Listen to Bruno Mars’ Locked Out of Heaven’ from A Million Little Things, Season 4, Ep. 10

I have been a fan of Bruno Mars since a Thai friend who was working on promotion for his Bangkok concerts gave me one of his promo CDs.

At that point, I didn’t know much about him, but listened to the album and fell in love.



So, when Bruno Mars’ Locked Out of Heaven‘ showed up on A Million Little Things last night, you can guarantee I was thrilled — A Million Little Things, Season 4, Episode 10, “Surprise” — as that has always been one of my favorite Mars’ tracks.

The Grammy-nominated reggae-influenced song, by the way, was the one Regina starts everyone singing to in the sing-a-long.

And, just in case you didn’t know, Bruno Mars’ ‘Locked Out of Heaven‘ is the lead single from his sophomore studio album Unorthodox Jukebox.

It is also a song Mars himself has said he wrote after being influenced by the music of the British group The Police.

Something you can tell the minute you first hear the song, as Mars’ vocals on it sound like a lighter version of The Police’s then-lead singer Sting, and the song itself has such an updated ‘Police feel’ to it.

Listen to Bruno Mars’ ‘Locked Out of Heaven‘ as heard on A Million Last Things in the official music video for the song — a video that has more than 837 million plays on YouTube — and on the singer’s Unorthodox Jukebox album.

Season 4 of A Million Little Things is now airing on ABC and via Hulu.
