Maroon 5 already scored success over their previous albums “Songs About Jane” and “It Won’t Be Soon Before Long”. They released their third album “Hands All Over”. It sounded like their debut album with rock, pop rock, soul, and funk music. It went to number 2 in US albums chart and gone platinum by RIAA.
“Misery” has been the first single from the album “Hands All Over”. The song sounds pop rock with funk influences. It is a sad story of about living in a miserable relationship. The single was a moderate hit for a carrier single. It reached number 14 on Billboard Hot 100, and just at number 30 in UK.

Give a Little More
“Give a Little More” was the second single for “Hands All Over”. As you listen to the song, it is evidently an upbeat funky song, with such seductive vocals from Adam Levine. I first listened to the song after being performed by Phillip Phillips on one of his performances on American Idol as a contestant, which he sang it in a slower register. The song haven’t got a wide release as it was released in limited territories. It reached number 86 in the US.
