MARVIN GAYE

got to give it up – 1977

Robin Thicke “Blurred Lines” VS Marvin Gaye “Got to Give It Up”

“You have to be an idiot to think that “Blurred Lines” doesn’t sound like this song. The rhythm is the same.There’s nothing wrong with being inspired to make a song that sounds similar to another,or sampling the song,but pay the original composer,it’s only right;if you can’t do that then you need to be more “Original” with your music. I’m pretty sure if someone made a song that sounded similar to “Happy” by Pharrell,Pharrell would take that artist to court.” slick1hit

“Got To Give It Up”

I used to go out to parties
And stand around
‘Cause I was too nervous
To really get down
And my body yearned to be free
So I got up on the floor and found
Someone to choose me
No more standin’ along the side walls
Now I’ve got myself together, baby
And I’m havin’ a ball
Long as you prove it
There’s always a chance
Somebody watches
I’m gonna make romance
With your body, ooo baby, you dance all night
Get down and prove it, feel all right
Keep on dancin’
Got to give it up

quotes:

War is not the answer, because only love can conquer hate.

I hope to refine music, study it, try to find some area that I can unlock. I don’t quite know how to explain it but it’s there. These can’t be the only notes in the world, there’s got to be other notes some place, in some dimension, between the cracks on the piano keys.

If you cannot find peace within yourself, you will never find it anywhere else.
