When Did This Happened? Top 40 Radio Sounds Like 70's R&B #BlurredLines
Maybe Robin Thicke's hit song Blurred Lines is less about ("you know")...and more about re-packaging Black Music from the 1970's into hit songs for today. Everything that goes around, comes around, right?
No doubt everyone has heard the connection between Robin Thicke's hit song and Marvin Gaye's "Got Give It Up", so there needs to be an investigation throughout the entire music industry before ALL MUSIC ON POP RADIO sounds like music from Black AM Radio Stations on the right side of the dial. Can't find them? Trust me. They use to be there. We must discontinue this trend immediately...
Even J. Anthony Brown of the Tom Joyner Morning Show said that the Steve "Silk" Hurley remix of those two songs was someone else's homework. Oh, it's not just Robin Thicke that's guilty either. Bruno Mars, Justin Timberlake, and Pharrell you are all on notice. Who knows what's next? Maybe the radio industry will actually make DJ's crossfade songs, cue up records, play and take listener phone calls & requests!!!
You figure out which ones are from today and which ones are from the 70's. Bet you or Big Mama can't figure it out!
