I can't help but prefer a little bit of sappy with my music lately. Extreme-More Than Words- kind-of-sappy.
Ok. So typically, sappy-ness annoys me. I think I'm less romantical than your average woman. I don't get woo'd by the standard stuff. I like real-ness. I like open-ness. I can usually see straight through CRAP, and most of the time- sappy-ness is crap. Most of the time. Not all the time. Sometimes it's sweet.
That band, Maroon 5.
Great artists'. But.... good golly, oh-so-sappy. I gotta admit- I wouldn't know who this band was if a friend hadn't said something about them being "awesome". I Youtube'd like I always do when I don't know who somebody is.
Not a Maroon 5 fan.... just putting it out there. Can't get past the lyrics.
I think it might also be cause the lead singer looks like wife-beater or something?
IT's mainly 'cause the lyrics are TORTUROUS, though. I'm wondering if dude may only be able to sing about his tormented heart. If I could- I would like to say to the guy "GET OVER IT MAROON 5. Put your heart back together and sing about 'not-sad-stuff'.
Same Maroon 5 *fan* friend did a Facebook post about Bruno Mars. I Youtube'd him, too- cause I HAD NO CLUE who this dude was.
And I can't decide if I totally like him because I'm into Sappy-ness lately- or if it's cause I like him.
I don't know what popular song he does "now" - but the one I found that made me listen TWICE was this one:
Oh sooooo SAPPY!!!!!
But I like it. A LOT. It's a serious chick song.
