If the family of Marvin Gaye can sue Pharrell Williams and Robin Thicke and make them pay $5million for Blurred Lines because it replicates the “feel” of a song, then Pat Benatar could certainly go after David Guetta on this one. “Love Is A Battlefield” anyone? Both are great pop tunes. Guetta has proven his studio craftsmanship time and again and this record is no exception. It sounds just like my radio did in 1984, which is clearly what he was going for (and the video confirms this.) Speaking of copying ideas, the video is clearly borrowing from Ready Player One as the protagonist’s avatar interacts with with someone in a virtual online world who isn’t who they would purport to be.
