On Jason Mraz: Live in Manila

3 minutes read

Mraz is such a great performer that his concerts are actually super worth-it.

Anyone who knows me well enough should know that I am a really big fan of Jason Mraz and his music. Ranging from slow acoustic to upbeat funk, his musical variety is only upstaged by his incredible lyrical mastery. His war against unhappiness rages on in the world as he continues his tour.

I was lucky enough to score some last-minute barely patron seats for his concert last May 14, 2013 at the Araneta Coliseum, and it was well worth it. Not only does he not sing his songs the same way, he sings some fresh unreleased tracks.

LOVE is a Four-Letter Word

Here are some of the songs I loved during the concert, most of which were in his new album LOVE is a four-letter word that I just ignored previously. These are just samples for fear of copyright issues.

Unreleased Tracks

I also liked one of his unreleased songs, “Who I Am Today”. I was able to find a crappy audio recording of it:

Who I Am Today [Unreleased]

I wasn’t able to find any audio recording of this one song though, “3 Things”. I do have a video recording of it (Yes, I did that thing where people record concerts, but with good reason!).
