“…We’re looking for something dumb to do. Hey baby, I think I want to marry you.” So begins the refrain of Bruno Mars’ popular single “Marry You”, and it is a fitting refrain considering the rest of the song’s bizarre lyrics, which include: “Who cares if we’re trashed, got a pocket full of cash…” and “If we wake up and we want to break up, that’s cool. No, I won’t blame you.” It would certainly be more normal to say, “We’re looking for something dumb to do. Hey baby, I think I want to hook up with you,” and yet Bruno Mars strangely chose to write in this manner about marriage. At this time, I have no profound interpretation to leave the reader with, but I thought this song would be an interesting (and frightening?) cultural phenomenon to bring to the reader’s attention.
