"Daylight" (CD Single)
What parents need to know
Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that "Daylight" is among Maroon 5's cleaner tracks, with no profanity, violence, or substance use, and only a few very light allusions to intimacy (spending the night together). It's a good pick for tweens who love the band but are too young for some of their sexier, more mature music.
What's the story?
Is it any good?
For lots of their fans, Maroon 5 are at their best in their most danceable tracks, many of which feature killer hooks you just can't shake long after the song's over. "Daylight" is not one of those songs: It's a slower, more sensitive ballad that lacks hook appeal. Levine's vocals are still solid, and the band's overall performance still respectable; fans should just know going in, this is not the group's typical fare.
Families can talk about...
Families can talk about a recurring word -- "perfect" -- in Maroon 5's songs, and the potential pitfalls of putting someone you love up on an unrealistic pedestal. Why is that problematic?
In one line, lead singer Adam Levine sings, "Here I am, staring at your perfection in my arms, so beautiful." Does someone need to be perfect to be beautiful? Why or why not?
Think about people you consider beautiful, and name some of the reasons why.
