I Think I Can… I Think I Can…

Maroon 5 – Payphone

Published May 21, 2012 - 3 Comments

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?
