Tune In Tuesday: Maroon 5

April 24, 2012

Let’s just get real for a second, ok?

We need to discuss the matter of Adam Levine.

Now, we all know that Adam Levine is a nomalicious piece of man-cake, yes?

YES. WE DO.

If for some reason you are feeling excluded by my use of the royal we, then let me present Exhibit A:

Look at the smile. So swoon-worthy. And he can rock a cardigan like a boss.

But, okay, you’re not convinced. I understand.

EXHIBIT B:

I mean, c’mon. You cannot deny the yumminess of his man-cake.

God, that sounded really dirty. But you know what I mean. (Yeahhhh you do.)

But in addition to being a beautiful specimen of man, I also really dig his voice. I’ve been a Maroon 5 fan since the Songs about Jane days, and say what you will about the band or roll your eyes at their music—whatever makes you happy. But their songs are catchy as hell and you know you turn that shit up when you’re driving around. And their newest song “Payphone” featuring Wiz Khalifa is not different.

It’s definitely more on the slow jam side, but I like a good slow jam. Especially heading into the summer.

Also, I should mention how much I love the fact that the song is about a payphone of all things. Because I’m pretty sure there are not very many of those in existence any longer. For some reason the novelty of a song being about a payphone in 2012 really amuses me. And I really hope that during the songwriting process some PR/business-type person was all, “Do we think this song will resonate with the youth today? I mean, do they even know what a payphone is?” And then Adam Levine was all, “Who the fuck cares, it’s a great song! And I’m pretty and on The Voice so it will sell, man. Calm yourself.” And that was that.

    I’m not a fan at ALL of “Moves like Jagger” so it makes me happy to hear songs like “Payphone” from M5! 😀

    I think the man is beautiful, but his music never really grabbed me. I’m not sure why. Of course I’ll sing a long in my car when it comes on, but I don’t own anything by him. I wonder why that is :-\
