Tune in Tuesday (1)

Tune in Tuesday is a weekly meme, hosted by Ginger at GReads, where bloggers can share their love of music.

It’s my first time participating in this meme!  I just knew I had to participate this week because I get OBSESSED with songs (um, I’m still obsessed with Gotye’s “Somebody That I Used to Know” and it has been MONTHS since I first heard that song…) and I just needed to share my current obsession.

So right now I am IN LOVE (sorry about the all caps, but I’m even thinking in all caps so my writing, therefore, reflects that) with Jason Mraz’s song, “I Won’t Give Up.”  I’ve loved Jason Mraz for about 10 years, and even though I think the guy is a bit too thin these days, I don’t think he’ll ever disappoint me with his music.  Here’s the official video of “I Won’t Give Up”:

When I was looking for that video on YouTube the other day, I came across a cover of the song by these two extremely talented girls with beautiful voices. I’m now obsessed with them, too.  Here’s their cover:

If you’re more of a YouTube or internet user than I am, you’ve probably heard of these girls, but if not, they’re Lennon and Maisy Stella and here is the video of theirs that went viral earlier this summer:

I just think those two are super talented and I can’t wait to see their musical careers grow!

What songs or artists are you currently obsessed with?  Let me know, or leave a link to your Tune in Tuesday post in the comments and I’ll stop by your blog!

    AH! I love Jason Mraz, too! He did a concert at VT back when I was a freshman. Most amazing awesomesauce concert I've ever heard – I actually didn't get to go but somebody recorded a wicked awesome version that I got later on. He is truly amazing and such a cool, down to earth kind of guy.

    I agree with you, though. He's not looking so… healthy? these days. But his voice is just as awesome as ever. : )

      He played at OSU one year, too, but I decided to go out of town with my boyfriend at the time, who ended up dumping me about a month later. I still wish I would have gone to the Jason Mraz concert instead! I will see him live one day!

    I love Jason Mraz. Not a big fan of the beard- a bit creepy.

      I agree–that beard and his long hair, plus the fact that he's so skinny these days? Not a good look. But I love his music! ;)

    I love Jason Mraz. The Call Your Girlfriend video you posted is brilliant too – I don't have a clue how they do that without messing up!

    I'm not really a fan of Jason Mraz but I do love watching covers of songs, everything from the really talented all the way to the ridiculous.

      I love covers, too! I'd love for Lennon and Maisy to make a CD of all their covers. I'd listen to that nonstop!

    I am not much of a you tuber so I hadn't heard of those girls, good find! I love Jason, but I do wish he was eat more and maybe shower a bit more too.
