50: Jason Mraz: I’m Yours (2008)
Few songs capture the joy of being head over heels in love as brilliantly as I’m Yours by Jason Mraz. Described by the songwriter as being “about finally giving into love and life’s possibilities”, it’s a reggae-tinged slice of summer romance that became a Top 10 hit in the US. Bouncy and upbeat, I’m Yours is one of the best love songs to speak of going with the flow of a relationship and not overthinking things. In this age of mindfulness apps and yoga retreats, it’s a message that’s more relevant than over.
