Babbling about : New Music and Doo Wops & Hooligans

The first thing I'm going to talk about is Bruno Mars's album Doo-Wops and Hooligans. I would definitely give this album at least an 8/10. You can see within the album that he's thrown in some influences from Hawaii, which is where he grew up; a song which you can really notice this on Count On Me, which actually sounds a lot like Jason Mraz.Well anyways, it ticks all my music boxes: 
Funky R&B - Check 
Guitar Island music - Check
Feel-good Pop songs - Check
Romantic songs which make you go awww - Check!
Here's the the track listing:
1. Grenade *Top Song* - sounds like a Michael Jackson song
2. Just the Way You Are *Top Song* - sounds a bit like U2
3. Our First Time - sounds a lot like a 90's love song.
4. Runaway Baby*Top Song*-sounds a lot like it's from Hairspray/ Bang Bang by Knaan ( the link is two people lip syncing the song - but they're great :) .)
5. The Lazy Song *Top Song*-sounds like Please Don't Let Me Go by Olly Murs
6. Marry You *Top Song* - sounds a bit like Coldplay - Viva La Vida
7. Talking to the Moon - sounds like Halo by Beyonce / Happy by Leona Lewis
8. Liqour Store Blues feat. Damian Marley - sounds like The Fugees
9. Count On Me *Top Song* - sounds a lot like Jason Mraz/ Jack Johnson
10. The Other Side feat. Cee Lo & B.o.B *Top Song* - sounds like it should be in an action movie
11. Just the Way You Are feat. Lupe Fiasco
12. Somewhere in Brooklyn - sounds like a cutesy cartoon song with a synth 80's twist.

Another new song which I'm liking is Nelly's new one which is called Just A Dream. I reckon Nelly's made a great comeback with this one. Who would have thought that McFly and Taio Cruz would come together to make a song? Well they have, and they've created  Shine A Light, which to be honest is quite refreshing :). Broken Arrow   is another song which is refreshing, and perfect for winding down.
