My brother Nick has been a John Mayer fan forever, so I frequently find myself listening to him. We both agree he's a complete douche as a person, but I find myself increasingly not hating Mayer's music. Case in point; the lyrics for 'Whiskey, Whiskey, Whiskey' are freaking ridiculous (a major refrain for this track is "whiskey whiskey whiskey, water water water, sleep"), but it's musically lovely to do shitty pedantic grammar work to. Do I gain any music cred back by saying in this same playlist I also have The Civil Wars, Angus & Julia Stone and The Audreys?
To cap this off, how proud was I to hear a song that's not 'Somebody I Used to Know' by my boy Gotye in Suits the other day? Pretty proud.
