Many of today’s hit songs are, uh, borrowed from old hit songs. Today: Robin Thicke and Marvin Gaye


One of the hottest songs on today’s pop charts is called Blurred Lines by Robin Thicke. Sound familiar? It should…assuming you’ve heard the song Got To Give It Up by the late Marvin Gaye. Press the play buttons of these two videos at the same time and layer them over each other if you don’t believe me. What do you think?

    It’s a borrowed sound, and I wish they’d be original but I like the song nonetheless especially when you put it side by side with the rest of the garbage in circulation right now.
