Top 10 Best Maroon 5 Songs

This legendary band has been keeping our playlists lit for over 20 years. From the minute Maroon 5 dropped "Songs About Jane," we all knew they were something special. And since then, they've been dishing out hit after hit.

The band's catalogue is a treasure trove of hits - each song a bop in its own right. Whether you're into pop anthems that get you dancing or emotional ballads that tug at your heartstrings, Maroon 5 has you covered. Picking favorites is like choosing between diamonds. They're all precious.
The Top Ten
1 She Will Be Loved

This music was playing in 2004 when I broke up with my boyfriend. When he said, She Will Be Loved, it felt like a message that I would find love. I met my real soulmate later and got married.

This song was beautiful and heartwarming. I loved it from the first chord. My friend told me, She Will Be Loved, because I was very emotionally hurt at the time, and I just stopped crying. Then she sang me the song. She is my best friend ever.

I love her to pieces. I want to help her now because she's facing issues. So, I'll tell you this: you will be loved. There's someone out there, and you will be loved.

2 This Love

I'm probably one of the biggest Maroon 5 fans, or at least in the top 100. This song is by far my favorite song on any of their albums and overall. It has such meaning and is so deep in emotion as it really shows Adam's relationship with Jane.

Additionally, there is a great variation of instruments used in This Love, which adds to the creativity and awesomeness of this song. Well done, Maroon 5.

This has to be the most iconic song Maroon 5 has released. I have loved it since I was very young. Out of the entire Songs About Jane album, if not more, this has to be the most recognizable and one of the greatest songs they have come out with.

This love for Maroon 5 has taken its toll on me, but I won't say goodbye anymore. Oh, I'm just not as good as them. But I love this song! I sang it to my mother when I was trying to tell her which CD I wanted. It was my first CD.

3 Payphone

Ah, so satisfying, catchy, good, and not to mention it has meaning. The first time I listened to it, I was like, "Woah, Maroon 5 is getting better and better." Wiz Khalifa also adds a nice rap twist to it, creating an epic break-up song.

I know it's new, but this song is better than "Moves Like Jagger." Seriously, that's the only Maroon 5 song I hate.

4 Moves Like Jagger

The song is amazing and would easily catch the attention of many people. The beat of the song is catchy. The lyrics are seductive to listen to, and Adam Levine's voice makes the song complete and perfected.

To make it better, Christina's voice grounds it with the near-ending climax of the song. Moves Like Jagger is a very addicting song.

I am a huge Maroon 5 fan. I love most of their songs, but this song is my favorite by far. I love the way it is sung, with or without Christina. The tune brings a smile to my face and makes me shake it and show my Moves Like Jagger.

I've got them moves like Jagger!

5 One More Night

I play the violin and can play One More Night. This song rocks, as do Payphone and Moves Like Jagger. But One More Night is my favorite song. Adam Levine, you rock.

I think you're very cute and sexy. I want to marry you. I love your tattoos. They make me smile. Peace out! I love you. Maybe we can go on a date someday. You're my favorite band!

This vote is so close between Daylight and Payphone, yet One More Night gets the vote. The words are so amazing, and he is so convincing when he sings them.

I switch radio stations until I find Maroon 5. I love that voice.

6 Misery

This song should be in the top two, either in front of or after She Will Be Loved. Either way, I don't understand why Payphone and Moves Like Jagger are in the top three. They are just pop hits and don't have as much meaning as some of Maroon 5's other songs, like This Love, or Won't Go Home Without You.

This song is great. When my friend played it on his phone, I said, "I like that song. Can you play it again?" Then I downloaded it on my phone, and I always play that song several times. I really like this song. Maybe "Misery" is in first, haha, just joking!

7 Harder to Breathe

Good God, it's at number 12. Why do people have such horrible taste in music? Three songs above this one are horrible (the ones I have actually heard). One More Night wasn't that bad, She Will Be Loved was soft and kind of boring, Payphone is terrible, and Daylight is so boring.

But this song was amazing, very funky like Maroon 5 songs should be, and rock-driven.

Best song ever. To be honest, I had almost forgotten about it, but then I heard it come on the TV. That's when I remembered just how much my twin sister and I used to love this song. I can't get it out of my head and could listen to it over and over.

8 Won't Go Home Without You

Great song that reminds you that there is always a chance for redemption, even when you mess up. Good vocals. The melody is strong, and the instrumentals are smooth. Maroon 5 is one of the best bands of this generation, without a doubt.

