Vintage looks good on Bruno Mars. “When I Was Your Man” is as minimalist as one can get so don’t expect some grand love concept. It’s just Bruno at his piano singing his heart out.
With the simplicity you hone in on the touching lyrics and Bruno’s beautiful vocals. We’d actually prefer this to a overdone video that took away from the song. Bruno has an old soul. Sitting at the piano looking like somebody’s talented uncle. We can dig it.
