I have a love/hate relationship with the songs Maroon 5 choose to release as singles. Half the time, the singles are great: “She Will Be Loved,” “Never Gonna Leave This Bed,” and “Payphone” are some of the best pop songs by any artist of the last fifteen years.
But they also release singles that, regardless of chart placings, feel mediocre: “If I Never See Your Face Again,” “Misery,” and “Love Somebody” all fell flat. Exacerbating the matter, they usually have album tracks that should have been singles instead. “The Sun” would’ve made a great fourth single off Songs About Jane instead of “Sunday Morning.” Likewise, “Stutter” should’ve been a huge radio hit from Hands All Over. As such, whenever I buy a new Maroon 5 album, the subsequent singles’ releases can be confusing.
However, none of this has mattered lately, as Maroon 5 have been on a roll. After missing the top 10 with six singles in a row, Adam Levine ended up on The Voice, and the band released “Moves Like Jagger,” a fun, slinky duet with Christina Aguilera, that reignited their chart fortunes by hitting #1 and kickstarting an impressive eight consecutive top 10s in a row.
