Animals by Maroon 5

Animals by Maroon 5


I found this song interesting because of the prey/predator idea behind it. It kind of answered Shakira’s She Wolf song where she, the woman, is the animal and has needs that need to be fulfilled. Meanwhile in Animals by Maroon 5, the man is the predator on the hunt for “prey” so he can fulfill his needs as well. I thought it was interesting how although Animals is kind of demeaning towards woman with the blood all over the girl in the video and Adam Levine kind of watching her and stalking her, it’s still a very popular song just because it’s catchy. I know I never actually paid attention to the lyrics of this song until I really listened to it and read the lyrics.

  1. I remember the first time I saw the music video of this song and I then thought that it was so creepy. It enforces the ideas of men being dominant and women being submissive.
