Gravity is a simple song but it's great and everyone knows it. I would've put Walt Grace, but this greatest hits album needs some more life to it and Walt would put people to sleep right here. Walt Grace's Submarine Test 11. Vultures was an early introduction to the Trio and his move to more blues in his albums. You're gonna live forever in me is a great way to end an album. His music is Truly from the heart and that's why he's my favorite.
I don't need to say more. Something along those lines and that is pretty accurate. Daughters Live at Nokia Theatre 4. In the Blood is just incredible writing. This is how I broke my list down, your turn.
Wheel is some of his best writing. Slow Dancing in a Burning Room 8. Whatever he puts out is fine to me. You're in control of what songs make it to his greatest hits album. Stop this train, in the blood, who says, edge of desire all fall under the lyrical story telling portion of my list.
Dear Marie is probably his best all-around song on that album. No such thing brings back the nostalgia almost went with why Georgia here but had to compromise Neon for the amazing guitar work. . Personally I know this last album was special to him and what a nice gesture of a song and album to a former lover and an experience most everyone has dealt with which is relatable. War of My Life is great writing, and has the catchiness like the rest of the album which went back to his more pop type of feel. Knowing what the album was about also and ending with that song is very nice.
I don't think John will ever want to release a Greatest Hits album of less than 15 songs for this reason - too many songs mean a lot to him and it's hard to define him as an artist with so few songs. Your Body is a Wonderland 3. Gravity is so incredibly simple but so powerful. Stop This Train is some of his most mature writing and one of his more emotional songs. Half of My Heart 6. Can't tell you how many times I've listened to that especially on vinyl and had to just sit there for a minute when that song ends.
Neon because of that god damn guitar. Some of the shows, including Vegas and I think one of the ones in Europe, have been pretty Greatest Hits-y in the way that they cover the spectrum well. The good thing is that Mayer has such a stacked catalog of quality music that this is tough to make out a correct list of Greatest hits. Love on the Weekend But a realistic greatest hits album would be 1. Still Feel Like your Man 11. But also Whiskey Whiskey Whiskey and In Your Atmosphere.
Queen of California is an incredible jam. I would have also put Wheel and 83. . . .
