The Capital Late Show With Marvin Humes 10pm - 1am
With Bruno's Super Bowl halftime show performance just around the corner, Capital asked fans on Twitter and Facebook to vote for their favourite all-time track from the singer. It could be one of his smash singles or even a high-profile feature. Check out the results.
Kicking things off is the 2010 single from Travie McCoy. For many, it was their first taster of Bruno and started a long love affair with the Hawaiian star.
The song was taken from his debut album 'Doo Wops & Hooligans and was even involved in a memorable viral flash-mob proposal. The feel-good vibes and catchy hook are a perfect weapon during his set.
The song was recorded as a soundtrack for the movie The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1 and unveiled back in September 2011. Bruno shows off his talents for writing a heart-wrenching ballad and we challenge you to not shed a small tear when he belts out the lyrics of torment and depression,
The second official single from 'Unothodox Jukebox' brought with it an exposed vulnerable side to the singer. Ahead of its release, he tweeted how nervous he was with unveiling the song to his fans but he needn't have worried. The reflective nature of the lyrics, the tender delivery all make for one of his best selling tracks yet.
It scored nominations for Record and Song Of The Year at the Grammy Awards 2014 and brought Bruno back with a bang towards the end of 2012. It is the lead single from his second album 'Unorthodox Jukebox' and showcases some of his influences such as The Police.
"Today I don't feel like doing anything!" We've all been there right? With a hilarious video (full of pant-pulling down dancing) how can there be a top ten Bruno song chart without this one?
Sexually charged lyrics and an equally promiscuous promo to boot. It's Bruno at his most playful and teasing and creates one of the coolest tracks of the past twelve months.
It was the lead single from his debut album and immediately certified his place as a future superstar. The track resonated with all the romantics out there as Bruno pays tribute to the girl of his dreams. It's about making the protagonist feel perfect in their own skin and was a refreshing change from more of the hip-hop heavy clichés in the charts. Bravo Mr. Mars. (Oh yeh, it also got him the Grammy for Best Male Pop Vocal Performance in 2011)
In at number two is the 2010 single which saw Bruno hauling a piano around Los Angeles (surely he could have got a removal man to help him no). Anyway, it takes a further dark twist when he catches the woman he loves with another man and then takes his piano onto the train tracks. It's more powerfu stuff from Bruno and a track that scored him another Grammy nomination.
Taking the top spot, and by some way, is the infectious, tow-tapping, hip-grinding, booty-shaking 'Treasure'. As soon as that slap bass kicks in, there is no way it won't put a smile on your face. Dancefloors everywhere get full to the brim when this track is on and trust that the repeat button is gonna take a hammering.
