A Belated Review of Maroon 5’s “Moves Like Jagger” Video

Most of the time you hear the word “belated” when you are referring to giving your friend/family member a late card because you forgot their birthday. However, in this case, the word belated is being used not so much to imply forgetfulness, but laziness. Don’t ever tell one of your friends that!

Maroon 5’s latest video, “Moves Like Jagger”, has a couple nice features despite its simplicity.

1. It clears up what the heck a “Jagger” is for anyone that didn’t know in the first place (Mick Jagger of course!)

2. It features Maroon 5’s lead singer Adam Levine shirtless (and may I say tattoos never looked so good!). ‘Nuff said!

3. It showcases not only footage of Mick Jagger performing, but also interview clips. I don’t think anything’s quite as priceless as hearing a young Mick Jagger (the Mick Jagger) say “I never thought we’d be doing it (performing) for two years” and “I think we’re pretty much set up for another year.”  A year? How about a couple decades?!

Other than that, the video is just a lot of people dancing – including Adam Levine, Christina Aguilera and some other girls wearing retro-rock outfits. Normally, that sounds like a pretty boring video, but the upbeat tune of the song makes it work. In fact, the song is so catchy that it seems like it would be a crime to do anything but make a video of people dancing. I may be a stickler for deep, symbolic, music videos (think “Bad Romance”), but for once, I’m just fine with watching random dancing.

But now for more important matters – who told Adam Levine to put his shirt on at the end of the video?!?!
