For some reason the existence of Robin Thicke (American/Canadian R&B Sensation, Mr. Paula Patton and, most importantly, Alan Thicke’s son) has gone unnoticed by me. From where I’m sitting he looks quite a bit like the second coming of Ricky Martin. But the dude is a talented writer of breakaway pop hits and his single, “Blurred Lines,” has been everywhere. It’s a catchy, disco-infused little ear worm that is only improved when reinterpreted by Jimmy Fallon, The Roots and Fisher Price.
This, of course, is not the first time Fallon and his insanely talented house band have improved Top 40. But it might be my favorite. Other efforts include:
“Call Me Maybe”
And, of course, the very best Christmas song of all time.
You’re welcome for the ear worms, poppets. Good night.
