Maroon 5 - Won't Go Home Without You

Best new artist Maroon 5 and a Grammy Award winner sure is breaking the curse that so often follows the accolade. Following runaway hits "Makes Me Wonder" and "Wake Up Call," the quintet maintains strapping momentum of No. 1 platinum second album "It Won't Be Soon Before Long" with third single "Won't Go Home Without You," another track so organically hitworthy that one almost pities whomever had to decide the order of radio releases.

The tempo slows a bit this time, as singer/ songwriter Adam Levine laments letting go of a lady, though the chorus kicks in nicely with plugged guitars and spin-wheel percussion. Man, this guy can write hooks. Maroon 5 serves up songs that never seem to burn and will sound as relevant in years as they do now, while scaling the charts. The act is about two hits from becoming the premier pop band of the millennium.
