It seems that "Blurred Lines" rips off "Got To Give It Up".

So much so that law suits are in preparation.

Jack Ashford (who played on Marvin's track) has his say on the subject ...............

 thought it would be a legal thing using a slightly doctored backing track, if not legal yes its a rip off

found it interesting Jack Ashford saying the instruments used on GTGIU were a tambourine, a coke bottle and a fork.

 

Always thought I could hear spoon and jar on Proffessionals and Patti & Emblems?

I agree with Jack. You can't copyright a rhythm. Also, musically, Marvin's record, whilst brilliant, really was all over the place. The way Jack described it, is exactly how I thought it was made. A pure jam.
