This track gets a 10 rating from me, primarily because it's got a GREAT groove and the lyrics helped me turn from a wallflower into someone who would actually dance a bit.  Considering I never liked dancing, that's one hell of an impact a song can have.  PEACE, GROOVE and Long Live RP!!

Some day you have to (or, maybe you already have) write a book (or comment) on what goes on in your Las Vegas hotel room. So many questions...like, why do you live in a hotel room? Why are there always people there, dancing? Is all of this merriment somehow related to work? My imagination has run wild with possible scenarios, but I'm guessing the truth is somewhat mundane. Some help would be appreciated. -Nosey in New York
I'm cogitating right now that perhaps the song "Hotel California" was written as an Ode to Romeotuma's room at the Hotel Steglitz in Berlin?
OK, back to cogitation.

Today is my Friday with a 3 day weekend ahead of me.  This is EXACTLY what I needed/wanted to hear this morning!

Thanks for clarifying; something seemed amiss in my sonic memory of being at a dance party at 15 vs 9 and hearing this tune.

Watching the Soul Train dance line on TV on Saturday mornings.

No matter where I am or who I'm with, just gotta take a dance break when Marvin Gaye is playing.... turns me into an ecstatic, happy, dancing child instantaneously.  What an incredible legacy!

No. Seriously, no. I like Beck, but, eh, no. If what you really meant was that it reminds you of Beck somehow, then, OK, but "sounds just like"? And yes, I see you winking, still, categorically: no. Nor does Beck "sound just like" Marvin. I, you, uh...  No.

That may be true, but what do either of those hacks have to do with Marvin Gaye or this song?

Vanilla Ice ripped off Bowie like Thicke ripped off Gaye. Both were sued and lost.

Imitated, never equaled.

What the hell! Robin Thicke on Radio Parad....  Oh ha ha ha. Nevermind. It's Marvin Gaye... the guy that stole Robin Thicke's sound. ;-)

Yes, the above is all sarcasm... before I start a war.

Glad the jury ruled in favour of Marvin Gaye.

I am not familiar with that song...fortunately.

Preserve your innocence at all costs!

(But if you made it through last summer when the song was played constantly on junk radio, passing cars, and in all kinds of public places, you are probably safe now...)
