I still haven't heard the album but it can't be that good if that's the second single - this was the big dick song that leaked a few weeks ago. It's a major step down.
It would be funny if this sounded just like What's Going On?
The 'people' in the bleachers look like cardboard cut-outs. In fact the whole video looks like it cost $1.98.
Am I the only one who thinks his pophits all sound like Prince?
R5 Please! This clown wishes he sounded like Prince.
I really wish he'd release OOH LA LA and PRESSURE. Those two are guaranteed hits.
His cute kid Julian appears a couple of times in the clip, at the 0:54 and the 2:07 marks.
I bet ole Janbot is pleased that Janet's influence keeps on.
As noted in another review, this is something of a knock-off of "When I Think of You". It was really making me think of that and I'm glad someone else saw it.
I imagine Janbot isn't in to the douchetastic Thicke, but I bet he's Team Robin over Team Justin!
The guy from "Charles in Charge"?
He doesn't move. His videos suck and his "music" sucks and he's homely.
Horrible. Please let his 15 minutes be 6 or 7.

I sure am!
And I actually like Thicke...
I hate that there was so much hype about the Stingettes and Passionettes being in it, and then they barely WERE.
That boy is just vulgross!
Can't wait for the inevitable Robin Thicke ballad to be released.
It will be called "Eye Wanna Eat UR Pussy" and will feature NeNe Leakes in a bubble bath, Robin wearing a black suit with no pants, scented candles, the new iPhone 5C, and a cameo by Miley's distended tongue.
That was pretty funny, R14!
I wish he would give it to me. I think he's dreamy.
It sounds like Prince
I hope the feminists parody it and make it way better.
--Song is a complete non-starter. No build, no payoff. The insipid lyrics are the cherry on that shit sundae.
--Video does indeed look cheap--even the way its filmed seems amateurish. Fun to watch the pretty girls dance, though.
--Enjoyed R14's post except the bit about Thicke not wearing pants. Only women get naked in his videos, silly R14!
--This video confirms that Thicke's success with BL is a one-time thing. Bye, jerk. Hopefully better (black) singers will replace you.
It is so shit it makes me want to abort my brain, you know what I said when I heard it?
Get me knitting needle!
I just do NOT understand the appeal for this guy. He's got zilch sex appeal for me and looks ridiculous when trying to be sexy. He reminds me of the creepy older guy who should have graduated from university years ago but still hangs around campus with the 20somethings to "find himself".
Do you think his parents show his videos to their friends?
Never r19, white flyover tards love him.
Robin Thicke has a big dick.
R21 nails it. Guys his age don't usually play the oversexed 16 year old card in music videos.
I can't imagine women embracing him with his misogamist videos and image.
r21 and r25 are tiresome fraus.
Well, it doesn't exactly make my ears bleed but it doesn't do much ELSE either.
He doesn't move, doesn't dance, just stands there posing and pointing and smirking with those child bearing hips. He sounds like Prince but he isn't Prince. He rips off Marvin Gaye and Janet Jackson and he isn't Marvin Gaye or Janet Jackson. His lyrics are supposed to he "shocking?" "I've got a big dick for you?" What is THAT? Clever? Eye roll.
HE IS DERIVATIVE. And, to quote Madonna, REDUCTIVE.
After hearing Blurred LInes a gazillion times on the radio this summer, I am officially over Robin Thicke
I likes the song at first, but it's grown tired. I can't really say I'm even interested in hearing any new music from him.
BUT - he's definitely better than Justin Timberlake. JT's new album is horrendous IMO. And that new single he has with Jay Z "Holy Grail" is horrible. Why does JayZ insist on saying UH UH UH in the background in all of his songs. That entire song is a train wreck.
Is it a cover of the Jordan Knight song?
He gives me the creeps. He just looks so slimy and gross.
JT's new album is fucking awesome and also is irrelevant to a discussion of Robin Thicke.
He just recorded a duet with Barbra Streisand. I can't wait to hear that.
[quote]BUT - he's definitely better than Justin Timberlake. JT's new album is horrendous
I couldn't agree more. Of course, Thicke isn't Prince but he seems nearly as talented as Prince compared to Timberfake.
Does he really need those black rappers in the song in order for it to be a hit?
I CAN'T STAND the way they pronounce "do" like "doh-u." What would Henry Higgins have to say about this?
God damn, where is George Zimmerman when you need him?
It just seem like the music that Thicke, Timberlake, Beiber and Cyrus make is just a parody and mockery of black culture. That Thicke video looks like a joke with all the black women shaking their booty. Sorry but Timberlake and Thicke are corny. If I want to hear someone singing soulful falseto I'll listen to Phillip Bailey, Eddie Kendricks or Curtis Mayfield not some poser former disney mouseketeer.
R37, Thicke sounds nothing like Prince vocally. Prince falseto is very underrated. How can you even mention Prince and that buffoon in the same sentence?
I meant R27.

I'm sure that's coming at some point. Blurred Lines aside, he already previously ripped off Marvin Gaye before that with Million Dolla Baby (Trouble Man). He owes Gaye's estate big time money and he knows it.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
