Jason Mraz songs are almost always upbeat. He sings about love. He's all about togetherness. His voice is jazzy, but you can hear a lot of reggae influence in it. He is a young-ish looking guy, which the ladies appreciate. Yet his songs about love and romance are nevertheless mature.

- "The Remedy (I Won't Worry)" This song was co-written by music production team The Matrix, which was responsible for Mraz's first top 20 single on the Billboard Hot 100, peaking at number 15. It finds Mraz singing the song really fast — almost as though he's rapping. "If you've got the poison/I've got the remedy."
- "I'll Do Anything" Jason Mraz sings this is a jazzy voice, with warmth and sincerity. It's a song of devotion. It features words of true love for another.
