by Charlie Puth ft Meghan Trainor
So this afternoon I was innocently driving home when all of a sudden I was attacked by this song called 'Marvin Gaye'. I didn't deserve it. "Let's Marvin Gaye and get it on, you've got the healing that I want, just like they say it in the song, until the dawn, let's Marvin Gaye and get it on." After those opening lines I was considering crashing my car or taking the emergency exit and rolling out the door and into traffic to get away from it. Can this song just not? Can Charlie Puth not? Can Meghan Trainor not? Can the sped up beat and music that appears to have been appropriated from Paloma Faith's 'Only Love Can Hurt Like This' not?
And seriously, can everyone please leave Marvin Gaye alone? In death, the Motown icon can not catch a break. When people aren't stealing his music and making kinda rape-y songs they're just going all out to tarnish his name with absolute shit, like this track from 'All About That Bass' girl and whoever Charlie Puth is. Enough is enough. LEAVE MARVIN ALONE! Someone go make that video. A strong contender for worst song of the year.
Matt Bond gives 'Marvin Gaye' zero heads out of five...
