This is the edited version!
Maroon 5 is a guilty pleasure of mine, but the video for "Wake Up Call" is simply trying too hard (sorry, but porn stars and explosions won't get men to sit through an M5 video). I'm writing this review, however, to prevent others from making the same mistake I did. I purchased this video off iTunes assuming it was the director's cut; I wanted a higher-quality version than what is available on YouTube. After all, watching Adam Levine get fried in the electric chair makes sitting through this ridiculous video worth it. Alas, I wasted nearly $2 on this edited version, which I can see on TV. I realize this video wasn't marked "explicit"; however, I assumed lack of a label doesn't mean anything since the album managed to dodge the Parental Advisory sticker.
This song rocks! These people complaining about how there is no unedited version...get over it. You shouldn't rate it badly because of that. I LOVE this song and here are the lyrics: I didn't hear what you were saying. I live on raw emotion baby I answer questions never maybe And I'm not kind if you betray me. So who the hell are you to say we Never would have made it babe. [Bridge] If you needed love Well then ask for love Could have given love Now I’m taking love And it’s not my fault Cause you both deserve What is coming now So don’t say a word [Chorus] Wake up call Caught you in the morning with another one in my bed Don't you care about me anymore? Don’t you care about me? I don't think so. Six foot tall Came without a warning so I had to shoot him dead He won't come around here anymore Come around here? I don't think so. [Breakdown] Would have bled to make you happy You didn't need to treat me that way And now you beat me at my own game And now I find you sleeping soundly And your lovers screaming loudly Hear a sound and hit the ground [Bridge] [Chorus]
It hurts me to say this, but this video is TERRIBLE. Don't even watch it. It will ruin all the wonderful memories you probably have of Maroon 5's former videos. Wake Up Call isn't one of my favorite songs by them, but it deserves a better music video that this. I only gave it three stars out of respect for Adam's AMAZING singing ability. The music video gets a zero... Sorry...
