Uptown Funk — The next “Happy”?

First it was “Blurred Lines” and then “Happy”.  It looks like the next “gonna-hear-it-at-every-wedding song” will be Bruno Mars’ “Uptown Funk”.

Except … it’s not a Bruno Mars tune.  Officially, it’s a Mark Ronson song that features Bruno Mars.

And just who is Mark Ronson?  He’s a household name in the UK but is not well known in the US despite producing Amy Winehouse’s mega hit album Back to Black and its Grammy winning single “Rehab”.

No matter whether it’s by Bruno Mars or Mark Ronson, it’s a really fun tune, with a great performance from Mars and an excellent arrangement and production from Ronson.

And I’ll be okay hearing it and playing it.  Probably a lot.
