One of my favorite songs is “Maps” by Maroon 5. The story behind this song is a guy is cheated on by his girlfriend, even though he was always loyal to her. He was always there for her, even when she hit rock bottom. He doesn’t understand why she left him; he is hurt that when he needed her help, she wasn’t there for him. Despite having his heart crushed, he still wants to win her love back, and the “map” is a guide/plan that he must follow to bring their relationship back after being derailed.

When I first heard this song, I wasn’t a huge fan, but the tune is so catchy. As it became popular on the radio and I listened more often, I began to pay more attention to the lyrics and the purpose of this song. Soon I realized that the song is quite relatable, thus really capturing my attention.
