"Moonshine, Take Us to the Stars Tonight"

Leave it to @BrunoMars to create a funky, 1980s sounding ballad in 2012. Moonshine is the third single off Bruno's upcoming album Unorthodox Jukebox, due out on December 11th. On his first album, Bruno did what he could to push the limits of pop music mostly through sing along ballads that incorporated a lot of different styles like doo wop, R&B, and reggae. I think he put it best when he declared that his three man song crew, The Smeezingtons "refuse to pick a lane" when it comes to the sound of his newest album.

I described Moonshine as 1980s sounding because of the throwback disco feel it has beat wise. It's a track you could imagine Micheal Jackson pulling off back in the day. The cool thing is, not many people could pull that off, which is a testament to Bruno's versatility. I'll put it this way, I haven't heard anything ordinary off his new album, which implies a sophomore slump is very unlikely...#UnorthodoxJukebox
