Yes, I am going to go a little pop on you right now. Just because I am indiebitch, doesn’t mean that I don’t enjoy other genres at the same time.
I remember falling in love with Maroon 5 back in 2002, when they played at CU for the New Student Welcome concert on Farrand field. Most people didn’t know who they were, but we all fell in love with Adam Levine. (I mean, how could you not?)
I then tried to see them in 2003 in Las Vegas where they were slated to open for John Mayer, but cancelled at the last minute to go play Saturday Night Live. I was pissed because I drove 12 hours to get there and then they bailed! I was secretly pleased when they sounded like shit on SNL.
I am not really a fan of Payphone (overplayed), but I absolutely love their version of Kiss (last song on this album). Seriously, even if you don’t like their pop singles, take a listen to Kiss, it’ll get you groovin’ in your chair.
