Hot Song

Liquor Store Blues by Bruno Mars, from Doo-Wops & Hooligans (Elektra), in stores Oct. 5; brunomars.com

Making like Michael Jackson-meets-Bedouin Soundclash, the Hawaiian-born Bruno Mars emotes down-and-out lyrics: "I'll take one shot for my pain/ One drag for my sorrow." Given that the just-released reggae number, with island verses from Damian Marley, comes days after the whiz kid's arrest for cocaine possession, a new line like "one snort for tomorrow" will kill at the karaoke houses.
