Need episode about Marvin Gaye Robin Thicke situation

Postby dalcowboiz » Thu Mar 12, 2015 2:57 am

I just really want to see an episode making fun of that situation. Honestly I can't understand why anyone would want to file a suit when those songs don't really sound alike in the least bit. I can just imagine Cartman writing a song and then getting everyone in trouble for copyright infringement and getting rich. Or something like that.

Wasn't this sort of done with Chef's Stinky Britches song? (which by the way South Park Marilyn Manson did best IMO)

Yeah. That one had Alanis covering Chef's song without permission. The "Blurred Lines" case nit-picks about which parts of "Gotta Give It Up" were copied without permission. We're not even talking about sampling here. :/

I heard about this on NPR radio last week. I still haven't heard the two songs so I have no idea if they are alike or not. I only remember Gaye from "Sitting on the Dock of the Bay" which I think was his song or maybe not. And Pharrell did "Happy" which I like the one that the Iranians did and got whipped for. Pharrell also has a Arby's hat that he will not do commercials for. Anyways if the songs are alike then the decision to pay out cash was right. I'd like to see Pharrell with a horsey sauce addiction and where he steals music from Lorde.
What seems to be the officer problem?

Sitting on the dock of the bay was Otis Redding. Marvin Gaye did What's Going On and Sexual Healing.

If they do that, they should include the Under Pressure / Ice Ice Baby past situation.
