Simple Profound Thoughts From A Former Surfer
Hawaii native Jack Johnson sings very simple songs. Sung to simple acoustic guitar, his almost workaday lyrics transcend the every day. The single Better Together captures true love through the imagery of simple daily objects and actions in a way rarely found in today's pop/folk world of over produced commercial music. Today's Countdown selection does much the same with simple lyrics about the thing we cherish most, our kids -These are the gifts we keep / And this is the morning that we breathe / And then we see / These moments are the only gifts we need. This song takes me back to those simple feelings I remember watching my kids, now grown, at Christmas and knowing that that feeling, that sense of unfettered joy and love was all I would ever really need to give my life meaning. Jack Johnson - In The Morning.
