Song of the Day #2,276: ‘Animals’ – Maroon 5

maroon_5Maroon 5 reaches the Billboard top ten for the second time in the past month, first with ‘Maps‘ and now with ‘Animals.’

You can’t deny the ability of Adam Levine and company to churn out one hit after another, though I’ve never liked any of their smashes as much as the entirety of their debut album, Songs About Jane.

After watching him on so many seasons of The Voice, it’s hard to look past his snarky ultra-competitive jokester persona to buy him as (in the case of this video) a deranged stalker.

Levine sure loves to pair himself with naked supermodels in his videos. I guess that’s one of the perks of being the front man for a popular band.

I wonder if his band mates ever ask to get in on the action. More likely they’re just counting their blessings that he has yet to go solo.

[Chorus]
Baby I’m preying on you tonight
Hunt you down eat you alive
Just like animals
Maybe you think that you can hide
I can smell your scent from miles
Just like animals
Baby I’m-

[Verse 1]
So what you trying to do to me
It’s like we can’t stop, we’re enemies
But we get along when I’m inside you
You’re like a drug that’s killing me
I cut you out entirely
But I get so high when I’m inside you

[Pre-Chorus]
Yeah you can start over, you can run free
You can find other fish in the sea
You can pretend it’s meant to be
But you can’t stay away from me
I can still hear you making that sound
Taking me down rolling on the ground
You can pretend that it was me, but no

[Chorus]

[Verse 2]
So if I run it’s not enough
You’re still in my head, forever stuck
So you can do what you wanna do
I love your lies, I’ll eat ’em up
But don’t deny the animal
That comes alive when I’m inside you

[Pre-Chorus + Chorus]

[Bridge]
Don’t tell no lies, you can’t deny
The beast inside
No girl don’t lie, you can’t deny
The beast inside
Just like animals
Just like animals

[Chorus + Bridge]

    I too long for a return to the band’s more jazzy, less poppy sound, but it doesn’t seem we are going to get that anytime soon, not even in the non-singles of the albums.

    What…. is with all that blood?? Just watched the video without sound, and yikes… As for their songs, I have been disappointed in the two singles from the new album, but I loved their last album. And I love Adam.
