No Fury Like a Man Scorned,
This review is from: Wake Up Call (MP3 Music)
"Wake Up Call" is a catchy song. The melody alone is worth the price of the song. It's got a good beat. Adam Levine sings from the perspective of a man finding his girlfriend in bed with another man ("six foot tall" according to the lyrics-is Levine pint-sized?) It's almost reggae,almost ska... and it works. It's also one of those old-school (VERY old school) "murder ballads." It hits on an ancient theme,like the story of Paolo&Francesca in Dante's "Inferno",in which Francesca's hunchbacked husband slays the adulterous lovers.
"Wake Up Call" isn't the best of Maroon 5's tunes but they've got the beat,beat,beat,they've got the beat.
