    its partly the Zuba’s, and the disco ball doesn’t hurt but, I really like that New Light song.

    I know how this goes, first it was Justin Timberlake, then Bruno Mars, and now it’s gonna be John Mayer that Imma be listening to... all it takes is one song for me, and I think John nailed it. I hope this is his new direction, because, ya know, I like dancing and disco and sh!t.

    Pretty sure most of his guitar fans hate it though, which is usually a good sign.

    Well, he’s still not as pretty or as cool as Bruno, but it is decent pop.

    So weird. If you would have told me I’d listen to a JM song four times today... I would’ve asked you what you were smoking.


    You think Bruno is pretty?

    As I said before, play the song and don’t watch the video! The song stands on its own, it doesn’t need visual representation!

    If he’d shelled out a million dollars for a fancy directed video, with actresses/actors a lot of people’s opinions would be altered!

    It’s all about perception!

    I like John Mayer and Bruno Mars. I’m just not normally a disco guy; I could never get my finger pointing right.

    Aside from the keyboard track, I think it would fit right in with the Battle Studies album. His early songwriting especially has a great storytelling aspect to it. Mix it with that poppy sound, some tasty and tasteful instrumentation, and slick production. It's a formula that sucks me in every time. I feel like he lost a lot of that quality with Born and Raised, and Paradise Valley, but he started to get his groove back a bit with The Search for Everything.

    I've been a fan since '02-'03 or so, when a guitar buddy hipped me to "Neon".




    JT and Bruno both have done some great tracks as well.

    Although sonically it's a little like elevator muzak to me, but it does remind me that his true talent is singing.

    How can you say that when we live in a world where Black Eyed Peas hasn’t broken up yet?

    Like that’s a bad thing?

    what can i say, he’s not as good as he says he is and i get a real ‘fakin the funk’ vibe off him and his band.

    track suits are just sweatsuits for chavs.

    Interesting. Who plays it has no bearing on my decision to buy a guitar. I’m not a single coil guy, but I thought his tone on the solo was impressive.
