Bruno Mars – Grenade

Posted on March 13, 2011

Bruno Mars - Courtesy of FlickrI first saw this performed on the Graham Norton show on UK TV and I have no idea why, but it really appealed. I guess it could be the casual jamming type of approach to the performance. Plus I also thought it was high time we had a recent release added to the portfolio and this fitted that bill rather nicely.

Turns out that Bruno Mars is a pretty talented individual who not only writes for his own purposes, hence the ‘Grenade’ rendition, but has produced some pretty tasty tunes for 3rd parties. One of the most famous being ‘Fuck You’ (excuse the language) by Cee Lo Green. Back to his personal campaign though, his debut album was released last year in 2010 which was called Doo-Wops & Hooligans and includes the featured single ‘Grenade’.
