This week’s number ten song on the iTunes top ten is “Just the Way You Are” by Bruno Mars. Once again, another Bruno Mars song. By no means am I shocked at this because like I stated earlier, when I blogged about his other hit “Grenade”, it is about time that he is getting recognition for the music that he makes. In this song he talks about a girl that he loves and how he would not change anything about her.
“When I see your face
There’s not a thing that I would change
Cause you’re amazing
Just the way you are
And when you smile,
The whole world stops and stares for awhile
Cause girl you’re amazing
Just the way you are”
This is a very heart-warming song that anyone can strike a liking to because when listening to this song I bet just about everyone out there has one person in their mind that they would not change simply because they are perfect just the way they are. When Bruno Mars sings this song you can hear the passion in his voice and the love that he has for this girl that he is singing about. It is quite evident that he is in love and this girl truly means the world to him. When I first heard this song, I instantly thought it was just another sappy love song that people will get sick over after a month or so, but really this one is sticking. I believe the main reason for this is because he is not consistently saying, “I love you, I love you, I love you” but he is saying those three oh so special words without actually saying those words at all. By simply commenting on her smile, or the way he feels when he just sees her face clearly implies love. Being in love is truly like a drug, because as we all know so very well, no one is perfect. However, when you are in love, that person is perfect, and believe it or not you truly convince yourself that he or she is perfect in every single way. It is hard to imagine someone being completely “perfect” but you got to remember, perfect is what the lover sees, and not what the person, on the outside looking in sees. It goes back to the age-old quote, “Love is in the eye of the beholder” and in a way you can almost say that, “Perfection is in the eye of the beholder.” But this is why I love this song. When you listen to it you instantly think of the person you love and to have the person on your mind, there really is no better feeling.
