Bruno Mars - Just The Way You Are video

Bruno MarsI caught Bruno Mars playing a showcase in London last week and was very, very impressed. He has a stunning soul voice, a band that's tighter than lycra, and a collection of songs about things he has seen or experienced.

One of those songs is called Just The Way You Are. It is not a cover of the "don't go changing to try to please me" Billy Joel track, but the sentiment is essentially the same.

Played live, Just The Way You Are is something of an anthem. The Middle 8 has the epic, euphoric air of U2's Pride (In The Name Of Love). On record, it's a bit more subdued - but the animated video is a compact classic.

NB One: Although this video features a man in a hat, it is an Olly Murs free zone.
NB Two: Although Bruno Mars was on Travie McCoy's Billionaire, this song is not bollocks.
NB Three: What I'm trying to say is: 'Do not be afraid'.
