Life is so short , isn't it? Sometimes you feel you have hardly time for anything. But if you make time to read, you can learn about the universe and beyond. On that note, I want to share my feelings, views and thoughts to the world, to establish myself a place in this world. I want to inspire, not to be inspired. I don't want to be the next APJ, I don't want to be the next A.R.Rahaman, I don't want to be the next Saina Newhal........ I am going to be the first Janani Ganesh! .......And you , my readers are going to help me acheive that.

Oh, Maroon 5!

The very name in the title would bring everyone to this article. I am not much of a fan of English music, but Maroon 5’s songs make me listen in awe. I know they are a pretty successful band. That’s when I started thinking, it isn’t sufficient that we know how to sing their songs-We need to know a little more about them.

In 2001, the band got a makeover by adding guitarist James Valentine and continuing under the name Maroon 5. At this point, Jesse started playing the keyboard. They released their debut album, “Songs About Jane”, in June 2002. The album’s lead single, “Harder to Breathe”, received an excellent response, which helped the album reach a number six.

In 2004, the album struck platinum and was dubbed “the sleeper hit of the millennium”. The band won the Grammy Award for Best New Artist in 2005. For the next few years, Maroon 5 toured extensively worldwide in support of ‘Songs About Jane’.

The band recorded their second album, “It Won’t Be Soon Before Long” which released in May 2007.  “Makes Me Wonder”, was the band’s first number-one single on the Billboard Hot 100.Tracing the Outline of Maroon 5 3

Maroon 5 has also dedicated a lot of their earnings to charity:

They also support the Bonnie J. Addario Lung Cancer Foundation.
