"Magic" by Robin Thicke

Whereas most of the offspring of faded celebrities seem to prefer to haunt the glossier places of Los Angeles trailing an entourage of douchebags* while spending their parents' residuals before estate taxes take whatever's left, Robin Thicke has instead forged himself a career as a singer-dancer. Not that he hasn't had the occasional coke-fuelled binge with a passel of hookers** - and I couldn't say one way or the other whether or not he has (or hasn't) - at least he's managed to record himself a few songs along the way.

The only child of fellow pop culture icons Alan Thicke and Gloria Loring, Thicke is responsible for the sultry blue-eyed soul of Magic (and the lithe moves that accompany it in the video, as well) which originally appeared on his 2008 third album Something Else.

*In case you were wondering what the collective noun for douchebags was...
**'Passel' is
not the collective noun for hookers; I believe it's 'hip-hop video'.
