Awesome Dance Track, If You'll Excuse the Lyrics
on 1 August 2014
As we all know by know, this was one of the biggest hits of the Summer of 2014. The chorus has an infectious hook and Pharrell Williams's usual creamy smooth vocals blend well with Robin Thicke's deeper tones. A great dance track, perfect to liven up any house party and to get your guests shaking their hips. The video is great too, particularly the "uncut" version which you can still view on YouTube, featuring the delectable Emily Ratajkowski. If you haven't seen her yet, the R rated version of the video would probably be of considerable interest to most men. Robin Thicke has tried to argue, lamentably, that the video is not sexist or misogynisitc, and that it is meant to be ironic. Yeah, right. If that were really the case, why did he have a 10 out of 10 model like Emily dancing topless, rather than a woman who looks like a female Russian shot-putter whose overdone the steroids and male hormones? That said, this review is about the song, the only weakness really is the silliness of the lyrics, but it is still the sort of great tune to get the toes tapping.
