So I finally heard this song:

- It sucks
- Why am I the only one that realized it was a blatant rip-off of Marvin Gaye’s “Got to give it up”? Similar tempo and changes in rhythm from verse to chorus, very similar bass line and distant ‘cowbell’ sounding beat pops up in the background, etc. We have a bunch of smart audiophiles here, how come nobody else picked up on th--

*realizes Marvin Gaye is black and not a rapper*

Oh wait, that makes sense then.

Wait, just checked the wiki:

Quote
"Blurred Lines" was produced by Thicke and Williams with an intention of creating a sound similar to Marvin Gaye's "Got to Give It Up". The song was completed in almost an hour

Haha did I say blatant? I meant BLATANT

I heard it for the first time last week but didn’t know it was Blurred Lines. When I heard it I immediately was like “wtf is this Marvin Gaye ripoff”. I didn’t realize it was Blurred Lines till today.

I’m good at avoiding this cookie-cutter crap in general. I can’t believe how many of the elite TRTSM music listeners like this shit, y’all are slippin’.

But he's the greatest Canadian actor, so....I'm not saying he should make a habit of it, but I'll look the other way once or twice.

This song plays a hundred times a day on the radio at work. I was 100% sure one of the lines mentioned Shane Battier, but a google check of the lyrics reveals that to not even be close to right. The song was cooler when I thought they said Shane Battier.

haha yeah, that's what I was saying bro. It's not like the post after the one I quoted showed that I saw  it was in Wiki long before I heard the song ::)

Anyway, I'm glad these guys had to pay up. The Marvin Gaye Estate deserves that money.

I was speaking to posters on the board with that line because it didn't seem like anyone here caught it, read the original post. In the next post, it was made clear that I saw it in Wiki and realized it was a well-known thing before I had even heard the song.

I don't know how much clearer I can make all that, it feels like I'm talking to Jingus.

Obviously this song is a blatant ripoff, but this is kind of a weird judgment because the percussion and the vocal performance (the most derivative parts of "Blurred Lines") are not copyrightable elements and from what I've read the jury wasn't even allowed to hear the original "Got to Give it Up" in court.  So we're supposed to believe that a bunch of people who had never heard either song before, and weren't even allowed to hear the infringed song, decided that the chord progression and melody of the two songs, based on the sheet music, were so similar as to constitute infringement, and I'm not sure that's the case.  My heart says they made the correct decision, but my head feels like this isn't quite right. 



CAN'T YOU SEE THE DIFFERENCE

Also, I laughed at Nona Gaye crying while talking to the press like she was at a funeral.  Jeez, you just made 7 million bucks from a rape anthem, smile a bit!

I don't get how chord progression even matters here. You can't copyright a chord progression; there's only a finite number of them!

I won't argue that the Gaye estate didn't deserve some compensation, but I really don't like the precedent this verdict may set.

So was the ruling about ripping off a song, or more specifically about not following proper protocol (and paying royalties) when ripping off a song?
