John Mayer- Why Georgia

I like his growl, and the soft whisper that makes me bend in to hear, i love how his cult of sensitive young girls is so emo, but how he doesn’t get the props emo does, i like how he makes certain words last 4 or 5 syllables, i love the pseudo rock break out a minute in, i like the video with its split screen and how he dances in it- a little kick, a little shimmy, some head nods, a half hearted attempt at the pogo. I like him.

it was only cool to appreciate the low key prettiness of the Carpenters when they could no longer record, and it is uncool to like John Mayer now-but he has that attractive earnestness about him, like he believes every word- even if that isn’t cool, it is engaging.
