  1. Hi dear MJD !!!!

    Congratulations again for your wonderful site, also analysis of Maroon 5 is very detailed, you are really a great expert, after the Maroon 5 I hope you will analyze the famous old groups that I have mentioned in previous posts,maybe in the next week.
    I believe that when you will analyze the Fab Four (The Beatles) I believe that there will be many detailed pages as Bob Dylan !!!

  2. Holy Moly, those numbers for Moves Like Jagger are massive.

    Overall, you can say what you want to say about the quality of their music nowadays, but can’t deny Maroon 5’s chart success.

  3. Makes Me Wonder – 5,300,000
    Wake Up Call – 3,100,000
    Won’t Go Home Without You – 3,100,000
    If I Never See Your Face Again – 1,800,000
    Nothing Lasts Forever – 1,100,000

    How do you know you sold all this?

      1. Oh sorry. I do not speak English and I had to use the translator. I wanted to know, how you know that “Makes Me Wonder” sold 5,300,000?

        1. No problem Dan – myself I’m French / Portuguese and do a lot of English lanaguage mistakes 🙂

          Download figures are estimates based on last known sales in each country, updated with linearity formulas and extrapolated WW as per market sizes.

          Makes Me Wonder for example included for large countries 3,15m from the US, 540k from Mexico, 400k from South Korea, 150k from the UK, 120k from Australia and 75k from Germany.

          1. Ah, so adding the sales of the countries you mentioned, gives 4,315,000, right? So it reaches 5.3 million with sales from other countries?

    1. They are estimations rather than official figures (which aren’t available) but they are by far the most reliable you can get online 😉
