Music Review: Grenade - Bruno Mars



Speed: 110 bpm

Recommended bpm range: 110 to 115 bpm

The DJ’s Take: You know, I was listening to the line, "Catch a grenade for ya," and it made me think of a scenario from college. You ask a hot chick out on a date, and she says yes. Problem is, she got a friend who's ugly (but maybe has inner-beauty), and she wants you to find a date for her too. You tell your good guy friend what time it is, he says cool, and you go out on the mandatory double date. Eventually, your friend does his job, but suffers through and ends up going home by himself. In the meantime, you do your job, and you get lucky (with the hot chick, not the ugly one).

So what's the moral of the story? A good guy friend is one who's willing to catch a grenade for ya. And you are willing to do the same.

As for the song, it's got hints of Broadway in it, which makes me think it's definitely showing up on Glee at some point (if it hasn't already). Mix it with Bruno Mars' other current hit, and you will soon understand his plan for world domination.
