I always laugh whenever I listen to the opening line of Maroon 5’s Payphone because, well, come on. I see maybe one or two payphones these days in the city; the song would have fit better maybe ten or more years ago when cell phones weren’t as widespread.
I still remember back in high school when they made us use the payphones outside the cafeteria because the school office phone was only for “emergencies” and cell phones weren’t allowed on during school hours. Good times.
But I will admit, I like both the cover and the video done by Dave Days and Megan Nicole. Trust me, if you’ve watched the original music video by Maroon 5, you’ll understand why I like this video better.
