If I Ain’t Got You ♥

I’m surprised that I haven’t blogged about this song yet. This was one of Alicia Keys first big songs. In my opinion, it is also her most beautiful song. Although I do love Keys’ original version, I am even more in love with Maroon 5’s cover of the song. Why? Keys’ sings this song with a beautiful jazz back ground and an amazing jazzy voice to go with it, but there is absolutely nothing better than a man with a voice like Adam Levine’s singing a jazz love song with a simple piano background. Also, I prefer that Maroon 5’s version is in a bit of a higher not signature. Either way, they are both beautifully performed songs. I will post both up here for you. Take the poll and let me know which one you prefer!!!

P.S. Don’t you just think about that “somebody” every time you listen to this song?

Nothing Lasts Forever

Nothing Lasts Forever. I can relate to this songs (just like I suspect many others can), especially after the week I have had. This song is about the memories that we have from the significant memories that we have had with people who were special to us at one point in our lives or another. Maroon 5 clearly paints a picture of the brokenhearted feeling that one gets when something ends. It does hurt, life hurts. But we have to move on and learn to make new and beautiful memories. “Nothing Lasts Forever, but be honest babe, its hurts but it may be the only way”. Whether or not this song evokes tears or resurrects buried memories, hopefully this will become a timeless song that you can relate to.

 

Give A Little More

Maroon 5 + Adam Levine = Perfection. This equation is the reason for this groups success. Now, we all remember Songs about Jane, the album that launched their career  But is it the quality of the songs on that album or the beauty of Adam Levine’s voice that has kept us captivated for the past 3 or 4 other albums? Think about it, and while you do that, listen to one of my favourite Maroon 5 songs from their album, Hands All Over.
