#26 – Jack Johnson – “Good People” – (2005)

This has been kind of a chill week, song-wise, hasn’t it? Jason Mraz, Michael Franti and now Jack Johnson? Well chill was in during the oughts. There are other really good songs from Jack Johnson from this decade, but this one kind of stands above the rest for its combination of awesomeness and radio-friendliness (I’ve never heard “Banana Pancakes” on the radio). This song is actually a “protest song” about television violence – but that kind of gets lost among the acoustic guitar and relaxed nature of Johnson’s singing. It’s a great song, whatever it’s about.
