Another Lawsuit? Robin Thicke Stole THIS Marvin Gaye Song, Too (Listen)


Robin Thicke is really just a Marvin Gaye tribute act. A federal jury decided yesterday that his “Blurred Lines” ripped off Gaye’s “Got to Give it Up.” The Gaye family won $7.4 million.

But what about Marvin’s “Trouble Man”? Thicke stole the whole thing and called it “Million Dollar Baby.” He included the line “Luck be a lady tonight” which he ripped from “Guys and Dolls.” Does the guy have an original thought in his head? What’s the explanation for this?
