Jack Johnson's Best Song?


#1

Not hardcore lifting music, but dude is talented. This is my fav by him.


#2

terrible


#3

I prefer Sitting, Waiting, Wishing. I wish he had more songs like that.

Most of his other songs seem too bubbly.


#4

Have the balls to say what you feel like saying.


#5

Rodeo Clowns is pretty good .. but I like Breakdown the best (the remix from Handsome Boy Modeling School's album "White People" is great)


#6

I actually love Jack Johnson (but don't tell my lifting buddies -lol). First got into him when I saw the Curious George movie, then I hadda buy the soundtrack... after that, a few of my students copied his other discs for me. Great stuff, just puts you in a good (mellow) mood.

For you hardcore meatheads, just realize that relaxing is good for lowering your cortisol :wink:

I like Crying Shame and Breakdown.

Jack Johnson is awesome, it's awesome to relax to. No shit you're not going to listen to it while you work out lol.


#8

you're right marshall is way more talented.


#9

His music is great for just hanging out at the beach and having some drinks.


#10

My complaint about Jack Johnson isn't that his stuff is too weak or too mellow. There's a place for that, like everything else, in the big scheme of things. Rather, I think he's artistically meritless, terrible sounding, and bordering on retarded.


#11

Me too. I think he needs to stick to surfing. I don't think it was paying the bills for him like it was/is for Kelly Slater though.


#12

If he stuck to surfing for much longer the man would be dead. He ended his surfing career with an accident requiring 150 stitches and 2 front teeth.


#13

He still surfs Pipe, so I doubt that accident made him quit surfing professionally. I think that accident was (sort of) caused by Kelly Slater who yelled, "You won't go, Jack!" when Johnson was debating pulling out of a heavy pipeline drop. Surfing magazine did an article on it about 10 years ago.


#14

you bite your tongue, jack johnson is a stud. and i gotta say taylor and banana pancakes are my top 2


#15

Jack Johnson is great! I listen to all his albums.

My favorite has to be Taylor because it reminds me of a girl I had a huge crush on in highschool.

Can you guess her name?
