5.0 out of 5 stars Love February 29, 2008
Verified Purchase
Lovely. Without knowing who, the song had me. It'd taken me. It's taken me. I adore this song. Yes, it's different from his previous music, but in a beautiful way. The gentle picking of the guitar coupled with the sweet sway of the strings is heaven. The song's message is capturing, too.

When I first heard he had another single out, I wasn't really interested. Until by chance I heard it, and now I've fallen in love.

4.0 out of 5 stars Reviews are missing the message of the song... May 19, 2008
I think some of the other reviewers are missing the message of the song. The key to this songs overwhelming success (which it is) is the simplicity of it. Yes, the "say what you need to say" chorus is repetative, for a reason. It takes you to a place that sets a certain mood and keeps you there. A very, very romantic song for those who notice it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful Melody June 30, 2008
By D. Le
His voice is so smooth like butter. I love the melody and I don't care about the fact that he repeats the same lyrics over and over again. It's a sweet, short song that ingrains itself into your mind, ensuring that you'll be repeating the lyrics for days on end.

4.0 out of 5 stars right thing, right time January 6, 2009
If the song's message resonates with something going on in your life, it's going to resonate in a BIG way, because it is a powerful elaboration of that theme. (The repetition is part and parcel of that.) It was an excellent match for the story of the "Bucket List" movie and some people will find it applies to their lives as well as the lives of the characters in the film.

If, however, it doesn't speak to what's happening in your life, you're going to find it trite and monotonous.

I think this says less about the work itself than about different people's receptiveness to different things at different points in their lives. For me, this song did something important and useful. For someone else, it's just going to seem simplistic and boring. Those are both valid viewpoints, I think.

But clearly there were enough folks in the first category to make it a decent-sized commercial success.

Just sayin.

Not a HUGE John Mayer fan, but this is his favorite song of mine. The flow and melody are outstanding.

I bought this song because I heard it on the radio and I like it. If I wasn't going to give it a 5 star rating, I never would have bought it.
