if you think funk is dead, then you are funked up

DISCLAIMER: I am calling it, friends. These two new jams will definitely be on the summer 2013 top ten list. Be prepared to hear these beats at stop lights through open car windows, beach parties and weddings. 

Robin Thicke and Daft Punk are currently doing everything right. Pairing up with musical mastermind, Pharrell Williams on both artist’s new singles is a match made in heaven.

Tracks “Blurred Lines” and “Get Lucky” are undeniably groovy. I almost don’t even have to put into words why you should like these songs. If either of them don’t make you smile, tap your feat or shake your groove thang, than you have no business being a sane human being.

“Blurred Lines” samples Marvin Gaye’s “Got to Give It Up”, which was quite brave, but Thicke manages to do it justice, combining his smooth voice and sexy lyrics with this classic R&B beat. You really have to admit that this song is a great take on an old, soulful sound that we haven’t quite heard in recent years. Kudos to Thicke, T.I., and Pharrell.

And if one great song wasn’t enough, Pharrell also paired up with Daft Punk on their highly anticipated new album, Random Access Memories. Much like “Blurred Lines”, ”Get Lucky” also has a 70s throwback/disco vibe which should also get all you kids on the dance floor. It’s smooth, it has swag, and it only confirms that dance music is king in today’s pop hit list.

seanskisez: That Pharrell is on fire!

    Thicke can do no wrong imo. I saw him at HOB a few years ago and he’s just as magical live. If he ever comes back, I’ll be first in line.
