"Girls Like You" as written by Jason Evigan and Adam Levine....
Spent twenty-four hours, I need more hours with you
You spent the weekend getting even, ooh
We spent the late nights making things right between us

But now it's all good, babe
Roll that Backwood, babe
And play me close

'Cause girls like you run 'round with guys like me
'Til sun down when I come through
I need a girl like you, yeah yeah
Girls like you love fun, and yeah, me too
What I want when I come through
I need a girl like you, yeah yeah

Yeah yeah yeah, yeah yeah yeah
I need a girl like you, yeah yeah
Yeah yeah yeah, yeah yeah yeah
I need a girl like you

I spent last night on the last flight to you
You took a whole day up tryna get way up, ooh
We spent the daylight tryna make things right between us

But now it's all good, babe
Roll that Backwood, babe
And play me close

'Cause girls like you run 'round with guys like me
'Til sun down when I come through
I need a girl like you, yeah yeah
Girls like you love fun, and yeah, me too
What I want when I come through
I need a girl like you, yeah yeah

Yeah yeah yeah, yeah yeah yeah
I need a girl like you, yeah yeah
Yeah yeah yeah, yeah yeah yeah
I need a girl like you, yeah yeah
I need a girl like you, yeah yeah
I need a girl like you

Maybe it's 6:45
Maybe I'm barely alive
Maybe you've taken my shit for the last time, yeah
Maybe I know that I'm drunk
Maybe I know you're the one
Maybe you're thinking it's better if you drive

Not too long ago, I was dancing for dollars
Know it's really real if I let you meet my mama
You don't want a girl like me I'm too crazy
But every other girl you meet its fugazy
I'm sure them other girls were nice enough
But you need someone to spice it up
So who you gonna call? Cardi, Cardi
Come and rev it up like a Harley, Harley
Why is the best fruit always forbidden?
I'm coming to you now doin' twenty over the limit
The red light, red light stop, stop
I don't play when it comes to my heart (let's get it though)
I don't really want a white horse and a carriage
I'm thinkin' more of white Porsches and karats
I need you right here 'cause every time you call
I play with this kitty like you play with your guitar

'Cause girls like you run 'round with guys like me
'Til sun down when I come through
I need a girl like you, yeah yeah
Girls like you love fun, and yeah, me too
What I want when I come through
I need a girl like you, yeah yeah

Yeah yeah yeah, yeah yeah yeah
I need a girl like you, yeah yeah
Yeah yeah yeah, yeah yeah yeah
I need a girl like you

    My InterpretationGirls Like You is to Maroon 5 like Bonnie and Clyde is to Jay-Z. There’s both looking for the same thing, a ride or die chick. Throughout the track, Adam Levine is crooning at length to a girl that he’s put through a lot. He’s been drunk; they’ve been fighting. But, at the end of the night, their magnetic pull is undeniable.

    General CommentThere are two things (in particular!) about Maroon 5’s “Girls Like You” video that make my heart sing -- as a staunch feminist, I obviously love the fact that this video features so many amazing women; as someone who has always been a fan of variety in my media, I thoroughly enjoyed watching a video with so much of it! The video features Adam Levine standing on a platform alone singing into a microphone. Doesn’t sound very exciting does it? Well, as he dives into the first chorus, as the camera is rotating around him, different women begin appearing behind him at every pass.

    It doesn’t take too much brainpower to recognize that these women are all...well, different. From actresses to models to olympic athletes to comedians, this video features not only women from all different walks of life, but all different ethnicities as well. You won’t see any two women dressed in the same outfit or dancing the same either. Their personalities each shine with incredible individuality.

    What better way to make a mockery of the phrase “girls like you” -- Maroon 5 (along with an army of talented and confident women) is here to tell you that no two women are the same and that trying to separate them down into different groups only to dismiss them is a fallacy. Plus, Ellen Degeneres. I mean, c’mon.

    General CommentGirls Like You is so catchy! I’m going to be humming it for the rest of the day. I just watched the video and that made it even better. Where else can I find a video featuring Eleven, Mary J. Blidge and Cardi B. (And so many other awesome women) ?! I love way the ups and downs of love are all presented in this song and the way that different women are celebrated in the video.
