Actually longer than that.

I am old enough to remember when the copyright holder for the Chiffons "He's So Fine" sued George Harrison over "My Sweet Lord" and prevailed in court.

Then again the 80's band Men at Work lost a lawsuit about their song "Down Under" over a song written and published in the 1930's.

Wow I never put the 2 songs together before but now that you mention it they definitely sound similar.

I love Bruno Mars, but that "Locked Out of Heaven" is definitely my least favorite of his songs that I've heard. I hear a note or two in common here and there, but not anything more than that.

It did surprise me that the same artist that gave us Just the Way You Are came up with lines such as "Your sex takes me to paradise."
Did you miss The Lazy Song?

I like his music, but being blunt with lyrics is not uncommon for him

Check out Bruno Mars little mermaid on YouTube. I love it! He is incredible. Loved him on SNL!

I love "Locked out of Heaven" but the lyrics are uh, not ok to sing in the car! My teenage daughter likes him too, but we both agree that's a song we will just bop our heads to.

Even the classical composers borrowed themes and melodies from each other. It's been done for centuries. Find a good melody, why not use it again in another setting.

Watched Bruno on Jimmy Kimmel last night. He did Locked out of Heaven with a more reggae tone last night and I have to admit, it did sound like The Police.

Listen for yourself

Sorry to drudge up this dead thread, but just wanted to say that Bruno Mars and Sting just sang Locked Out of Heaven on the Grammys and it was AH-MA-ZING!

Bruno Mars is awesome.

Well, according to Bruno none of it would be possible if it weren't for Bob Marley, so Sting stole from Bob Marley and then Bruno stole from Sting.

That was a great performance (as was much of last night's show). Bruno Mars is a talented guy. I think we'll see some surprising material come from his eclecticism.

That explains why I like that song since I'm not really a Mars fan.
