Life Is Wonderful



I first discovered Jason Mraz about five years back. He's always been a favorite of mine. More music that just makes you smile. You fall in love with his charming lyrics, and his happy melodies.
He has this unique style, the way he mixes his fast paced vocals with the slight reggae sound every so often, but the specail thing about "Mr. A-Z" is that he sounds better live than recorded. If you haven't heard a live cut, you haven't heard Jason Mraz. That's very unique, and makes him even more fun.

I heard "Life is Wonderful" for the first time last summer when I borrowed his album "Mr. A-Z" from the library. You'll want to sing along the minute he starts the chorus of "Ahlalalalalala-life is wonderful". What struck me most about the live version I found (recorded originally on T.V. in Korea), is that he and his band-mate play the horn section. . .with their voices! It's amazing. They sound like they're playing instruments! Very cool stuff.

I reccomend that you check out all of his stuff. He is truely a great and unique artist, and will most certainly bring a smile to your face.

His Albums, In Order of Release:
Waiting For My Rocket To Come
Mr. A-Z
We Sing, We Dance, We Steal Things

Enjoy!

Life Is Wonderful-Live


Life Is Wonderful Lyrics

It takes a crane to build a crane
It takes two floors to make a story
It takes an egg to make a hen
It takes a hen to make an egg
There is no end to what I'm saying

It takes a thought to make a word
And it takes some words to make an action
It takes some work to make it work
It takes some good to make it hurt
It takes some bad for satisfaction

La la la la la la la life is wonderful
Ah la la la la la la life goes full circle
Ah la la la la la la life is wonderful
Al la la la la

It takes a night to make it dawn
And it takes a day to make you yawn brother
And it takes some old to make you young
It takes some cold to know the sun
It takes the one to have the other

And it takes no time to fall in love
But it takes you years to know what love is
It takes some fears to make you trust
It takes those tears to make it rust
It takes the dust to have it polished

Ha la la la la la la life is wonderful
Ah la la la la la la life goes full circle
Ah la la la la la la life is so full of
Ah la la la la la la life is so rough
Ah la la la la la la life is wonderful
Ah la la la la la la life goes full circle
Ah la la la la la la life is our love
Ah la la la la la

It takes some silence to make sound
It takes a loss before you found it
And it takes a road to go nowhere
It takes a toll to make you care
It takes a hole to make a mountain

Ah la la la la la la life is wonderful
Ah la la la la la la life goes full circle
Ha la la la la la life is wonderful
Ha la la la la la life is meaningful
Ha la la la la la life is wonderful
Ha la la la la la life it is...so... wonderful
It is so meaningful
It is so wonderful
It is meaningful
It is wonderful
It is meaningful
It goes full circle
Wonderful
Meaningful
Full circle
Wonderful

Oh, wow. That was too cool! And, it's true; when Jason broke out in his "trumpet" solo, I couldn't help but chuckle.
That song is so pretty! So easy going, so carefree. I really liked that!
