yours for the "a flobbity jillion"th time you get over it.

Sad, because I heard the full album once and really enjoyed it.

Tacos and mojitos; cerveza por favor; donde esta la biblioteca His impromptu songs are awesome.

I cannot tell you how long I've been waiting for a Mraz thread on here. I was going to make one years ago, but wanted to avoid ridicule . I've been a fan since 2003. There was a year or two where I didn't pay as much attention, but got right back into it. I love so many of his older/lesser known songs. I wish people would get into more than just "I'm Yours" (which every time I hear it now, I want to tear my hair out--it was a good song when I heard the first version five or so years ago). I've seen him three times, and am going again in August. He is probably a thousand times better live than on albums (but his albums are already amazing, so... ). He's touring with his best friend Bushwalla, whose music is pretty good and hilarious too.

Mraz only wished he could be this awesome:
