Trembol | To whom or what is Moonshine dedicated?

Moonshine is a mesmerizing song that emerged from one (or several) party nights that Bruno Mars enjoyed with a couple of great friends of his, both producers, Jeff Bhasker and Mark Ronson (with the latter he sings the famous “Uptown Funk”).

Although it may seem that the lyrics are very romantic and talk about a girl, the truth is that he is talking about a liquor 🥃

Moonshine was originally a slang term for high-proof liquor that was and continues to be produced illicitly, without government authorization. The name was derived from a tradition of creating the alcohol during the nighttime, as to avoid detection.

It seems that the one that Bruno drank is this (you can find it here)

The song establishes a metaphor between the liquor and the longing for an unattainable relationship, that will give him the high he is looking for.

When you go through Moonshine lyrics you will realize that the whole song is about the liquor. Just a teaser:

It’s something incredible
There’s sex in your chemicals

By the way, when they stopped drinking it, their inspiration evaporated, and it took them more than 3 months to compose the second verse of the song 😂

Bruno Mars explained the meaning of ‘Moonshine’ to Rolling Stone:

We all [Bruno Mars, Mark Ronson and Jeff Bhasker] went out one night, and they had actual Moonshine on the menu. We drank it all night, then headed to the studio – Jeff got on keyboards, Mark starts playing electronic drums that sound like Eighties Prince and I started screaming, ‘Moonshine, take us to the stars!’

There were a lot of nights like that.

Todos [Bruno Mars, Mark Ronson y Jeff Bhasker] salimos una noche, y en la carta tenían auténtico licor Moonshine. Lo bebimos toda la noche y luego nos dirigimos al estudio: Jeff se puso a tocar los teclados, Mark empezó a tocar una batería electrónica que sonaba como el Prince de los ochenta y yo empecé a gritar: ¡Moonshine, llévanos a las estrellas!.

Hubo muchas noches así.

1. The first chords are great, and the opening greeting (Hello) has a clear hint of Michael Jackson.

2. The song begins raising when Bruno sings “On Top of the World 🌏”. What a voice!

3. It is difficult but try to listen to the synthesizer in this last chorus. It powers up the end of the song.

LYRICS BRUNO MARS | MOONSHINE | ENGLISH

Hello,
you know you look even better than the way you did the night before
And the moment that you kissed my lips you know
I started to feel wonderful
It’s something incredible
There’s sex in your chemicals

Oh, let’s go
You’re the best way I know
To escape the extraordinary
This world ain’t for you
And I know for damn sure this world ain’t for me
Lift off and say goodbye
Just let your fire set me free

Moonshine, take us to the stars tonight
Take us to that special place
That place we went the last time, the last time

I know
I was with you last night but it feels like it’s been so long
And everybody that’s around they know
That I’m not myself when you gone
It’s good to see you again
Good to see you again

On top of the world
Is where I stand when you’re back in my life
Life’s not so bad when you’re way up this high
Everything is alright, everything is alright

Moonshine, take us to the stars tonight
Take us to that special place
That place we went the last time, the last time

Moonshine, your love it makes me come alive
Take us to that special place
That place we went the last time, the last time

Don’t look down, don’t you never look back
We are not afraid to die young and live fast
Give me good times, give me love, give me laughs
Let’s take a ride to the sky
Before the night is gone

Moonshine, take us to the stars tonight
Take us to that special place
That place we went the last time, the last time

Moonshine, your love it makes me come alive
Take us to that special place
That place we went the last time, the last time

LYRICS IN SPANISH

LYRICS BRUNO MARS | MOONSHINE | SPANISH

Hola,
sabes que te ves incluso mejor de cómo te veías la noche anterior,
y en el momento en el que besaste mis labios, sabes,
comencé a sentirme de maravilla,
es algo increíble,
hay sexo en tus sustancias químicas.

¡Oh, vamos!
Eres la mejor manera que conozco
para escapar, eres extraordinaria,
este mundo no es para ti,
y de seguro sé que este mundo no es para mí,
despega y di adiós,
simplemente deja que tu fuego me libere.

Moonshine (Luz de la luna), llévanos a las estrellas esta noche,
llévanos a ese lugar especial,
a ese lugar al que fuimos la última vez, la última vez.

Sé,
que estuve contigo ayer por la noche, pero parece que haya pasado tanto tiempo,
y todo el mundo que está alrededor sabe
que no soy yo mismo cuando te marchas,
es bueno verte de nuevo,
bueno verte de nuevo.

En la cima del mundo,
es donde yo estoy cuando vuelves a mi vida,
la vida no es tan mala cuando subes así de alto,
todo está bien, todo está bien.

Moonshine (Luz de la luna), llévanos a las estrellas esta noche,
llévanos a ese lugar especial,
a ese lugar al que fuimos la última vez, la última vez.

Moonshine (Luz de la luna), tu amor me hace revivir,
llévanos a ese lugar especial,
a ese lugar al que fuimos la última vez, la última vez.

No mires abajo, nunca mires atrás,
no tenemos miedo de vivir rápido y morir jóvenes,
dame buenos ratos, dame amor, dame risas,
vamos a dar una vuelta hasta el cielo
antes de que la noche se haya ido.

Moonshine (Luz de la luna), llévanos a las estrellas esta noche,
llévanos a ese lugar especial,
a ese lugar al que fuimos la última vez, la última vez.

Moonshine (Luz de la luna), tu amor me hace revivir,
llévanos a ese lugar especial,
a ese lugar al que fuimos la última vez, la última vez.
