No one forces you to visit his threads if you hate him that much. :roll:
Apparently, you have too much time on your hands.
You really need to get a hobby.
Opinions are opinions. I don't hate Bruno. He is one of the greatest entertainers out there but if you say so. :lol:

This still sounds awful. One of the biggest disappointments of the year.

I won't ever change the station if this was playing. It's a hot track. I'm so disapointed by the lyrics though. It's trying real hard to be meme worthy. They're obnoxious and tacky.

Bruno always makes the most of every song though. Guy can perform the phone book

It's very underwhelming! It's not even close to "Uptown Funk" epicness. :-? :-? Not to mention, the video is so awful.

Same, it only took 6-7 years but I finally liked a Bruno Mars single. This is brilliant.

UF! took some time to grow on me. This was 100% instant. It's way more relaxed and the production is fire.

I have such love/hate towards this!
The song and the video is heavily inspired by UF and the song itself is hugely dire as it can be lol at the same there's a tiny bit of unknown feeling that makes me love it in between all these sh*tty elements lol
I'm completely bipolar on this.
Been reading UkMix everyday for well more than a decade now, and Here I am posting :)

On first listen, this was meh, but maybe it's a grower.

It's on YouTube, not bad but something was not right on his voice :-?

So many people on the stage, no need for all these girls just jumping around without serving any choreography, Bruno and the hooligans are good enough. And SNL's stage is too small so it looked crowded plus SNL has the worst sound system when it comes to live performances.
Seven number ones on Billboard Hot 100 and fourteen top ten hits since 2010/ Bruno Mars.

It was a nice performance, but hearing this song live I could really notice how bad the lyrics are :-? :lol:

Thanks! I was about to play this, but if it's anything like UF, I'd rather not.
