"The Lazy Song" is a song recorded by American singer-songwriter Bruno Mars for his debut studio album Doo-Wops & Hooligans (2010). It was serviced to contemporary hit radios in the United States on February 15, 2011 as the album's third single by Atlantic and Elektra. Development of "The Lazy Song" began while Bruno Mars, Philip Lawrence and Ari Levine were hanging around the studio and didn’t feel like working. Mars wrote the song in collaboration with singer-songwriter, K'naan and his production team The Smeezingtons, who also produced the track. Musically, "The Lazy Song" has been described as borrowing "heavily from roots reggae", while lyrically it is an anthem to laziness.

"The Lazy Song" reached number four on the US Billboard Hot 100, while it topped the charts in Denmark and charted on most international markets within the top five. It reached number 1 on the UK Singles Chart. Cameron Duddy and Mars directed the accompanying music video, in which Mars hangs out with five dancers with monkee masks while jest around in his underwear. Worldwide, it was one of the best selling digital singles of 2011 with sales of 6.5 million copies. Mars performed "The Lazy Song" on The Doo-Wops & Hooligans Tour (2010–12), and occasionally on The Moonshine Jungle Tour (2013–14).

Development and production[edit]

"The Lazy Song" is one of the eleven songs composed and produced by The Smeezingtons for Mars' debut studio album Doo-Wops & Hooligans.[1] In an interview with Sound on Sound, fellow Smeezington Ari Levine explained how they came up with the song "[It] was a very tough song to write, even though it is so simple. That song began one day when we were hanging around the studio and hadn’t written a song for a few days and we were kind of burnt out and didn’t feel like working. We felt lazy. 'K’naan' was in the studio with us, and the four of us suddenly came up with this idea." He added, "After that we had a really hard time getting the groove and the drums to sit right. Once you have one piece of the puzzle, like when you realise that a drum track is good, you can add other things in after that."[2]

"The Lazy Song" was mixed at Larrabee Sound Studios in Hollywood by Manny Marroquin, while Christian Plata and Erik Madrid served as the assistant for mix.[1] Ari Levine and Bruno Mars played all the instruments on the track and recorded them. Ari was also responsible for engineering the song at Levcon Studios in California.[1] Stephen Marcussen mastered the song at Marcussen Mastering in California, while DJ Dizzy was responsible for the scratching on the track.[1]

Composition[edit]

A sample of the song features Mars singing over a moderate reggae beat.

"The Lazy Song" was described as borrowing "heavily from roots reggae" and having a moderate reggae groove.[3][4] According to the digital sheet music published by Sony/ATV Music Publishing, the song was written in the key of B major and is set in time signature of common time with a tempo of 88 beats per minute.[4] The vocal range spans from F4 to B5.[4] "The Lazy Song" features an acoustic guitar,[4] scratching,[1] and a drum track[2] on the instrumentation, being three minutes and fifteen seconds long.[5] Lewis Corner, reviewer of Digital Spy noticed the "reggae-pop production" while describing Mars as a "couch potato of the daytime TV variety" due to the lyrics of the song "I'm gonna kick my feet up then stare at the fan/ Turn the TV on, throw my hand in my pants".[6] Jim Farber of Daily News considered the song a "hymn to sloth".[7] The single version of the song features whistling, which is not present on the album version.[8] Lyrically, the song makes reference to MTV, the P90X home fitness DVDs, and the Cali Swag District song "Teach Me How to Dougie".[9][10][11]

Release[edit]

"The Lazy Song" was the third single to be released from Mars' debut studio album Doo-Wops & Hooligans (2010).

Critical reception[edit]

"The Lazy Song" has received generally favourable reviews from contemporary music critics. Eric Henderson of Slant Magazine noted that in song Mars "paints a portrait of Al Bundy as a young man"[16] and Andy Gill of The Independent classified the song as a "laidback acoustic groove".[17] Tim Sendra of AllMusic said it was one of the tracks from Doo-Wops & Hooligans that captured the laid-back groove.[18] Scott Mervis of Pittsburgh Post-Gazette described the song as a "Jason Mraz/Sugar Ray-style reggae."[19] Sean Fennessey, reviewer of The Washington Post felt the song was written in a "quality that is both endearing and damning".[10] A mixed review came from Digital Spy reviewer, Lewis Corner, commented on the song being a "summery ditty more head-boppable than a Churchill nodding dog, which, given his current state of mind, is probably about all he could muster", giving it three starts out of five.[6] From Entertainment Weekly, Leah Greenblatt considered that "other modes suit him less well; The Lazy Song is perhaps better left to Jason Mraz".[20] Alexis Petridis of The Guardian, gave the song a negative review, writing that The Lazy Song "gets no further than the second verse before Mars – nothing if not keen to keep his fans abreast of his every activity in a world of 360-degree connectivity – announces that he's planning on having a wank".[21]

Development and synopsis[edit]

Mars and the Poreotics in a shot from the official music video.

The official video was directed by Mars and Cameron Duddy, produced by Nick Tabri and Dara Siegel, and features Poreotics wearing chimpanzee masks; it was released on April 15, 2011. The whole video is one continuous and uninterrupted shot, it begins with Mars singing and hanging out in a bedroom with five dancers, they all wear monkey masks and Mars dresses a black shades and flannel shirt. While Mars sings what he feels to do on a day off, him and the monkeys perform dance moves typical of a boy-band, fool around and and mimicking the song's lyrics. Philip Lawrence, a member of the Smeezingtons, makes an appearance, lip syncing the line, "Oh my God, this is great!" before being driven off by the chimps; the monkeys drop their pants when Mars sings, "I'll just strut in my birthday suit/and let everything hang loose!" The music video ends with Mars pouring yellow confetti all over his boxer-clad pals, right before him, Poreotics and Philip Lawrence, who meanwhile reappeared, striking a pose for the camera.[48]

An alternate video was directed by Nez, produced by Anne Johnson, and was released on May 27, 2011.[49] The video features Leonard Nimoy, who "enjoys the lazy life". During the music video Nimoy, who wears a robe and slippers all day, is seen "wandering around the neighborhood and scaring the local Ginger kids, he's at home smoking weed and chilling out". Besides this, one or two other famous Trek stars make a brief appearance, like William Shatner.[50][51] Mars and Lawrence make a cameo in the video, walking into the grocery store as Nimoy walks out.[49]
