Anyone else heard Thicke's "When I get you alone"?

It uses a Beethoven sample (you'd definitely recognize it if you heard it), and it's a groovy song!

The video features the singer riding on a bycicle, riding around the town, delivering mail to various places, and occasional dancing.

Dumb thing to sample...he went from being "Dr. Seaver's son" to being "that Beethoven wannabe DJ".

Him and Crazytown should tour together.

Dr Seaver's son? I don't know about that, this Beethoven-sample song is the first thing I ever heard from him...

Not related, but I saw Madonna's American Life video (the new version, with flags) - and it has, among others, the flag of my country! During the rap, when she sings "I have a jet" you can see it. That was also the best thing about it, though.
I thought "music" was a bad song, but American Life... There is virtually no melody - just the computery sounds, the lyrics are just no good. And that HAS to be the worst rapping I ever heard.

u2girl, "computery" sounds are a billion times better than your typical garbage unimaginative guitar chord trash.

as for the song, i havent heard it.

Not if it's Cher in an echo box, or whatever the hell that effect is that she used in the "hit" song she had a 2 or so years ago.

bear

I don't know...sometimes effects can be cool - if they don't drown out the tune. (hm...I kind of liked the effect from Cher; until others started copying it)

Hey U2girl,

From what I've heard, the song is pretty groovy, but I have not heard the whole thing.

And the Dr. Seaver stuff--the singer's father used to be on a popular American sitcom called Growing Pains, which was kind of cheesy and family-oriented. Kirk Cameron got famous for being on the show, if you've heard of him. Anyway, that's just fyi, in case you haven't figured out what everyone else is talking about.

I don't know about sampling Beethoven, but the guy seems funky. I'd give the rest of his music at least one listen.

He didnt necessarily sample Beethoven, but he did sample the disco hit "Fifth of Beethoven" which you can find on the Saturday Night Fever soundtrack.

That being said, I quite enjoy that Thicke song, and the video that accompanied it. I heard that the rest of his album is quite inconsistant in comparison to the song.
