I'm Yours

Fans of Jason Mraz will appreciate this video, although even if you haven't tuned your radio to a pop station in the past few years, you might still get a kick out of it.

Which is more charming, the fact that he has pretty good chops on his ukelele, or that the "lyrics" are, while entirely indistinguishable (the boy speaks Japanese), still remarkably reminiscent of Mraz's singing?

If you've been living under a rock and haven't heard the original, check it out:

Now that I hear them back to back, I think I might like the kid's version better. There's something oddly wonderful about it - his pure enjoyment of music, the lyrics mangled yet still weirdly recognizable (it's not like Mraz's lyrics make sense, anyway), his flying little fingers and funny facial expressions.

Love it.
