The Artist: Sara Bareilles (feat. Jason Mraz)
The Song: "Bad Idea"
The Spotify Link:
Where you heard it first: I've been kinda keeping an eye out for new stuff from Sara Bareilles ever since I found out she'd written the music and lyrics for a soon to be on Broadway musical (based on the film Waitress). This is one of the first songs off the album What's Inside: Songs from Waitress. They're her own personal interpretation of songs from the show.
Why it’s been stuck in your head: This is one of two duets on the album with Jason Mraz. It's quite possible our listeners don't know about my extreme Mraz obsession, but Kelly can painfully testify to it.
Why you recommend it to our listeners: It's catchy in a Sara Bareilles pop/Broadway musical kind of way. That's always a winning combination in my book.
