Congrats are in order for pompadoured crooner Bruno Mars. He picked up the award for song of the year for his hit ‘Just the Way You Are’ at the 2012 ASCAP Pop Music Awards.

These honors are handed out by the songwriting society comprised of authors and composers. Mars and his songwriting team were recognized for their efforts. Unlike many pop stars, Mars is actually credited as one of the writers on this song, so he’s not just getting up there and doing his neo doo wop thing, singing other people’s melodies and lyrics. He is a part of the songwriting process.

Congrats to everyone involved in the conception and completion of ‘Just the Way You Are.’

The song was Mars’ debut single from ‘Doo Wops & Hooligans,’ dropping back in 2010.The song was also honored with a 2011 Grammy for Best Male Pop Vocal Performance. It also peaked on the radio charts, too.

You can’t argue with a quality, solid song. It just hits in all the right places and ‘Just the Way You Are’ is unquestionably one of those tunes.

We’re looking forward to Mars next batch of songs!
