    Yeah. I know. icon_razz.gif

    I got a serious crush on this guy. But just ignore his rugged good looks and his pro surfer physique and just listen.

    His genre is a bit hard to pin down. It's like a meld of beach and acoustic soft rock. Beach music is usually associated with ska (which I like) and reggae but his (and a handful of other artists) is different. It really does remind you of the beach. icon_smile.gif At least for me it does.

    Gah, maybe I'm a tad too romantic. LOL. But certainly I don't consider that a bad thing. icon_razz.gif

    It's all been about Madonna and Janet Jackson here and frankly, no offense, I hate disco and pop music. icon_razz.gif Too much tension behind the sweetsy cutesy lyrics in the music industry these days. Sometime people just need to relax. ;)

    For those with slower internet, I provided a playlist:



    For those with high-speed connections, I recommend the videos:

    Jack Johnson - Better Together


    Jack Johnson - Sleeping Through The Static (Song about the US-Iraq War)


    Jack Johnson - Free (GLBT folks can totally relate to this song. Hah!)


    Jack Johnson - Banana Pancakes


    Jack Johnson - If I Had Eyes


    Also check out Donavon Frankenreiter, Ben Harper, G. Love & Special Sauce, and Matt Costa.

    I second the zzzzz* boring icon_rolleyes.gif

    To each his own, personally I got tired of hearing the same crap every day at Hollister over the holiday season. The female management staff always took the remote and reset the playlist to nonstop Jack Johnson, Jason Mraz, and Yellowcard. Bleh!

    i wanna play banana pancakes for Z. some morning when we're lazing around in bed.

    His music is repetitive but I like it, he always makes me feel like I'm sittin by the beach with a surfboard I don't own eating a fish fry I don't know how to make with hot surfers that I don't actually know.

    It's not supposed to be club music. Different types of music for different moods.

    I love the guy. However, I think he looks a tad mongoloid.

    But favorite song is Bubble Toes.

    Jack rocks!
    all surfer dudes rock!

    growing up in a surfer town, is the best. just wish there more gay guys who get the mentality and vibe. instead of being shallow, look at me, look at my possessions, i take myself so seriously. oh well, one day.

    Wow, no love for Jack Johnson in this thread I see.

    I will certainly not get on the "Zzz" bandwagon. I would, however, be curious as to the reasons for some of those comments? Is it because it isn't club music, doesn't have a strong beat, because it's mellow?

    I'm a big fan of Johnson's music. Interesting lyrics (Bubble Toes is a great song), great sounds, and one of the best acoustic artists I've heard in a while.

    I am, however, a bit more of a Ben Harper fan. In the same genre, if a bit more towards the reggae side on occasion. I like Harper's voice a bit more than Johnson's. "I'll Rise" is a great song of his.

    I love JJ...he's my Hero. He's made millions of bucks on his records and is spending a ton of those same bucks on land preservation in Hawaii, living on like a bazillion acres that developers can never touch.

    ...and he has a TOTALLY AWESOME surfer joint down there.

    what's not to love?!?!

    haha, just because of this thread, I've been listening to JJ all morning.

    Forgot how much I loved Sexy Plexi.

    It has the same beat as it's a small world at disneyland.

    For a moment there, I thought I was the only one, LOL

    *smacks zimatar, trace23, jms84, and XRuggerATX*

    One thing I like about him, is he's totally environmentalist. tommysguns is right. A lot of his songs are green - 3 R's (Reduce, Reuse, Recycle) for example.

    Match that Maddona! icon_mad.gif

    LOL My thoughts exactly! Yeah one day...
