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.

A great catchy tune, which reminds me of early beat box days! Deserves to be a number one record. Pharrel has always been a class act.

Anyone who identifies as a feminist certainly doesn't seem to like this song, they seem to want to rid the world of this sort of lyrical material about the whole sexual conquest mentality by males but to my mind the sexual politics behind the messages in this song doesn't stop it being an admittedly pretty fun pop song, especially music production wise, it was certainly fun enough to become the number 1 selling single of 2013 in the UK. Anyone who thinks that the song is somehow a rape song does seem to be rather extreme in their analysis of something that just feels as if it's quite a throwaway premise at the end of the day, it amounts to little more than a song constructed around the clubbing culture where young people go to hook up that is starting to feel as old as time itself.
Luckily radio stations in the UK such as BBC Radio 1, Bauer's Key 103 and Heart are not controlled by the political correctness that so called "feminazis" seem to desire, and you can indulge in this by buying this song from Amazon against their wishes on that score too!

Robin Thicke does an homage and - from what I'm told by hipsters - satire. He does a certain George Michael/Justin Timberlake lite combined with Marvin Gaye's "Give It Up" and an objectification of women reminiscent of Robert Palmer videos. I'm pretty apathetic about it but I heard Miley Cyrus (We Can't Stop) likes it, draws power from it, objectified Thicke in a twist of satire, and that's good enough for me. Is it art? I don't know, I'm not an art critic. But as an adherent to democracy I can sure as heck tell you it's popular.

Heard this on the radio and it made me stop what I was doing and I just had to dance around the room. Unfortunately at the end of the track, the dj didn't say what it was called and I thought it was a Prince song so have had to spend time tracking it down. It is one of those songs that just drive you mad because you can't get it out of your head but it is so of the moment and has a real good summer feel to it. Playing it all the time.

I first saw the video for Blurred Lines whilst on holiday in Turkey - it was constantly on a French version of MTV. The video is very unusual with the words Blurred Lines etc appearing at times in bold letters over the singers and models. Robin Thicke is very handsome as well so this is a bonus!

Really like this the song has been around a while but everytime I hear it on the radio, in a shop, at the gym, find myself singing along. May not buy the album but love this track. Never heard of Robin Thicke and this may be a one hit wonder but its a great pop song.

Remember the Rowntree's Fruit Pastille's advert and slogan about being unable to eat them without chewing - well, don't tell me that you can't listen to this and, at the very least, not tap your foot! Before you know it, everything's dancing! Love it!

Kept hearing this song and thought it sounded like Robin Thicke. Once found it was him had to download. The song is catchy and really gets you in a happy mood. If you love Robin Thicke/Justin Timberlake then this is a must for your music collection.
