I’m not always the biggest Maroon 5 fan. It’s basically a hit and miss thing when it comes to their music. Some of it I like… some of it annoys me. When I heard their latest, Payphone, on the radio I was pleasantly surprised. It’s kinda catchy. I really didn’t listen to the words very closely, though. So when I bought the song on iTunes and heard the chorus I literally stopped what I was doing and looked at the track… “Did he just say what I thought he said?” Yup! The radio version is a little different than the iTunes version… or the video version!
There are actually two videos for this song… one lyrical, and the other essentially a movie production. While the movie-like one is quite a video, the lyrical one clears up any confusion about the meaning of the song. Guess which one I prefer?
