Who's to say
What's impossible
Well they forgot
This world keeps spinning
And with each new day
I can feel a change in everything
And as the surface breaks reflections fade
But in some ways they remain the same
And as my mind begins to spread its wings
There's no stopping curiosity

I want to turn the whole thing upside down
I'll find the things they say just can't be found
I'll share this love I find with everyone
We'll sing and dance to Mother Nature's songs
I don't want this feeling to go away

Who's to say
I can't do everything
Well I can try
And as I roll along I begin to find
Things aren't always just what they seem

I want to turn the whole thing upside down
I'll find the things they say just can't be found
I'll share this love I find with everyone
We'll sing and dance to Mother Nature's songs
This world keeps spinning and there's no time to waste
Well it all keeps spinning spinning round and round and

Upside down
Who's to say what's impossible and can't be found
I don't want this feeling to go away

Please don't go away
Please don't go away
Please don't go away
Is this how it's supposed to be
Is this how it's supposed to be

Takes me back to when my children were toddlers and we would watch Curious George. Just for that it is a 9.

Had to confirm I was hearing the 'Main Mix' and yes it is...much thanks William and Alanna for playing this one.  JJ's music just has that island vibe, and I love it.  It's a 9 for me and LLRP!!
Kamaaina!  I can hear the ukulele influence ...

Jack Johnson has completely disappeared from the RP- programming grid.
Option 1 - By bad luck, for the RP has already "gone out of style" (out of fashion)
Option 2 - Forgot to send share

LOL! True enough.{#Lol}
I gave it a 5 as a stand-alone, as if I hadn't any clue of his other compositions. 
Nice, I like it. 
My little lad loved Curious George so I am afraid that this song holds a special place in my heart.

Why is a song ruined because Fraterinties like a band? You ever think that maybe if you have similar taste in music as the Fraternities then maybe they are not all bad? Hey I got an idea! Maybe we should have some sort of club. It should be a group of people all about the same age, that like the same things, and have the same goals and aspirations... oh no wait, thats what a Fraternity is. I am not saying they are all good, but do not hate something or discredit something just because that is what everyone else does. I am in a Fraternity, and there are people I didnt like within it, but to say an entire principle or idea is bad simply because somebody pissed you off in a sign of close minded ignorance. There are good and bad things/people everywhere you need to learn to be more accepting, and so do many Fraternities

Yes, many times they ruin many things; young girls' self perceptions, and some really good music just to name a few. (not complaining personally about the former, just seen it happen wayyy too often)

How can you guys knock Jack Johnson? He knows he writes songs that sound the same and he doesn't give a crap! He's great. Has a great voice. Has fun songs and they are a pleasure to the ear to listen too! Bravo Bill! To put Jack right after CSN&Y! That was a great two-fer! As for all you naysayers... well
Violation of Rule #1 of Artistic Merit (Music Edition): Be depressing. He's also sailing pretty close to the wind on Rule #2: Mumble.
I listen to Radio Paradise to get away from the every day radio song. Thanks for making me think I was listening to a Fm radio station.
"Please allow me to introduce mys. . . " Oops. Right lead in, wrong song.

Exactly.

I guess the same could be said for Cat Stevens and Jeff Buckley and Rufus Wainwright, etc. So? Nice to have consistency.

Actually that's on the last page! You could be an editor. Still, it cracked me up.

Looks cool, plays well enough, sings nice-ish but...I feel it too. It's so recognizable yet so dull. The unlife of the Coke-surf-beach party from hell. So, so, boring
Good god, if you're going to play this song, play the version by Sugar Ray called "When It's Over." It's a much better song than this sappy ripoff.
I get the same feeling from Jack Johnson songs as I do from Hootie and the Blowfish songs... none. 3.
I want to like his songs, but most of them irritate me for some reason. Finally, this song changes that. Excellent.

Vacuous at best. Sounds like the guy who hogged all the beach parties. Only there's no salt spray and tequila.
not diggin this
What's really interesting to me about Jack Johnson is that he's so easy to recognize despite his songs being kind of generic (in the nicest way possible though.)
*sniff* We nicknamed our 15-month old daughter "George" because she reminds so much of Curious George in the movie. Oh man. I'm at work and now I want to go home and give her a hug. :(
