Yes! For once I'm actually dedicating a post to a MUSICIAN.
I usually dedicate posts to female celebrities who tend to inspire me. But, I was just sitting in my room listening to "It Will Rain" and I thought about this year.. 2011 has been fuelled by music from, the amazing BRUNO MARS.
I've put lots of links to my absolute favourite Bruno Mars tracks. It was so hard trying to pick a few.
Around January time, I purchased Bruno's album "Doo Wops & Hooligans," I've said this before & I'll say it again.. It's easily the BEST album i've ever bought! I got it when I was 21 so I absolutely LOVED the song Somewhere in Brooklyn. Had a bit of a personal feel to it.

I was also going through a bit of a break up at that time too *boo hoo* it was the worst part of this year. So glad I got over it, The song "Talking to The Moon" was my "Feeling sorry for myself" track. It's beautiful.
It still leaves a lump in my throat when I listen to it now, it's crazy how music can take you back to certain times & places and still bring all those feelings back again. Have a listen if you haven't heard it, I'm sure most of you have but if you haven't, I so recommend it!

March time, I went to an intimate gig in Birmingham to see him with a friend. Can't believe I got tickets, they'd Sold out within FIVE minutes. I felt on top of the world when they came through the post =)
We were so close. Ah! Take me back to that night anytime, I was so happy to be there. He honestly is a great, GREAT Talent.
Just the Way You Are.
