After being barraged by ballads care of my beloved DBSK, I'm now leaning towards more upbeat American/Western pop - I like my pop nice and lively nowadays. Misery is just that - isn't it ironic? I love it for that.
The song's got very strong production, and every little detail has been put together, taken apart and then put back together at least a few times. Everything has a purpose and everything's done so simply, but when you throw it all together you get brilliance. It sounds very American pop, but it sounds so Maroon 5 at the same time. The arrangement's like that too - everything's so manic but when it's time to lay low they really lay low - perfection. I love the middle 8, not for the melody, but for the instrumental and the arrangement and how it transitions to and from.
Melody-wise the song's effortlessly catchy - it doesn't hit you over the head with the hook and sometimes you don't even notice it, but it's there and it will forever will be. That and I find myself humming the chorus after I listen to the song.
