Controversy is brewing between the Robin Thicke and Marvin Gaye camps, as accusations of copyright infringement fly.

While the songs do share a similar sound, Robin Thicke is suing Marvin Gaye, denouncing his accusations as an attempt to claim ownership of an entire genre and not just one song.

Eddie was disappointed, for he thought that the conversation he had with bobby was one of the best they had ever had.
First Day of School
