John Mayer: The Heart of Life #MM

Monday, April 27, 2009

Yesterday, I have been watching Ghost Town on DVD and the song "The Heart of Life" by John Mayer caught my attention. It is the fifth single from his third album "Continuum" released on September 9, 2006. Song lyrics mean a lot to me, because like quotes they can lighten up the heart. The song is dedicated to our host LJ who has just lost her beloved furry kid, Mustafa. My heartfelt sympathy on your sudden loss, my dear.

John Clayton Mayer is a multi-talented American musician who made his official debut with the album "Room for Squares" in 2001. His musical preference went through a transition from acoustic rock to blues in 2005. Besides known for his great achievements in music that have him brought numerous awards, Mayer is also known for his romantic relationships with beautiful artists like Jennifer Love Hewitt, Jessica Simpson and Jennifer Aniston.

My middle son loves John Mayer.. I enjoy his music also --but didn't know this song. Very nice!!!! Is he still with Jennifer Aniston?

He's a very talented song writer. Although I think his stuff is at times overplayed on the radio ... or is he due for a new album?

Hi Rosidah, I'm now in for this game, first time. :) It's in my other blog. I learned something new here, the lyrics mode, I'll have to use too, space saver. Thanks again for sharing.

@ Betsy: The latest report I heard was that they broke up and he's currently dating some beauty paegant queen...???

@ Betsy: I didn't know that he was dating Jennifer Aniston!
@ Bob: I agree to you Bob, his lyrics leave a deep impression. I must admit that yesterday was the first time I heard him singing. So I don't know, if he's due to another album ;).
@ Rozella: Thanks for the update. I was getting curious :).