The video is so sad. I heard the name of the song, and I knew it would be great! Absolutely brilliant, hands down, Maroon 5's best song! And that's a big deal because they've got a lot of great songs. I, Adam,

Maroon 5 has a lot of great songs, but the truth and emotion in these lyrics, combined with an amazing instrumental that mirrors the greatness of The Police, has to make this the best song by them.

9 Sunday Morning

This song has such great vocals, beat, and lyrics. Sunday Morning just has a vibe that makes me happy. It shows what love can do and how people are longing for great times with lovers. Adam also hits great notes that are perfect with the beat.

P.S. to all the people saying that they miss the old Maroon 5, this song, along with Moves Like Jagger (with Christina Aguilera) and Payphone (with Wiz Khalifa), are boss songs. They both showcase the talent of Maroon 5.

This song is amazing. It helped me through a relationship. It showed me that times get tough, but I need to remember the good in the relationship and not the bad.

The song focuses on the little things in the relationship: fighting over covers, waking up next to the one you love. It's their best song.

10 Maps

This song should be number one, or at least in the top five. I've heard this song over a thousand times, more than any song I've ever heard, and I'm still not tired of it. It's just so enticing and touching. It has great lyrics and an amazing tune.

It's a great song for whatever mood you're in. I really hope this song moves way up the chart.

I know this one is kind of predictable in some ways, but I do not care. The way the song flows and transitions into the chorus is brilliant and awesome.

I love this song a lot because it's fun to listen to and jam to, whether walking or in a vehicle. It's just a likable song.

The Contenders
11 Animals

This is a new song. Just watch it creep up this list. It would be a massive shame if it doesn't. This is the best Maroon 5 song I have ever heard. INCREDIBLE. Even from the start, the lyrics kick in.

Incredible song, works VERY well with the lyrics. It just KILLS. 34th is too low, WAY too low. I hope when people are reading this, it is higher.

When I came to the list, I was hoping to see it at the top. But it's this low. It's a shame! This is a new song. He might sound like a stalker, but the lyrics are beautiful in their own way.

As for the music and tuning, well, it's THE Maroon 5. Of course, it's awesome and kickass. Maroon 5 all the way!

12 Makes Me Wonder

This is the first song by Maroon 5 (now my favorite band) that I've listened to! This song turned me into a Marooner! Just listen to this song. You can't resist tapping your feet on the ground, I'm that sure! I still love this song so much!

This song deserves to be in the top 5 as it is listed so low! Everything in the song is perfect - drums, percussions, lead, rhythm, bass guitars, keyboards, arrangements are all at their best! My other picks are "Nothing Lasts Forever," "Shiver," "Give A Little More," "Wake Up Call," "It Was Always You," "Sunday Morning," "Just A Feeling," "Tangled," "She Will Be Loved," "Maps," "Animals," "One More Night," "Daylight," "Lucky Strike," "Wipe Your Eyes," "Wasted Years," "I Won't Go Home Without You," "The Sun," "Through With You," and "Payphone." But I chose this masterpiece! This song always "MAKES ME WONDER"

13 Wake Up Call

I think this song should be in the top 5. The music is very entertaining and full of emotions. Who agrees with me? Hands up!

What the hell! This song should trade rankings with Misery! In this song, Adam kills the cheater who cheated with his girlfriend.

I think people should get the lyrics of this song. Otherwise, it would not be at number 10.

14 Love Somebody

Payphone, One More Night, Maps, Animals, In Your Pocket, Feelings, Moves Like Jagger, Daylight, Shoot Love, and Love Somebody should all be in the Top 10. But people just don't know how to vote seriously.

Very emotional, very relatable. I feel like it should be in the top ten for sure. Also, it's certainly one of the best from Overexposed. Oh well.

I really want this song to be higher. I listen to it every single day. Number 1? It's close to there, but we can make it all the way, make it all the way!

15 Daylight

Every Maroon 5 album has that one song that attempts to be the peaceful, slower, down-to-earth song that intends to speak to you. Songs About Jane has She Will Be Loved. It Won't Be Soon Before Long has Won't Go Home Without You. Hands All Over has Out of Goodbyes. This album has Daylight, which I think actually breaks the mold.

I think it has a lot of heart and depth put into it, unlike something like My Heart Is Open.

This is an awesome song and deserves to be in the top ten. This song is very important to me and reminds me of the best night of my life. I love this song and feel strongly about it. Maroon 5, awesome job with Daylight!

