    Robin Thicke featuring TI and Pharrell Williams – Blurred Lines (2013)

Here’s an idea… take a song that’s quite depressing but has quite a good melody to it and just… change the words. That’ll make a brand new song. That’ll be totally fine.

It did quite well in US charts, but it was also chosen to be Mitt Romney’s campaign song so, you know, swings and roundabouts. Check out The White Stripes’ painfully similar original.

The White Stripes – As Ugly As I Seem (2005)
