Retronaut Favorites: Maroon 5

Published on 1 September 2021 at 10:22

I first found out about Maroon 5 when I was little. The earliest memory I have of them is seeing the music video for “This Love” countless times during my childhood.

I always remembered hearing that song growing up, but I realized how much I loved their music when their album, "Hands All Over" came out and it was all I listened to at that time.

That album came out when I was in 6th grade, and I remember listening to it when I was working on my schoolwork for online school.

This was during the time in my life when I left public school to start online school. It allowed me to have the time to really find the music I connected to. Since I had the time to explore, I started to discover all the bands I truly loved.

This ranged from Maroon 5 to Red Hot Chili Peppers to Queen to Foo Fighters to Neon Trees to The Hives and many more.

I’m not insanely into the genre of pop rock, but I’ve always loved Maroon 5 because of seeing them at such an early age. They're an artist I associate to my childhood, so they'll always be an artist that's special to me because they were one of the first bands that made me realize that I love music.

They've made albums in different styles, but I listen to the earlier catalog. Specifically, Hands All Over and It Won't Be Soon Before Long. I remember having a love/hate relationship with V, but when I rediscovered that album, I felt differently about it.

As many people know, I listen to music in a lot of ways, so I feel differently about what I listen to, depending on my mood. Some albums I listen to and I like it, but I don't love it. Then, I'll relisten to it on another day and love it. Relistening is very important because sometimes the only thing preventing you from enjoying an album is your mood.
