Just the way you are

Singer Bruno Mars poses in the press roo

On my way into work this morning, the radio djs were talking about an announcement that Bruno Mars was set to perform the Halftime Show at the 2014 Super Bowl. I am not a football fan however I do like Bruno Mars. And so it got me thinking about his music.

There are many artists and many songs, but there’s something about Mr. Mars and his music. He has got this positive, Motown-nostalgic vibe that reminds me of the music I grew up with. When I hear one of his songs, I usually end up humming it for the rest of the day. His latest, Treasure, even has me reminiscing of family functions where we would bust a move on the dance floor to the Jackson 5 and other disco beats.

While the djs were not happy with the choice of entertainment for the Half Time show, hoping the Super Bowl would score New Jersey home favourites’ such as Bon Jovi and Bruce Springsteen. And please, let the record show that I would love to see those two greats team up on stage, even if it is just for 30 minutes! However, so far, they only have confirmed the youngest performer to date. At the ripe old age of 27 (he’ll be 28 by February), I have no doubt that Mars will bring it.

And the millions of people who tune in will be dancing!

Happy Music Monday!

Just the way you are

By: Bruno Mars

Ohhhhh ohhhhhh ohhhhhh ohhhhhhh

[Verse 1:]
Oh, her eyes, her eyes
Make the stars look like they’re not shinin’
Her hair, her hair
Falls perfectly without her trying
She’s so beautiful
And I tell her everyday
Yeahh

I know, I know
When I compliment her she won’t believe me
And it’s so, it’s so
Sad to think that she don’t see what I see
But every time she asks me “Do I look okay? ”
I say

[Chorus:]
When I see your face (face face…)
There’s not a thing that I would change
‘Cause you’re amazing (amazing)
Just the way you are (are)
And when you smile (smile smile…)
The whole world stops and stares for a while
‘Cause girl you’re amazing (amazing)
Just the way you are (are)
Yeah

[Verse 2:]
Her lips, her lips
I could kiss them all day if she’d let me
Her laugh, her laugh
She hates but I think it’s so sexy
She’s so beautiful
And I tell her everyday

Oh you know, you know, you know
I’d never ask you to change
If perfect’s what you’re searching for
Then just stay the same
So don’t even bother asking if you look okay
You know I’ll say

[Chorus:]
When I see your face (face face…)
There’s not a thing that I would change
‘Cause you’re amazing (amazing)
Just the way you are (are)
And when you smile (smile smile…)
The whole world stops and stares for a while
‘Cause girl you’re amazing (amazing)
Just the way you are (are)

The way you are
The way you are
Girl you’re amazing (amazing)
Just the way you are (are)

[Chorus:]
When I see your face
There’s not a thing that I would change
Cause you’re amazing (amazing)
Just the way you are (are)
And when you smile
The whole world stops and stares for awhile
Cause girl you’re amazing
Just the way you are

Yeah
