What Do Marvin Gaye, Madonna & Robin Thicke Have In Common?


Do you like Robin Thicke‘s song, Blurred Lines? Does it remind you of another song? Well the latest unimportant music battle I came across is this one. There are people saying Blurred Lines ripped off Marvin Gaye‘s, Got To Give It Up, and there’s another group of people that think Blurred Lines is a slowed down version of Madonna’s song, Give It 2 Me. I had never heard Madonna’s song, but I do not like it and I don’t think it sounds anything like Blurred Lines. However, Give It 2 Me and Blurred Lines are produced by Pharrell so there may be something to the similarity of the base beat or cowbell that you hear in both songs. I suppose that’s the only common denominator of all three songs; the cowbell.

Tell me what you think…

  1. Both tracks are produced by the same person, so I’m sure there are some similarities.

  2. Listen to the synth at the beginning on Give it 2 Me, it’s the same as the one on Got to Give it Up.

  3. I think the music of Marvin Gaye’s song and Robin Thicke’s songs do sound alike. Also Madonna’s music sounds a little bit like the others but not by much.
