Weekend Video - Lucky

It's taken a while for me to find a favorite summer song this summer, but it finally arrived in the form of "Lucky" by Jason Mraz and Colbie Caillat. I was just introduced to Jason Mraz's music (by my daughter, Josie) and it's fun, melodic, and relaxing, but it's the catchy tune and harmonies and the richness of Colbie Caillat's voice in particular that make this rather sweet song about your true love being your best friend (or vice versa) such a winner.

Apologies for the rather pedestrian video up top, but for some reason the official video of the song has not made it to YouTube. Needless to say, with such a wonderfully romantic theme there are plenty of tribute versions where you can just feel the pleasure of expression, such as with the duo of AJ Rafael & Cathy Nguyen, seen here performing in a bathroom!

Bigboymigoy and proud2bmorena did an equally good job:

As did Jessica Roscoe and Brent Rice:

And Llex and Andrea had particularly promising visuals for a summer video, but perhaps needed just a little more practice:

As always, I'd love to hear your vote for best tribute. And have a Happy Labor Day Weekend!

#1 made me smile the most (smile sweet, not smile ha ha). I'm glad to hear this is someone else's summer song as well!
