Bruno Mars:

Obvious resemblance to 'the police'...
BUT
The part he sings starting from 0:19 sounds like a blatant rip off from some 80ies (new-wave?) song, but i just can't point my finger on it.

Anyone else recognizes it?

Thanks,
Bram

Yeah that's what the whole song sounds like, but I think also roxanne and can't stand losing you.
But I'm looking for just that little part starting at 0:19... :)

The guy is pretty amazing.

I caught him when I was actually in the Philippines.

Quite rightly a hero there.

Did a great job on Saturday Night Live a while ago.

Great talent.

In these days of sampling, etc. we don't really call it plagiarism.

Music has always been derivative.

Even the three blonde boys.
