3. Just the way you are
This song was Bruno Mars’ debut solo single and the lead from his album “Doo-wops & hooligans” in 2010. It is a sweet song of romantic devotion. About it, American singer-songwriter said: “I’m a big fan of songs like Joe Cocker’s ‘You Are So Beautiful’ and Eric Clapton’s ‘Wonderful Tonight’. Songs that go straight to the point. You know, there’s no mind-boggling lyrics or twists in the story – they just come directly from the heart. And to me ‘Just The Way You Are’ is one of those songs. There’s nothing mind-blowing about it. I’m just telling a woman she looks beautiful the way she is – and, let’s be honest, what woman doesn’t wanna hear those lyrics?!”.
