Pharrell Williams and Robin Thicke Head to Court Over Marvin Gaye Copyright-Infringement You Be The Judge

Robin Thicke took the stand Wednesday to face the family of Marvin Gaye, which has claimed his hit “Blurred Lines” ripped off Gaye’s song, “Got to Give It Up.”

Thicke admitted that “Got to Give It Up” is one of his favorite songs, and that it’s a classic.

He’d previously said as much in a TV interview, but then claimed that he gave that quote while under the influence of alcohol and Vicodin.

In a lawsuit they filed in 2013, Thicke, Pharrell Williams and Clifford Harris Jr. (aka, T.I.) defended themselves against reported accusations by Gaye’s loved ones that the singers stole parts of “Got to Give It Up,” for “Blurred Lines.” However, in October, a judge sided with the Gaye family, ruling that their musicological experts had given enough evidence to allow the case to go to trial.