16 Never Gonna Leave This Bed

This is such an amazing song! Not only are the vocals and lyrics incredible, but it also has an amazing bass pattern. It's been my favorite song of all time for the past year. I can't think of a better artist than Adam Levine to pull off the high notes.

Mickey was awesome with the bass, Jesse has an amazing keyboard as always, and Matt and James were on point, like always too. This song is one of the many reasons M5 is so amazing.

Top five? You're crazy. It should be in the top three! This song is amazing! This is the song that made me love Maroon 5. Vote for this song, people!

And how can Harder to Breathe be better than this song? Or even Makes Me Wonder? You'll make me wonder by voting for that song, so people, vote for this song!

17 Must Get Out

The awesome one! Best Maroon 5 slow song ever. It kills me when he sings, "This is not goodbye, she said, it's just time for me to rest my head." It's just so attached to my love.

The girl who ditched me is always the same. Maroon defines it in their songs. Way to go, Maroons, and thanks to you, Adam, for your such god-gifted, heart-drilling voice.

Words cannot express how much I adore this song! Goodness. The chorus just killed it. My iTunes count says that I've played this 46 times, haha.

This city's made us crazy, and we must get out. I love their slow songs, but this one's the best.

18 Shiver

Possibly the best Maroon 5 solo ever. Better than anything else in their discography.

Great song! It's understandable why it's in 41st place, though.

19 Give a Little More

This music is amazing. Maybe one of their best pieces. But their best music video is She Will Be Loved, of course. Moves Like Jagger is good too.

I saw their performance at Rock in Rio Lisboa yesterday. It was their first time in Portugal, and the concert was amazing.

This song is a total eargasm! It's the first song in forever that really makes me want to dance. Misery is a close second. Most of the better ones are ranked near the bottom.

I like the vibe of this song. It really gets you up and moving. Adam Levine's voice is superb on this vocal.

20 Sugar

It may not be their best (my favorite is Payphone), but it's the one that most deserves to be ranked higher. I mean, it made it into the 1 billion+ club on YouTube, come on!

People have a need to vote for whatever's oldest because sentimentally they like it the most. Don't get me wrong. Their old songs are so good. But, best-song-wise, Sugar hands down tops them all.

This song is great! I believe more votes can upgrade the rank because I think most people love this song!

21 Through with You

This song is so real to me. It makes me think a lot about myself in relationships and how hard it must be sometimes to be with me.

So deep and dark. This is how all Maroon 5 songs should look.

22 Stutter

My God, this song is incredible. It's underrated but so damn beautiful, so catchy, so sincere. It has that rare quality of being something you can feel deeply while also being something you can hear casually.

Jeez, this should 100% be in the top ten - no, scratch that, top five! It's a 10/10 for Maroon 5!

This song should be at number 5 instead of 15. Everyone needs to vote this song up to the Top 10! I mean, seriously, this song is awesome. Just by listening to it one time, you'll fall in love with it.

For all of you who have only heard the mainstream Maroon 5, you have to listen to this song! It's super underrated! Absolutely an AMAZING SONG!

23 If I Never See Your Face Again

Rihanna and Maroon 5 melded very well on this song. The chorus is great, and the bass makes me dance.

This song has catchy lyrics and amazing music. It should be in the top 5.

An awesome combination you could think of! Rihanna and Adam...

24 Back at Your Door

I've listened to Maroon 5 for roughly a year before discovering this song. I had a hard time fully grasping how they were able to write this distinct and "vintage-sounding" masterpiece. From the noticeably moving melody and vocals to the more subtle sounds of the band and orchestra, this takes you to the core of a desperate and broken man's atmosphere.

As for why it hasn't been recognized as much as shallow, catchy tunes like "Love Somebody"? I will never know.

The melody of this song is amazing. It's an absolutely beautiful Maroon 5 song. Super underrated - try listening to it!

25 Lucky Strike

Come on, people! The music in this song is so great. You need to listen to it and then vote this song as the best. How can you not? Let's take this song to the top!

Best song ever! It rocks. Ah, can't get it out of my head. It's so good!

You got me so high and then you dropped me! Love that song. It's not that popular, but we could make it so. It has such a cool, upbeat sound and it's rare to find on the radio. Really awesome!

Guys, this song should be in the top 10, without a doubt. Have you heard it? That bass, those drums, and those incredible vocals. This song was my jam for so long.
