Oh man...this video is when I fell in love with Adam. That skinny angry man was singing his heart out and I loved it.
I bought Songs About Jane before it sold a bazillion copies. (Yes, I'm proud I was ahead of the curve.) By the time the album blew up I was already on my 2nd copy because I'd worn the 1st one out taking it in and out of the cd player/travel case. It was for real so scratched that it wouldn't play. That's how you know that you have a good album.
I'm all about artists growing and evolving. But I would love it if Maroon 5 went back to their Songs About Jane roots for their next album. It's not that I haven't loved their later albums, it's just that I haven't loved them as much.
But regardless of the direction that band goes in, I will continue to be a fan. I will continue to love Adam. And I will continue to rewind the bridge from "Harder To Breathe" video when Adam is angrily singing at the wall because that doesn't stop being hot.
