“93 MILLION MILES”-JASON MRAZ
On the heals of Phillip Phillips comes another “Home” song, but this one is 93-million times better.
Actually, the song’s parent album (Love Is a Four Letter Word) has been out since the beginning of this year but Jason’s record company is just now pushing this beautiful ballad as his next single. The acoustically-driven “93 Million Miles” flows so effortlessly from beginning to end — punctuated with a Dorothy Gale-like axiom that is not-so-hidden in the middle-eight.
Using astronomy as an analogy, Mraz shines a loving lyrical light on the love of a mother, the wisdom of a dad. But be it your parents, a friend, a place or someone who is in your heart 365/750, “home” can be a very powerful, moving concept. And Jason does wonderful work of melding words and music into a heavenly homage to home.
