Before one of his concerts in Texas, Jason Mraz shares his dream in an interview with the Dallas Morning News

If you could choose anyone to sing a duet with, who would it be?

Weird Al Yankovic. I grew up really loving his music and laughing at his jokes. He came up on the radar a couple of weeks ago with a new album, and I was really touched at his ability to sustain. I think he has had a hit in the last four decades: the ’80s, ’90s, 2000s and the teens. There are only two other artists who have done that: Michael Jackson and Madonna.

Sounds like an excellent dream. Here’s hoping the best for ya. If you’re looking for a song, may I suggest “It’s All About The Word Crimes” ?
