Bruno Mars – When I Was Your Man

Bruno Mars‘ video for the haunting ballad ‘When I Was Your Man’ is a simple, focused clip where the crooner plays the role of piano man, with a drink perched atop his instrument, a suit on his back and shades covering his eyes while he tickles the ivories. The emotion reverberates off the screen.

The clip has a bit of a prismatic tone to it, but the visuals really are secondary to the simplicity of his playing and emoting. Bruno’s heart is broken and he’s using music to heal it. No bells. No whistles. Just a man, his voice and his piano.
