Bruno Mars, ‘The Lazy Song’ – Song Spotlight
'The Lazy Song' is the brand new single from Grammy Award winner Bruno Mars and his much-loved 'Doo-Wops and Hooligans' album.
From the sounds of it, Mars has another hit on his hands. A reggae current and a loose groove run through the entirety of this easy, breezy song that arrives as a harbinger of summer. This top-down tune positions itself as a quintessential, warm weather song, especially when Mars sings, "Today I don't feel like doing anything / I just wanna lay in my bed / I don't feel like picking up my phone / So leave a message at the tone / Today I swear I'm not doing anything / Nothing at all."
We all have those days when we want the voicemail to just take over -- to leave the Smart Phone in our pockets -- and this song celebrates those few and far-between moments.
Mars also sings about having sex with a lady and mulls over the possibility of completing his degree and then just throws his hands in the air and says that his dad will have to wait, because he wants to enjoy a lazy day. Can you blame him?
The sleepy, unforgettable song is perfect for workaholics and Type As who need a light, fun fare to soundtrack their day.
