Jason Mraz scoort in 2003 met The Remedy een eerste notering in de tipparade, maar pas in 2008 komt zijn grote doorbraak met I’m Yours. De single bereikt de vierde plaats in de Top 40 en is afkomstig van het album We Sing, We Dance, We Steal Things. Ook de opvolgers Lucky (samen met Colbie Caillat) en Make It Mine bereiken de top 10.
In 2010 krijgt Mraz een Grammy Award als beste artiest en wordt ook de single Lucky met een Grammy onderscheiden.

In 2012 verschijnt zijn vierde studioalbum, Love Is A Four Letter Word, waarvan de eerste single I Won’t Give Up de derde plaats bereikt.

Rough Water, samen met Travie McCoy, is in 2014 zijn zesde Top 40-hit. De single, eerder verkozen tot Alarmschijf, schrijft nog wel een record in de boeken. Het nummer is na twee weken al weer verdwenen uit de MediaMarkt Top 40 en is daarmee de minst succesvolle Alarmschijf die ooit in de Top 40 heeft gestaan.
In juli van dat jaar verschijnt het nieuwe album Yes!, waarop 14 nieuwe nummers staan. Hello, You Beautiful Thing verschijnt als eerste track van dat album.


Songtekst

I saw fireworks from the freeway
And behind closed eyes I cannot make them go away
'Cause you were born on the fourth of july, freedom ring
Now something on the surface it stings
I said something on the surface
Well it kind of makes me nervous
Who says that you deserve this
And what kind of god would serve this?
We will cure this dirty old disease
If you've got the poison I've got the remedy


The remedy is the experience.
This is a dangerous liaison
I say the comedy is that it's serious.
This is a strange enough new play on words
I say the tragedy is how you're gonna spend
The rest of your nights with the light on
So shine the light on all of your friends
When it all amounts to nothing in the end.


I won't worry my life away.

I won't worry my life away.


I heard two men talking on the radio
In a cross fire kind of reality show
Uncovering the ways to plan the next big attack
They were counting down the ways to stab
The brother in the be right back after this
The unavoidable kiss, where the minty fresh
Death breath is sure to outlast this catastrophy
Dance with me, because if you've got the poison,
I've got the remedy

The remedy is the experience.
This is a dangerous liaison
I say the comedy is that it's serious.
This is a strange enough new play on words
I say the tragedy is how you're gonna spend
The rest of your nights with the light on
So shine the light on all of your friends
When it all amounts to nothing in the end.


I won't worry my life away.

I won't worry my life away.


When I fall in love I take my time
There's no need to hurry when I'm making up my mind
You can turn off the sun but I'm still gonna shine and I'll tell you why

Because

The remedy is the experience.
This is a dangerous liaison
I say the comedy is that it's serious.
This is a strange enough new play on words
I say the tragedy is how you're gonna spend
The rest of your nights with the light on
So shine the light on all of your friends
When it all amounts to nothing in the end.

I won't worry my life away.

I won't worry my life away.

I won't and I won't and I won't
