** "Uptown Funk"'s refrain of "Uptown Funk you up" is a reference to "Funk You Right On Up" by The Sequence, one of the first commercial rap songs (it was even the b-side to [[Music/SugarhillGang "Rapper's Delight"]]).

* ShoutOut: The numerous {{Retraux}} effects in the "Treasure" music video show very obvious nods to the music video for "Let's Groove" by Music/EarthWindAndFire.

** "Uptown Funk" is not "Don't Believe Me Just Watch". Although the latter phrase is not said more (in the radio edit they are both said 18 times, in the album/single version the former is said 30), it is probably the phrase you will remember more in the long run.

* RefrainFromAssuming: "When I Was Your Man" has a handful of phrases in the chorus that one could see it as, but the title is not said until the very end of the song.
