    Anyone else think the new Bruno Mars song Locked out of Heaven sounds like The Police

    you decide

    The Police Message in a Bottle
    The Police - Message In A Bottle - YouTube


    Bruno Mars Locked out of Heaven
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3V0tqSnAGbE


    If it isn't a direct rip off it has a distinct Police sound.

    I know somebody just saw this song performed on the Victoria Secret Fashion Show and thought that sounds like a Police song...

    Anybody?

    Wow. What a blatant ripoff (except for the absolutely ******, awful chorus). It sounds more like "Can't Stand Losing You" than "Message In a Bottle" to me, but either way, this is ridiculous.

    Sounds just like The Police.

    On a similar note, listen to Some Nights by Fun FUN Some Nights Lyrics - YouTube beginning about 45 seconds in. Tell me that doesn't sound like Simon and Garfunkle's Cecilia Simon & Garfunkel - Cecilia - YouTube.

    that song does have a Cecilia beat. But every time I hear that song I think that Some Nights by Fun is the long lost track from the "Coming To America" soundtrack Where Freddie Mercury teamed up and fronted for Men at Work and they came up with this song :)

    the first time it came on the radio i had that same thought: this sounds like a police ripoff

    if sting sounded and acted like a total ****** bag, the song would have been identical

    I've been thinking that Bruno Mars song definitely sounds like a Police ripoff. I was tempted to get on the twitter machine and ask him how much one of their (The Police) B-sides cost, but it was not worth the potential teeny-bopper outrage.

    Have you seen or heard Sting these days? He does sound and act like a total ****** bag.

    Re: Anyone else think the new Bruno Mars song Locked out of Heaven sounds like The Po

    The two songs definitely have some similarities, but in no way is Bruno ripping off The Police. Not even close. Both songs just have a similar style...

    And I'm not a huge fan of Bruno just cause it isn't my style, but that guy probably has the best voice in music today. His talent is ridiculous.
