SONG: John Mayer

“Something Like Olivia”

In his last few albums, John Mayer has had this way of being slightly inappropriate without being completely offensive. I’m thinking of “Who Says” from Battle Studies where he sings, “I don’t remember you looking any better, but then again I don’t remember you” and of course, “who says I can’t get stoned, call up a girl that I used to know, fake love for an hour or so, who says I can’t get stoned?”.

And here, with this track from the new album Born and Raised, he somehow manages to be desirable to millions of woman while singing, “Well Olivia is taken, but a look like hers can be found from time to time. I’m thinking something like Olivia is what I need to find”. I’m falling for it at least…I love this song!

  1. Nice tune!! Enjoyed the video-i love watching musicians just hanging out & playing.

    I’ve gotta say, though, every time I hear this dude’s name I think about one of Ryan’s earlier recordings ( “Substitute Teacher Blues” – dont recall which album even tho it’s one of my faves), where in the intro Ryan talks about John Mayer being all over the radio & how Mayer talks about runnning down the halls of his old high school. I’ve listened to that recording, oh-prob @ least 50 times. It’s fuwnny how our brains associate certain things automatically. Literally–i saw Mayer’s name & that recording immediately began playing in my head!
