'Liquor Store Blues' hitmaker Bruno Mars doesn't care if you think his new single 'Locked Out Of Heaven' sounds like the Police.
"Hell yeah! You try to write a Police song!" he told MTV. "I grew up listening to the Police, I grew up performing in bars, singing Police songs."
He continued: "I remember performing a song like 'Roxanne,' and you play those first couple of chords, and you hit that first note, and you watch the whole bar ignite. And as an artist, as a songwriter, it's like, 'Man, I want to write a song that makes people's eyes explode the first chord!'"
'Makes people's eyes explode'.
