Music Monday: Blurred Lines by Robin Thicke

Continuing the ‘guilty pleasures’ theme…

There was a big uproar when this song came out because it was ‘demeaning to women’.

I know you want it
But you’re a good girl
The way you grab me
Must wanna get nasty
Go ahead, get at me

Apparently Pharrell Williams, who wrote it, said it was meant to empower women, but I can’t see how that was possible. I mean, really?

When you got them jeans on
What do we need steam for
You the hottest bitch in this place

I kind of looked at all the controversy and said “Whatever”. That song is freaking catchy. It just makes you wanna tap your fingers and toes… Doesn’t it? Aw come on, doesn’t it?

But just for balance, I’m going to share this parody made by a bunch of Auckland law students. *Smirk*
