I'm Yours

Over the last few months, I have heard this song with this opening lyrics:-

Well you done done me and you bet I felt it
I tried to be chill but you're so hot that I melted
I fell right through the cracks, now I'm trying to get back

Before the cool done run out I'll be giving it my bestest
And nothing's going to stop me but divine intervention
I reckon it's again my turn to win some or learn some

But I won't hesitate no more, no more
It cannot wait, I'm yours

Oh, I'm yours
Oh, I'm yours
Oh, whoa, baby you believe I'm yours
You best believe, best believe I'm yours

You probably know what this song is and even the singer but you know, I have been trying like crazy to find out who the singer was. You can tell that I am not a music expert or listen much to the hits of today. But I liked this particular song and everytime I heard it either on radio or even been played in the shopping centres, I tried and wait for the announcer or the DJ to tell me who the singer was and what was this song called. For some reason, either the announcement came before the song or there was no announcement at all. I tried asking people but then I am not a singer and whoever it was that I asked will look at me blankly.

Yesterday morning, I heard it on tv and I rushed out and sat down and listen and watch the entire video and finally at the end of the video, it had the name of the singer - Jason Mraz and the name of the song - I'm Yours. I am ever so relieved. At last I know who this is and what the song is. Now, I can find the CD and upload it to my son's iPod.

It's very frustrating not to know something. When I checked up the singer and the song, I should have not been surprised to read about something which probably 99.9% of the world had known that this song was a huge international success.

Where am I going with this entry? I guess nowhere. Just to remind us all that in our haste to do our day to day life, there are many things out there which we will never know.

Sir, you can just google any of the lines with the word "lyric", and the result will show you the title of the song and name of singer :-)

Jewelle, Yes. But I didn't remember the lyrics. All I had was a tune in my head and some words of the lyrics. I tried what you suggested a lot earlier but didn't get anywhere. The lyrics I put up on my entry was the lyrics that I found after I know what the song was. I tried humming to the CD shops but they just looked at me blankly. My humming must be off tune....
I made a shortcut button to the voice-recorder/dictaphone function on my mobile to take down ideas while I'm on the move and sometimes good songs for identification later. One of these days I want to try shazam.com's music recognition.
