Blurred Lines – The Earworm of the Summer – What Song Can’t You Get Out of Your Head? [VIDEO]
Last week one day, my wife and I visited my aunt who’d in a nursing facility in Eatontown.
She tells us that every Tuesday they have a staff that does their nails.
So we enter the cafeteria that they have set up as a nails salon, and one of the aides is playing over and over the new Robin Thicke song “Blurred Lines.”
Fact is, I love the song. It’s got a great sample of “Got to Give it Up” by Marvin Gaye plus the occasional Michael Jackson shout; and a decent vocal.
But, the aide chose to play it over and over.
Sort of like being waterboarded. So much so that I couldn’t get the song out of my head.
So I had to go check out the official video.
Much to my surprise, the version with the naked women is gone from Youtube.
Sultry R&B singer Robin Thicke is known for setting the mood with his songs, but in his new music video for his latest single “Blurred Lines,” Thicke goes a step further with full-body displays. In fact, the video is so hot that Youtube can’t take it.
According to the Associated Press, a rep for Thicke, 36, confirmed that the unrated video has been banned from the popular video-sharing website.
Thicke’s sexy video, featuring female models stripped down to their bare bodies, is ultimately a peep show. It also features hit producer Pharrell and rapper T.I. dressed in suits dancing around the naked women.
The video debuted on VEVO and, in just a few days, has garnered more than 1.3 million views.
The AP reports that Thicke sought the approval of his wife, actress Paula Patton, to shoot with the nude models.
In any event, there are others online that aren’t “offensive!”
Either way, the song gets into your head, and you can’t get it out.
So far, not a bad thing, until I start singing it to myself and drive my wife crazy.
Go ahead, I dare you: Once it envelopes your brain, you’re a goner!
What other songs get in your head that you can’t get rid of?
