The other day I was driving around with my mom and listening to AMP Radio (naturally).

My mom tries to stay hip with all the latest music, but when “Rocketeer” came on the airwaves, she exclaimed, “Oh isn’t this that boy with the sweet voice…[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Bruno Mars[/lastfm]?”

I laughed a little at how excited she was and said, “I hate to break it to you, but this is [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Far East Movement[/lastfm] featuring [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Ryan Tedder[/lastfm] from [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]One Republic[/lastfm].

But it turns out my mom was sort of right!

While we aren’t playing this version on air, Bruno Mars recorded a demo of the track and it finally leaked onto the internet!

Bruno Mars actually co-wrote “Rocketeer” and sang the hook on this alternate version.

No word yet on why [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Far East Movement[/lastfm] ended up choosing [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Ryan Tedder[/lastfm] for the radio cut, but it’s fun to hear a different take on the song!

Vodpod videos no longer available.

To give you some perspective, here’s the “Rocketeer” that AMP Radio rocks on air.
