|Maroon 5 singles chronology|
"Goodnight Goodnight" is a ballad by Maroon 5 from their second studio album, It Won't Be Soon Before Long. It is the fifth single from the album and it received some airplay in Brazil and reached the top spot on the Hong Kong singles chart before its official release.
It has been released as a promo CD single and as a digital download in the United Kingdom. The intro guitar for the song bears a resemblance to intro for 3 Doors Down's "Kryptonite." A remix version of this song is also found on Call and Response: The Remix Album.
The song was scheduled to be the fourth single from the album, as the video had already been shot. The label however, decided to re-record the song "If I Never See Your Face Again" with additional vocals by Rihanna.
The song was released in Brazil on November 2008 and in the United Kingdom as a digital download, with a specially designed Maroon 5 wall clock with every pre-order.
The music video is directed by Marc Webb, and premiered on Yahoo! Music on August 21, 2008. Candace Bailey stars in the video along with Adam Levine. In Brazil, the video premiered on October 18 on Top TVZ as the Bonus Track and received regular play.
The storyline is based on a "before and after" story which leads Levine and Bailey to a beautiful love story.
Former band member Ryan Dusick also makes a cameo in the video.
The love story begins where Levine walks into a store and sees Bailey at work. The pair meet for the first time, taking an interest in each other, Levine and Bailey then leave the shop together. The next scene shows Levine and Bailey beginning to date as they talk in his car one night. After which, the pair are shown lying in bed, sharing an intimate moment. Intercut with the scenes are Levine and the Maroon 5 band mates performing the song in various locations, as well as romantic moments between Levine and Bailey. The next morning, Bailey awakens to apply makeup and a Geisha-esque wig before greeting Levine with a kiss. However, Bailey receives an unexpected phone call from the workplace, telling her she has to leave immediately. Bailey tells Levine the news and he is in disbelief. As Bailey tries to explain the reason for her sudden departure, Levine rebuffs the matter. After the argument, Levine walks outside and sees Bailey - armed with her belongings and tears in her eyes - standing at the end of the pier. Levine goes to talk to her but with Bailey leaving so soon, there is no time to patch things up.
A remorseful Levine is shown reminiscing over the moments that happened when he and Bailey were together. The next scenes show Levine running around the beach with his pet dog and thinking things over as his band mates surf along the waves. The last scenes show Bailey in the workplace when she sees Levine standing outside and she smiles. Levine then goes into the store to talk to her and the pair reconcile as the song fades out.
