Locked Out of Heaven - Single
Open iTunes to preview, buy and download music.
The first single from Bruno Mars' second album, Unorthodox Jukebox, "Locked Out of Heaven" features Mars' typically charming croon pleading for love over musical backing that sounds like a breezy mashup of the tightly danceable beat of Michael Jackson's "Beat It," the reggae-lite basslines of Sting while in the Police, and the processed guitar tone of '80s-era Dire Straits. The song was the product of a songwriting collaboration between Mars, Philip Lawrence, and Ari Levine, and was produced by Mark Ronson, Jeff Bhasker, Emile Haynie, and the Smeezingtons (Mars' own production team).
Could be better
I love the song but just think it is missing something and it seems similar to runaway baby very upbeat. He had to be listening to the police when he wrote this.
Sounds like The Police to me too. Just a less original and "safer" version of The Police.
No wonder the industrys not doing so great. There is a lack of innovation.
Yh this is an ok song but it sounds like so much of his older music. I will still be getting his album and stuff but I cannot give this great reviews as I have heard the sound before from Bruno.
Artist are playing it safe and the consumers can tell. The music industry is treating us as dumb moorons to just milk money outta us and this is the outcome of just that.
