Covers: Maroon 5 does Oasis (surprisingly well)

I'm not really Maroon 5's biggest fan. Actually, I thought that their last album was soulless crap compared to what they proved to be capable of on "Songs About Jane". I just have a problem with bands settling for much less than what they're able to do. But sometimes I get reminded that they actually are a good band who's just been a little lazy the last year or two. They covered Oasis's "Don't Look Back in Anger", and did a surprisingly good job. It's acoustic and doesn't have the "big sound" of the original, but Adam Levine performs it well. Hopefully they can get some of this skill together for a better third album.
