Wake Forest 27587 Magazine | Summer 2018 25 been viewed by more than 421 million. The song, according to Rolling Stone Magazine, is a call to suntanned flesh and West Coast pride that Perry calls "like roller skating on a rainbow. " Blurred Lines Robin Thicke / Pharrell This R&B song took Robin Thicke to chart nirvana in 2013 with a 33-week reign on Billboard's Hot 100. But in some ways, it was deemed too hot, sparking a legal fight by singer Marvin Gaye's estate, which argued successfully that "Blurred Lines" infringed upon Gaye's '70s chart-topper "Got to Give it Up." As for its meaning, one Billboard op-ed writer put it this way: "The song's lyrics led many listeners to believe that its underlying notions juggled with the idea of sexual consent and objectification of women, while others argued that it was just a catchy, harmless reworking of the Gaye classic." Party Rock Anthem LMFAO Released in 2011, this No. 1 hit -- featuring British singer Lauren Bennett and American music producer GoonRock -- was picked up by Ohio University's marching band in a video that went viral, broadcast in a Kia Soul commercial, and heard on more than few television series, such as in the first episode of "Awkward." Hey, "everybody just have a good time" is its mantra. California Girls David Lee Roth This 1985 cover of the Beach Boys hit (with background vocals by Beach Boy Carl Wilson) hit No. 3 for David Lee Roth of hard-rock Van Halen fame. It remains the classic tribute to East Coast girls and Southern girls but mostly "the cutest girls in all the world" from California. Summer Love Justin Timberlake This 2006 release from the 1990s boy band NSYNC veteran Justin Timberlake didn't disappoint nor forget the fans of old. Said one New York Times reviewer : "The Old Justin swooped in regularly to reassure the tweens. During "Summer Love" he cooed, "I can't wait to fall in love with you."
