Songfacts®:

  • Thicke promises a woman on this '80s disco-vibed track not only his money, but his very soul. The song was inspired by the romantic adventures that the singer has had with his wife, actress Paula Patton, in Paris.
  • Thicke revealed to Billboard magazine that the Blurred Lines album was a project aimed at giving listeners a way to ease their worries. "I think I just ended up making an escape album," he shared. "I never plan it, but I think I did my best to make my wife and I have a chance to escape every night, and I felt like that made for a great album."
