It’s a big deal when Adam Levine, Maroon 5’s lead singer and all around talent, says that “Lost,” the bands latest release, is one of his all-time Maroon 5 favorites.

There’s joy in the lyrics, and the music is infused with an 80s vibe akin to songs like “Things Can Only Get Better,” by Howard Jones (1985).

The emotional abyss of being lost, followed by the redemption of love, has been a recurring theme for Maroon 5 over the years.

Life was a joke ’til the moment I saw your face 

Got no connection, no faith or direction, no
Searching and searching for someone to save my soul (Ooh)

Lost” is getting airplay across multiple formats:   #17 on Adult Top 40,  #27 on Top 40 and  #32 on Adult Contemporary.
