The band Maroon 5 formed in L.A. from an earlier band called Kara’s Flowers is one of the current top selling bands today. Maroon 5 started in 2001 and is led by lead vocalist and guitarist Adam Levine. The band members include Levine, Jesse Carmichael (vocals and guitar, keyboard), Mickey Madden (bass), James Valentine (guitarist), Matt Flynn (drums) and PJ Morton (keyboard). Maroon 5 has been producing hit after hit for over a decade. They won a Grammy Award for the best new artist in 2005 and have since won two other Grammy’s. They have produced a number of No.1 hits including “Moves like Jagger” and “One More Night”. Their single “Payphone” reached No. 2. With their various number of chart topping hits, we list the top five Maroon 5 songs in our humble opinion.

1. This Love
From the debut album “Songs about Jane”, this single is one of Adam Levine’s deepest and earliest offerings. It helped Maroon 5 win a Grammy for Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group with vocals.

2. Moves Like Jagger – featuring Christina Aguilera
A tribute to rock legend Mick Jagger’s swagger, this song was released from Maroon 5’s album Hands All over. It was a huge commercial success and has won numerous awards. The vocals of Christina Aguilera bring out this songs hard hitting beat.

3. Payphone – featuring Wiz Khalifa
Another of Adam Levine’s breakup classics, the song is catchy and was released from Maroon 5’s album Overexposed. The video was simple in its story and impressive using cartoon graphics. You could not help but root for the man to reach the woman he is trying to call.

4. Makes Me Wonder
This song released from the album It Won’t Be Soon Before was one of the band’s first no.1 songs. While Adam Levine writes eloquently about failed relationships and breakups, this song helped the band win a Grammy at the 50th Grammy Awards.

5. Sugar
This recent offering from the band’s album “V” is a pop sensation which celebrates love. The video was shot with the band “crashing” a number of weddings as a surprise musical guest. Unlike many of Adam Levine’s songs about breakups and failed love, this song celebrates love.
