Maroon 5 - Makes Me Wonder

With the release of their second album, It Won't Be Soon Before Long, Maroon 5's popularity continues to skyrocket. This isn't surprising once you consider that their catchy tunes are inspired by likes of pop icons such as Prince and Michael Jackson.

According to Wikipedia,

The first single, "Makes Me Wonder", was released to radio March 27, 2007. The making of the music video was previewed on MTV's Total Request Live, and premiered on the show March 29. The song debuted at number 84 on the Billboard Hot 100, the lowest debuting single of the group's five chart entries. In the first week of May, the single skyrocketed from a lowly position of 64 to #1, the biggest jump in Billboard history. "Makes Me Wonder" has also achieved #1 on Billboard's Hot Digital Songs, Pop 100, and Hot Dance Club Play charts.

The video is just as hypnotic as the song. Not only is frontman, Adam Levine, a snappy dresser, but let's just say that if flying was actually this sexy (with the hot flight attendants and the security checks and all), I wouldn't have anything to complain about. :D



(I know 7aki Fadi wasn't originally too keen on this song, but I find it to be pretty groovy so I figured it was worth showcasing again in its own post.)

I'm with isam, Maroon 5 are my pop band,I like all their songs,that SweetDreams on theotherwoman,Vox on the Internet,has posted.

There is quite a similarity in their music as Michael Jackson's,as you stated,Dave,and I've liked his music,since he was in the Jackson 5 group with all his brothers.

But Dave,please stop drinking Mountain Dew,it can cause men not to be able to father children,from what I've heard.I'd look into that if I were you.

I gotta admit Dave, this song grew on me, it's been playing on the Radio a lot.

And it helps that he looks hot in the video, lol.

Crystalbell, thanks for your concern about my sterility, but I already have two kids and I'm not looking to have any more. :) I have cut way back on the Mountain Dew, however, just for other health reasons.

7aki, I like his haircut. Perhaps I should cut my hair that way.

7aki Fadi said...

That hair cut is hot.

I bet you the hair cut would look good on you.

Do it but you need a plan to keep the chicks away ;). Or not :p
