Top 10 Maroon 5 Songs: Chart Toppers To Shockers [Videos]

Maroon 5 can’t put a step wrong lately. While they always seem to be making the news, the worst that can be said about them is that sometimes their lyrics are a little odd.

With top 10 lists being all the rage these days, we’ve combed the web – from Billboard to Top 40 and Star Pulse to PopCrush and AXS – to bring you a range of thoughts on the top 10 Maroon 5 songs of all time.

10) “Harder to Breathe”

Peaked at #18 on the Billboard Hot 100 charts.

A little known fact about “Harder to Breathe” is that, although it sounds like yet another breakup anthem, it was actually written with their own record label management team in mind, who had been complaining that Maroon 5 hadn’t released enough singles. In a beautiful twist, this song turned out to be their breakout hit.

9) “Wake Up Call”

Peaked at #19 on the Billboard Hot 100 charts.

As Bustle says, “That any woman would ever cheat on the glorious Adam Levine, as is depicted in the video, is laughable.” This Maroon 5 song is convincing in its storyline and completely catchy, too. Good luck getting this one out of your head.

8) “Misery”

Peaked at #14 on the Billboard Hot 100 charts.

AXS has this Maroon 5 hit as yet another conundrum, with its bouncy music causing good moods and group singing all around, despite the overly depressing lyrics.

7) “Daylight”

Peaked at #7 on the Billboard Hot 100 charts.

“Daylight” is an unusual Maroon 5 song, as it combines a sweet tune with beautiful lyrics. Maroon 5 concentrated on doing some good with this song as well, releasing a couple of different versions with a more social outreach approach.

6) “Makes Me Wonder”

Stayed at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 charts for three weeks.

Maroon 5 pulled off the perfect mix in this song, managing to be both incredibly likeable, sexy, and dangerously angry the same time. Listen closely to the lyrics and you’ll realize the brilliance of Maroon 5, as they managed to get women worldwide swooning despite their questionable lyrics.

5) “She Will Be Loved”

Peaked at #5 on the Billboard Hot 100 charts.

This was Maroon 5’s first emotional song, and it seemed to bring out the sensitive side in anyone who listened to it.

4) “This Love”

Peaked at #5 on the Billboard Hot 100 charts.

Pop Crush had Maroon 5’s “This Love” in their #1 position, citing Adam Levine’s lusty lyrics, the keyboards, and the guitars, which make up the perfect combination for this song that was one of the most-played songs on radio in 2002.

3) “Payphone”

Peaked at #2 on the Billboard Hot 100 charts.

Pop Crush had “Payphone” a lot lower in the charts at #10, and credits the heartbreak in Adam Levine’s voice combined with the rhymes from Wiz for the song’s success.

2) “One More Night”

Stayed at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 charts for nine weeks.

While Billboard has this as the #2 Maroon 5 song, Bustle had it in top spot, citing it’s fun lyrics and the fact that it’s “the perfect windows down, hair blowing in the breeze and incessantly sticking to your lip gloss kind of song.”

1) “Moves Like Jagger”

Stayed at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 charts for four weeks.

Maroon 5 hit the jackpot with “Moves Like Jagger,” managing to get Christina Aguilera on board for this smash hit. While no one really knows what particular moves Maroon 5 and Xtina are referring to, with a song this good, it just plain doesn’t matter.
