Maroon 5 is hugely popular, especially with lead singer Adam Levine‘s popularity on the TV show The Voice. The newest single by Maroon 5 is Payphone.
The first time I heard the song I thought, “Am I hearing these lyrics correctly?” The song is a little confusing; I mean the lines in the chorus say,
I’m at a payphone
Trying to call home
Let me outline some of the issues here:
- Adam Levine has piles of money
- He can afford the change for a phone call
- If he was in a public phone booth, he would get mobbed
- He has a smartphone! (maybe two?)
Okay I joke but… seriously?! Meanwhile, on another musical front, the song has a great beat and will surely stay on the charts for a while. Now how do I get my phone number to Adam Levine?
(I will warn you that the video is violent in nature)
