Can we pretend that airplanes and the night sky are like shooting stars?

Why, yes. Let’s. What is it with this song? Sometimes a song can hit you and no matter what, it moves you. I don’t know what it is, but I love it. Maybe because given everything going on in the world, everyone can use a wish right now.

I even love the bit in Justin Timberlake and Lady Gaga’s skit on SNL. It is such a great song that the new band New Hollow that I heard in the store Justice sang it and I even liked that version.

It just goes to show that a great message delivered in the right way can resonate with so many different audiences on so many levels. A mesage of loss, redemption, and hope. We all could really use a wish right now. 🙂

Mayer? A New John’s in Town

John Mayer, yes he’s great and I love his work. But I am more proud of my cousin John Gurney and his band. Here is his Facebook fan page. You can listen to a few songs in the music player on the page.

He won the talent contest at University of Missouri last year and recorded these three tracks in St. Louis as part of the prize.

And a claim to fame of his is that he lives in Brad Pitt’s room at his fraternity house. Love it!

Go John – we are so proud of you and wish we could see you more.

John Gurney is a singer songwriter originally from Chicago IL. He currently attends the University of Missouri. His unique acoustic style blends pop, jazz and country influences all into one laid back sound.
