Childhood tunes

Believe it or not, one of the first CDs I got as a kid was Maroon 5’s “Songs About Jane”. Angsty. Alternative. Songs you could jam and cry to. Today, I had this overwhelming urge to rock some old Maroon 5 (back when they weren’t cool). To this day, I still love this version of Maroon 5 way more than any of their new music.  Because my emotions were less complex than they are now… Here’s what my memories are of these songs:


In darkness, she is all I see
Come and rest your bones with me
Driving slow on Sunday morning
And I never want to leave

UGH so good


And sometimes it’s a sad song
But I cannot forget
Refuse to regret
So glad I met you
Take my breath away
Make everyday
Worth all of the pain that I have



I’m lifting you up
I’m letting you down
I’m dancing til dawn
I’m fooling around
I’m not giving up
I’m making your love
This city’s made us crazy and we must get out


I don’t know why I found this fun seeing as the lyrics are anything but. The beat though was the perfect pump up, belt out type song.
