You are known by you could make my wish be realized
Pass those words to anybody on a utilized napkin at an eighth-grade make-out party and you will likely get an immediate cost pass on the highway to tongue-town (ew).
Pass them to your better half and, odds are, night out goes to culminate in 47 moments of chaste-yet-passionate frenching.
Pass them to a cop who pulls you over for running an end indication, and they’re going to think you’re strange вЂ” but most likely ake out with still you.
In reality, Bruno Mars fundamentally has a very long time pass which will make down with America due to this track.
This is exactly what takes place whenever you compose “Treasure” and also you’re on phase with Michelle Obama. Picture by Mandel Ngan/Getty Graphics.
And I also’m okay with this.
But, here is why “Treasure” isn’t since intimate since it appears:
Every thing about “Treasure” is retro. Every Thing.
Including its attitudes about sex.

Things begin to get south from the comfort of the beginning:
Give me your, provide me your, offer me personally your attention, child
I gotta let you know a something that is little your self
Ah yes. Absolutely absolutely Nothing screams “respect” that can match a man lecturing a strange girl on the road about one thing she “doesn’t find out about by herself.”
Just What would it be? Would it be that her jokes are funny? Can it be that she’s got something inside her teeth? Would it be that her nonfiction book about very very early modern German history is acutely step-by-step and informative?

Spoiler Alert: It is none of these.
You are wonderful, flawless, ooh, you are a sexy woman
you circumambulate right right here as you wanna be another person
Oh. It is that she actually is sexy. Cool, bro. Extremely initial.
Term of advice? Regardless how she actually is walking, the girl understands she actually is sexy. Even at her (even over a funky disco snare) if she doesn’t, it really doesn’t affect her day-to-day so much that you, a complete stranger, need to shout it.
What exactly if she does desire to be another person? We’d want to be another person! I do believe being Ryan Gosling could be quite nice. A great way to spend a weekend that is three-day.
Certain, there’d be an modification duration. Picture by Eamonn M. McCormack/Getty Graphics.
Then later on, needless to say, the narrator can not assist himself:
Pretty woman, pretty woman, pretty woman, you should be smiling
a woman as you must not look therefore blue.
He respects her a great deal, he is really straight-up telling her to smile! Just like Mars’ character “Uptown Funk,” whom generally seems to log off on angrily exhorting girls to “hit [their] hallelujah.” Which, you realize, we guess everybody’s got a thing.
Yes, in the wide world of “Treasure,” a healthy and balanced relationship is an unending blast of a person complimenting a strange girl and stated girl being therefore totally flattered that she instantly dispenses “the intercourse.”
Then proceeds to keep in touch with his possible enthusiast such as the earth’s pirate that is creepiest:
You’re my treasure, you might be my treasure
you might be my treasure, yeah, you, you, you, you may be
you might be my treasure, you will be my treasure
you’re my treasure, yeah, you, you, you, you may be
By this aspect, in his mind’s eye, she is a literal thing. an item. Which is suitable.
I guess it might be even worse, though. At the least she actually is not only any thing.
