Riff: Bruno Mars – “Treasure”

Dec 10, 2012

You’re wonderful, flawless, ooh you’re a sexy lady/But you walk around here like you wanna be something else

from Treasure lyrics by Bruno Mars

Perhaps throwing a nod to his recent Jacko impersonation on SNL, “Treasure” tries to break the world record for the most slap bass in one song on a funky homage to the disco-pop of Off The Wall. However, its ‘you don’t realise how beautiful you are’ sentiment also has a vague whiff of One Direction.
