Top 20 Maroon 5 songs of all time (Updated)

Maroon 5.
In celebration of #Maroon5Day, here are the top 20 Maroon 5 songs of all time

Note: In celebration of 14 years of Maroon 5's debut Songs About Jane, the band partnered up with UNICEF and UNICEF USA to celebrate ‪#‎Maroon5Day‬ and their ‪#‎ChildrenFirst‬ foundation. To help, they are matching donations on June 25th up to $25,000 to help raise awareness for the cause. Head to http://unicefusa.org/maroon5 to learn more.

If you were asked to describe explain in detail the diversity and uniqueness that is Maroon 5's catalog, it would be quite an exceedingly, distinctful list. Taking in to account all five of the group's commercially success studio efforts, describing each album would be rather tricky: Songs About Jane (2002) being a funky-R&B-inspired pop record, It Won't Be Soon Before Long (2007) being a slick and solid 80's-influenced pop rock effort, Hands All Over (2010) delivering a unique funk-metal-esque sound, and Overexposed (2012) and V (2014) displaying the band's turnover into the straight up synthpop realm. Since their introduction into the mainstream commercial world, they have covered all bases of pop and rock music dabbling a little in funk, dance, electronica, disco, reggae, ska, grunge, metal, and even country across all of their albums. Each record is more diverse than it's predecessor, whether it's carrying on from a funk-a-fied sound to a shimmering pop-glistened vibe or crossing the bridge between Stevie Wonder and Marvin Gaye to Prince, The Police and Sting, the Grammy Award winning L.A. band has proven that they have no boundaries.

With this countdown, I am taking into account other critics' and journalists' top Maroon 5 songs lists, reviewing Rolling Stone reviews of each of the band's albums, hearing out my followers in my interactions on Twitter asking them what song should be number one, and taking into consideration of Maroon 5's most commercially productive hits. No need to worry, this countdown won't be too glazed with "Moves Like Jagger"'s and "Payphone"'s. However, some of the band's biggest and best-selling international hits have been their best taking to account "Daylight" and "She Will Be Loved." This countdown will not feature any material from the band's b-side releases, live albums, EP's, nor will include cover songs, Adam's solo material, or any songs featuring Adam Levine or the members of Maroon 5; only tracks strictly taken from the band's five commercial album releases.

So without further ado, here are the top 20 Maroon 5 songs of all time.
