As pop/rock band Maroon 5 drops their fifth studio album V (available September 2), what better way to get in the Maroon 5 mindset than examine the best, most memorable songs that the band has delivered since 2002? Over the course of four albums (Songs About Jane, It Won’t Be Soon Before Long, Hands All Over, and Overexposed), Maroon 5 have delivered some of the most alluring songs – records – of modern times. Here are 12 of the best – the crème de la crème.
1) “This Love” (Songs About Jane)
“This Love” will always remain a, if not ‘the’ crowning achievement of Maroon 5’s catalogue. Maybe it’s just the sound and catchiness of the song itself, or maybe it’s the suggestive, sexy nature of the music video. The most sexed-up line: “I tried my best to keep her satisfied / keep her coming every night...” Ooh la la!
