Bruno Mars- as Funky as can be

What better way  to ignite my productivity and inspire a post (since last year!!) than listening to Bruno Mars' highly contagious and soul reviving  song, "Uptown Funk." The Intro simply does it for me...and then it just builds up to sheer perfection with the guitar, the percussion, and his voice! (OH MY GOSH his voice!!!) Okay...get a handle of yourself Roxy!!!!* quickly fanning self and adjusting ones attire*
In any case  as an 80's baby I'm sure you will agree. We all grew up impersonating and listening to megastar legends like Michael Jackson, Rick James, James Brown, The Commodores, Ray Parker, Zapp and Roger, and Prince! If you ask me that's a super talented and funky bunch of people, and Im gonna go ahead and say it... but Bruno Mars might have just added himself to that list. Its only a select few that give me this feeling of euphoria (Michael Jackson, James Brown being at the  top of my list) and up until recently Janelle Monae and Bruno Mars. Don't get me wrong, I've always appreciated Bruno's music and his obvious talent, but this...THIS just did it for me. There's no return for me now, I FEEL SO ALIVE! I'm dancing around like that kid  in the garage all over again. And if this song wasn't enough, Bruno Mars and the Hooligans outdid themselves with an equally  funky  video that takes us waaaaaay back!  In my opinion no young artist (current time) can manage to pull this song off better than Bruno Mars himself....Nuff said *DROPS MIC**
