    I don't really listen to pop but heard this song on the radio and thought it was some police song I never heard at first or something. Y'all have to check it out, really sweet sound.

    Bruno Mars and his band are top notch and can perform live very well.

    Good songwriter, performer and vocalist. He started off with immature kiddie pop.. I'm interested to see where his career goes..

    Dude is not an overnight sensation or a pre-fabbed pop star. Kind of has a tough backstory, so, I wish him the best future.

    This guy is heavily influenced by good old fashioned hard working entertainers, and it shows. Notice how his band handles the music and the choreography? When was the last time you saw that? Earth Wind and Fire? Prince maybe? It's been decades since this was in vogue.

    Thank god someone is bringing it back.

    I hope he stays true to himself and keeps getting better and better. A little more James Brown, a little less Michael Jackson.
