Song of the Day #3,066: ‘Don’t Wanna Know’ – Maroon 5 feat. Kendrick Lamar

maroon_5Maroon 5 have become one of the more reliable hit-makers in pop music today, good for at least one memorable jam per year. Over the past five years, they’ve delivered ‘Moves Like Jagger,’ ‘Payphone,’ ‘One More Night,’ ‘Daylight,’ ‘Maps,’ ‘Animals,’ ‘Sugar’ and 2015’s ‘This Summer.’

‘Don’t Wanna Know is their first 2016 single and its just harmless and catchy enough to make some Billboard waves. This week it’s at #10, right above D.R.A.M.’s horrific ‘Broccoli.’

More enjoyable than the song is the cute video, which features the band as Pokemon Go characters. It’s a nice reversal from the usual naked Adam Levine shots (the ladies may feel differently) and includes a number of celebrity cameos.

[Intro]
Oh hey
Oh, oh hey
Oh, oh, oh hey
Uh oh, uh oh

[Chorus: Adam Levine]
I don’t wanna know, know, know, know
Who‘s taking you home, home, home, home
And loving you so, so, so, so
The way I used to love you, no
I don’t wanna know, know, know, know
Who’s taking you home, home, home, home
And loving you so, so, so, so
The way I used to love you, oh
I don’t wanna know

[Verse 1: Adam Levine]
Wasted (wasted)
And the more I drink the more I think about you
Oh no, no, I can’t take it
Baby every place I go reminds me of you

[Pre-Chorus: Adam Levine]
Do you think of me? Of what we used to be?
Is it better now that I’m not around?
My friends are actin’ strange, they don’t bring up your name
Are you happy now?
Are you happy now?

[Chorus: Adam Levine]
I don’t wanna know, know, know, know
Who’s taking you home, home, home, home
And loving you so, so, so, so
The way I used to love you, no
I don’t wanna know, know, know, know
Who’s taking you home, home, home, home
And loving you so, so, so, so
The way I used to love you, oh
I don’t wanna know

[Verse 2: Adam Levine]
And every time I go out, yeah
I hear it from this one, I hear it from that one
That you got someone new
Yeah, I see but don’t believe it
Even in my head you’re still in my bed
Maybe I’m just a fool

[Pre-Chorus: Adam Levine]
Do you think of me? Of what we used to be?
Is it better now that I’m not around?
My friends are actin’ strange, they don’t bring up your name
Are you happy now?
Are you happy now?

[Chorus: Adam Levine]
I don’t wanna know, know, know, know
Who’s taking you home, home, home, home
And loving you so, so, so, so
The way I used to love you, no
I don’t wanna know, know, know, know
Who’s taking you home, home, home, home
And loving you so, so, so, so
The way I used to love you, oh
I don’t wanna know

[Verse 3: Kendrick Lamar]
(Oh hey)
No more “please stop”
No more hashtag boo’d up screenshots
No more tryin’ make me jealous on your birthday
You know just how I made you better on your birthday, oh
Do he do you like this, do he woo you like this?
Do he lay it down for you, touch your poona like this?
Matter fact, never mind, we’ll let the past be
May be his right now, but your body’s still me, woah

[Chorus: Adam Levine]
I don’t wanna know, know, know, know
Who’s taking you home, home, home, home
And loving you so, so, so, so
The way I used to love you, no
I don’t wanna know, know, know, know
Who’s taking you home, home, home, home
And loving you so, so, so, so
The way I used to love you, oh
I don’t wanna know
I don’t wanna know, know, know, know
Who’s taking you home, home, home, home
And loving you so, so, so, so
The way I used to love you, oh
I don’t wanna know

[Outro]
Oh hey
Oh, oh hey
Oh, oh, oh hey
Uh oh, uh oh

    That is a cute video. The song doesn’t do much for me though. I wish they would return a bit more to their jazzy roots
