First – HAPPY HOLIDAYS!!! 2019 is almost here, and I hope it brings you all peace, joy and wonderful opportunities.
Second – If you don’t know anything about Kara’s Flowers, you really need to.
What is a Kara’s Flower? You may be shocked to find out that Kara’s Flowers is a mostly failed band of high schoolers that eventually became a little pop group called Maroon 5.
Yep, you heard that right. I was shocked when I found out, too. And I was also surprised to find that many of their songs were awesome, deep and could have even become classics in the right situation. Their sound is very 90’s grunge-inspired to me, but you can hear some Songs About Jane vibes in their songs.
I love to listen to a good KF song every so often – and I want to share the inspiration that their songs offer me. So here are some quick links where you can learn more about the band and their music:

In case anyone was wondering, my favorite Kara’s Flowers songs are:
- My Ocean Blue
- The Fog
- Bonus Song: If You Only Knew (an early, unreleased Maroon 5 tune)
No links here – you can research all these songs at the links I already provided above 😉
