Is ‘Blurred Lines’ The Worst Song Ever?
Is “Blurred Lines” the worst song ever? Rob Sheffield with Rolling Stone thinks so. He compares the sound of Robin Thicke’s mega hit to that of Adam Sandler relieving himself on Marvin Gaye’s grave. Suits & countersuits have been filed between Thicke & Gaye’s family over copyright infringement. The video has been viewed more than 230,000,000 times.
I’ve been in the radio business a long time. I’ve played lots of songs on the air that topped the charts, but haven’t withstood the test of time. People often disown having ever been a fan of songs like Starship’s “We Built This City,” Dire Straits’ “Money For Nothing,” Debby Boone’s “You Light Up My Life,” etc.
Will Blurred Lines become a “Classic?” I doubt it. One thing’s for Sure, Sheffield’s article will be cheered… and jeered. What’s your opinion? Great song… or piece of crap?
