An album track Ed Sheeran did, that he asked Mayer to do the solo for. The story goes John did two, one he deliberately did was a semitone out here and there, that really didn't sound right, he sent it to Ed, gave it a few minutes and then sent him the "real" one, with a message "Just kidding!"

The song he got his first (oops, I might have meant THIRD) Grammy for, Daughters.

His intro when he did it live basically says all the girls he'd ever dated, had Daddy issues, that had messed them up, and that he'd spend ages trying to fix, although other people thought it was about something else.

That’s a damn good song.

So's this...

He does quite a few songs that you won't find on his albums. Here's a few...

This was the end title song he did especially for the film Bucket List, it's also been used in a couple of other movies like Jackie Chan's reboot of Karate Kid, I think. A song called "Say"
