The Sad Inspiration Behind Maroon 5's New Song


The tone of the new Maroon 5 song "Memories" is bittersweet. I didn't realize how SAD the song truly is until I heard about the inspiration. In 2017, the band's longtime manager, and Jonah Hill's older brother, Jordan Felstein, died of a brain aneurysm. The band paid tribute to Jordan with this new song and simple video. Jordan Felstein was 40 when he died. Adam Levine said the emotions are still raw. "Here's to the one we've got. Cheers to the wish you were here but you're not. Drinks bring back all the memories. . ."
