To celebrate the release of ‘Last Train Home,’ and the announcement of Sob Rock, we thought we’d break down our top favorite John Mayer tracks.

Obviously, with this track, we’re talking all-time classic territory. Everyone who grew up in the early 2000s knows this song it’s both nostalgic, and one of the best love songs of our time. It made all of us fall in love with John Mayer, and that’s something that’s never gone away.
Now yes, technically, this is a Tom Petty song. However, John Mayer recorded a version at the infamous Nokia Theatre that has taken on a life of its own. It packs the nostalgic punch of being a classic Tom Petty song while also having the new-age acoustic, softer twist from John Mayer.
‘Waiting On the World to Change’
This track is one of hope for a better tomorrow. It’s always connected with us, especially with all the tragedy we’ve grown up around going on in our world. We interpret the song as a call to action for the younger generation to be the change they wish to see in the world.
‘Love on the Weekend’
This is one of the newer tracks. Straight off of his last studio album The Search for Everything, ‘Love on the Weekend’ is a perfect example of the best of John Mayer. It’s the soft acoustic sound we can’t ever get enough of from him, along with being a radio darling.
We had to close out this list with our all-time favorite John Mayer track. It’s such an instant classic. We’ve long considered this one of those songs that just breaks our hearts, then puts it back together due to the sweet sound of John’s voice.
