"Curbside Prophet"

"The Remedy (I Won't Worry)" is the first single released by American singer-songwriter Jason Mraz from his debut album Waiting for My Rocket to Come in 2002. The song is about a good friend of Jason's, Charlie Mingroni, being struck with cancer and how it changed Jason's outlook on life. Occasionally, while performing this song during his shows, Jason would include a singalong with the audience to Oasis's "Wonderwall." This song was his first Top 40 hit, reaching #15 on the US Billboard Hot 100. He would not have a second until 2008's "I'm Yours."

Music video[edit]

The video, directed by Dean Karr, starts with Jason Mraz performing a concert. He then walks (in dog slippers) on some sort of farm. He then grabs a set of car keys and gets in his "Mrazda." (1962 Buick LeSabre 4 door hardtop). He then calls a whole bunch of roosters to get in the car. He pulls away from the farm and begins to drive through a neighborhood. He continues to perform on stage. He then walks on a sidewalk, where he makes eye contact with a girl holding a basket of eggs. The girl slips on a banana peel and drops all of the eggs. He continues to walk on the sidewalk. While walking, he grabs a flower from the ground and slips the flower into the barrel of a soldier's gun. He then runs into two twin boys and he lets them try on his red hat. He continues to perform and the camera switches back and forth between all previous shots. The video ends with him getting out of his car and he tips his hat towards the camera.
