It’s like my prayers have been answered with all these songs featuring [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Adam Levine[/lastfm] out now. Whether it’s “Moves Like Jagger” which is the [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Maroon 5[/lastfm] song you’ve been hearing recently on AMP or “Stereo Hearts” which is my Playlist pick for this week. I’ve been a long time fan of [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Gym Class Heroes[/lastfm] so this was an easy choice.
I actually met [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Travie[/lastfm] (lead singer of GCH) when I saw them play a small club in San Francisco. They’re great live, so check them out if they ever roll through town. The first song I heard from them was “The Queen and I” that has a pretty great video. Never was sure what was going on with that toothbrush, though…check the :50 mark. Weird.

It’s obvious [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Adam Levine[/lastfm] has had a successful career being the frontman (a very sexy frontman) of Maroon 5 in addition to being a judge on Carson Daly’s show “The Voice“. He also hasn’t been a stranger to being featured on songs by other AMP artists. [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Kanye West[/lastfm] collaborated with him on “Heard ‘Em Say” back when Adam had much more hair.
This song has been picking up steam in other parts of the country. Nice to see GCH back again. They weren’t making music for a short time while Travie was out making his solo album. Although I have to admit it took a minute for ‘Stereo Hearts” to grow on me, now I can’t seem to get it out of my head. Funny, the same thing happened with “Moves Like Jagger“.
This week’s pick was actually suggested by a listener! Like I say every time I do this post, please leave comments here on if you agree with my pick, disagree, or if you have a song you’d like to see featured next week.
GCH is working to put out a new CD named The Papercut Chronicles II. Here’s the first single from that album, “Stereo Hearts” featuring Adam Levine.
As a bonus this week, please also enjoy shirtless Adam Levine in the video for “Moves Like Jagger“! ;] xoxo —S
