Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that "One More Night" is a mature song in that it describes a guy who can't break free from a physically abusive relationship. It also includes some pretty sultry lyrics about spending the night together. Although the song doesn't have any profanity or explicit sex, the talk about returning to an unhealthy relationship doesn't send the best message to younger kids who are still figuring out what it means to date someone.
What's the story?
"ONE MORE NIGHT" is the second track from the fourth full-length album by powerhouse pop act Maroon 5. Known for lyrics about relationships and love gone bad, the band follows their pattern with this tune about being addicted to intimacy with a girl who's physically abusive.
Is it any good?
In a word-association game, the phrase "killer hooks" would bring Maroon 5 to the minds of many. The guys do it yet again with the simple yet addictive hook that backs this track, infusing it with a just a hint of reggae that makes it all the more appealing.
