After reading Tyrell‘s track-by-track review of Maroon 5‘s ‘Overexposed‘ album this morning, I took the time to listen to it myself (he’s away but we share iTunes on one of our computers) and loved it. I was also excited to see that coicidently, Maroon 5 released their video for “One More Night” today and we’ve got your first look at the knockout” video below.
The video, directed by Peter Berg, (Friday Night Lights, Battleship), likens a relationship to a boxing match. “You and I get so damn dysfunctional we start keeping score,” as one of the verses goes. At the beginning of the video, Levine is with his faux wife and daughter at home, but you can tell there’s a lot of “unspoken” issues going on. Shortly after, he heads out the door to go train, and then heads into the ring for his big boxing match.
In the end, Levine may have won the match, but he lost his love because when he returned home, she and the baby were gone. She had packed up all of her stuff, included a fairy tale book, and away she went. Clearly there was no fairy tale happy ending in this relationship. Check it out below!
