He may have been known for his sultry voice, beautiful falsetto, and a collection of classic love ballads but it took Robin Thicke to pull out his dancing shoes on “Blurred Lines” to finally breakthrough the top 10 on the charts. Although this upbeat, fun side of Thicke has garnered him more attention and anticipation for his upcoming album, his second single and today’s Song of the Day feels right at home in Thicke’s comfort zone.
The story of Thicke’s up and down courtship of his teenage lover, “For the Rest of My Life” is a beautiful combination of storytelling and Thicke’s graceful voice. While “Blurred Lines” has made a home on the radio, expect to be hearing “For the Rest of My Life” at anniversaries and weddings for years to come. That is exactly where Thicke’s voice and this easily relatable ballad belong.
