Song Stuck In My Head: The Sweetness Factor Of Bruno Mars' Debut Single

 "Just The Way You Are" - Bruno Mars (2010)

Tardy to the party (are we still saying that?) on Bruno Mars' official debut single, "Just The Way You Are", but I had to devote a post to it because well, it's good. Real good. And it's sticking with me at the moment. While it's tricky to release a mid-tempo as a lead-off single, Mars must be confident with his recent chart topping hits collaborations with B.o.B, Cee-Lo, and Travie McCoy, that he can get by with a cool down as his first release. I ain't mad. And oh, is this song so so so sweet. It's sort of warming my little pessimistic heart at the moment with Mars' gliding through vocal duties and how the track reaches back to a time where guys in shiny pants professed their love to a girl, not caring who she was, or what she did, as long as you loved them...well, that was back in the 90's and early 2000's with boy bands galore, but you catch my drift. A great little piano pop number from a cat who's gearing up for some big things later on.

  1. It's really great list. i love this song very much. Also - nice variety of styles. Add some hiphop and you've got it covered.
