…..listening to and, against my better judgment sometimes, liking Bruno Mars’ stuff. I mean there are the obvious good songs of his – Just The Way You Are and Marry You, for
one two. But Grenade’s a little crazy. And so is this one.
But dammit if it doesn’t have a good melody.
Tangent: When I used to work as a server, the restaurant I worked for offered a vegetable medley as a side item. However, most people asked for it by calling it a “vegetable melody.” ‘Cause, you know, that’s the same thing, right? So whenever someone at one of his tables said it, my friend Mike would sing the ingredients to them. On account of the melody.
Anyways, another thing this song has against it is that it will be used in the next Twilight movie, which makes me about as excited as I am before I have to go to the dentist.
Can’t argue that the sucker’s catchy though. And totally speaks to the whole demographic of Twilight fans in that if you’re broken up with, life will suck. FOREVER. Quite melodramatic.
Poor Bruno, he can’t seem to catch a break. And apparently, when the dude falls in love, he falls hard. Or drags a piano.
