Starting off with quite the pair of songs. Counting Crows comes in for the first time since LEGO with an accurate representation of their sound. Pharrell wraps up his ‘3-pack’ before even getting Happy! Dude’s everywhere.

  • Counting Crows – Mr. Jones
  • Robin Thicke feat. Pharrell – Blurred Lines

All songs are available for $1.99 each.

    I’ve been requesting Mr Jones since RB1 so couldn’t be happier. Cannot wait to get the microphone out for it. 🙂

    Two songs that should be a lot of fun to play…

    Well, this certainly was a week for singers. And perhaps drummers, I can’t really judge that. Guitarists got a bit of a short shrift, but both songs were still pretty enjoyable once you got over the repetition (especially “Blurred Lines”, which was basically just one hook repeated over and over).

    That said, notice something missing from the artist credits on “Blurred Lines”? That’s not a mistake or a typo – the version of the song in RB is missing T.I.’s rap verse. I just thought I might mention that, since it surprised me that there even WAS a version of the song without that verse, much less that HMX decided it was the version they wanted for RB.

    In the ’90s and into the ’00s, they used to do “no rap” versions of R&B/pop songs pretty regularly for Top 40 radio (TLC songs were the victim of this a lot, which is a shame), but I thought hip hop was mainstream enough by this point that they didn’t do that anymore. I don’t know if that’s the case here or if there were rights issues with the verse (always a possibility when you’ve got a guest artist). There’s also a good chance that HMX didn’t request it that way and they just worked with whatever the label gave them (see also the shortened version of “Who Are You”).

      You’re over-complicating it. Just read the verse and you’ll see why they left it out.
