I have been playing this song on repeat for the last couple of weeks – besides the fact it’s on the Twilight Soundtrack (barf) I just love it.
I love it because it is one of those songs you can just sing like you’re about to cry. I’d recommend this song for a long drive by the countryside alone so noone can see your facials when you sing it out loud when you’re driving. (Not that I actually do that *shifty eyes*).
Anyways I purchased the song on ITunes a few weeks back and I was anticipating what the music video would be like. Since it dropped today I wanted to share it on my blog as it is hot and fresh out the kitchen!
So here’s my video of the week by Hawaiian born Filipino singer, song writer and record producer Bruno Mars.
Enjoy and have a great weekend – perhaps a drive by the countryside isn’t too bad a suggestion after all.

I’m writing this now on a musical high, well lets call it a music hangover as I got to see Brian McKnight, one of the most talented musicans of all time perform tonight at the Civic in Auckland. I was moved beyond words and overcome by emotion hearing him live. Straight up, I’ve never heard anyone sing live like him with such diverse singing and musical range! If you missed his concert I feel for you, well actually I don’t because you are dumb to have missed the opportunity to see this man! Read more »
