Bruno Mars is finally back for his third concert in Manila. From “That’s What I Like” to “Versace On The Floor,” we’re pretty sure that you’re all excited to sing-along with the Fil-Am superstar’s hit songs. Aside from these tracks from the award-winning album 24K Magic, here are more songs we hope to hear at Bruno Mars’ concert tonight:
1. Just The Way You Are
Released in 2010, this is the song that got singer-songwriter on everyone’s radar. It won Mars his first Grammy award in the Best Male Pop Vocal Performance category.
Favorite line: “When I see your face / There’s not a thing that I would change/’Cause you’re amazing just the way you are”
2. Marry You
“Marry You” is the song we all want to listen whenever you feel gloomy. It became an instant hit because of its tune and lyrics. It might be the right time to propose to your special someone when Bruno performs this song. *wink*
Favorite line: “‘Cause it’s a beautiful night / We’re looking for something dumb to do / Hey baby, I think I want to marry you”
“Grenade” is one of Bruno’s most iconic songs because of its heartbreaking lyrics. According to the singer, the song is about “loving someone so deeply, and the pain of knowing that the person you love does not feel the same.” Aww.
Favorite line: “Gave you all I had and you tossed it in the trash / You tossed it in the trash, you did / To give me all your love is all I ever ask”
4. It Will Rain
This pop-soul ballad is part of the official soundtrack of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn. Mars captures the emotion of the film with his vocal power and the song’s lyrics. Who wouldn’t want to hear this song live?
Favorite line: “Just like the clouds / My eyes will do the same if you walk away / Everyday, it will rain / Rain, rain”
5. The Lazy Song
All of us undeniably loves this fun and quirky track especially its music video. With its danceable tune and catchy lyrics, we’re pretty sure that everyone’s excited to party with this song tonight.
Favorite line: “Don’t feel like picking up my phone / So leave a message at the tone / Cause today, I swear, I’m not doing anything”
This is the third single from his 2012 album Unorthodox Jukebox. The music video of the song features Mars and his crew wearing shiny, red outfits dancing to a funk beat. It’s reminiscent of 80s Michael Jackson.
Favorite line: “Treasure, that is what you are / Honey you’re my golden star / You know you can make my wish come true / If you let me treasure you”
7. When I Was Your Man
Seeing Mars playing his piano is one of our favorite things ever. And with the piano ballad “When I Was Your Man,” it shows the singer’s romantic side. You will hear the pain through his voice.
Favorite line: “Same bed but it feels just a little bit bigger now / Our song on the radio but it don’t sound the same”
Bruno Mars 24K Magic Tour Manila is on May 3 and 4, 8pm at the SM Mall of Asia Arena, Pasay. He will also host an after-party on Thursday, May 3 at Chaos Manila in City of Dreams.
