Mayer Hawthorne – Her Favorite Song

Mayer Hawthorne has come a long way since his 2008 debut, and right now, he says, “Life is great.” He’s released two well-received full-length albums, had songs licensed for film and television, and toured the world with Bruno Mars, Foster The People, Erykah Badu, Janelle Monae, and the late Amy Winehouse. His latest, Where Does This Door Go, features a host of top-flight production work from Pharrell Williams, Greg Wells, Jack Splash, John Hill, and Oak (of Oak & Pop), who contributes the smooth and powerful single “Her Favorite Song.” The single premiered in May of 2013 and became an instant hit. Billboard called it “expansive,” and New York Magazine said “…sounds like seventies smooth-rock kings Steely Dan.” The track is the follow up to the first teaser for the album, “Designer Drug,” which topped the Hype Machine charts and gave Mayer the title of “Most Blogged Artist” on the site. The full album will be released on July 16th on Republic Records.

Mayer Hawthorne – Her Favorite Song Ft. Jessie Ware

Mayer Hawthorne reveals the music video for his latest single “Her Favorite Song,” a duet with songstress Jessie Ware, which is lifted from his forthcoming album, Where Does This Door Go, due in stores July 16. On the electric guitar-driven, rock-vibed tune, Hawthorne soulfully conveys his passion about what “she” loves while Ware spreads her airy vocals on the chorus.
Her Favorite Song is about being frustrated with the opposite sex, It’s about searching for that somebody that makes you happy,” Mayer told Singersroom. “Everybody has been in that situation where they feel really frustrated and this is a song about finding an escape for that.”

Mayer Hawthorne Ft. Jessie Ware – Her Favorite Song Lyrics:
Friday night and the scene is bright at Avalon.
I walk straight to the bar and a party dress, yes.
I told the bartender ‘pour a shot and make it strong’.
Because she need it, tearing up.
She proceeded to be drunk.
You can see it, tearing up.
In her eyes.

But when she gets home.
She puts her headphones on.
She plays her favorite song.
And fades away.
And when the music’s on.
She can do no wrong.
And she feels safe and calm.
And it’s okay.

And she says.
The world keeps turning, life goes on.
Yeah, she says.
The world keeps turning, life goes on.

Night before, had a date with a boy from Hayden Park.
Said he’d meet her at the diner at 9 o’clock.
Let the boots out lined and laid on extra don.
She got a table set for two.
But he never made it through.
And she tried to play it cool.
Now she cries.

But when she gets home.
She puts her headphones on.
She plays her favorite song.
And fades away.
When the music’s on.
She can do no wrong.
And she feels safe and calm.
And it’s okay.

And she says. The world keeps turning, life goes on.
Yeah, she says. The world keeps turning, life goes on.

You got to shake it off, shake it.
You got to shake it off, shake it.
You got to shake it off, shake it.
You got to shake it off.
You got to shake it off, shake it.
You got to shake it off, shake it.
You got to shake it off, shake it.
You got to shake it off…
