Hanson vs. Robin Thicke: Whose Win-the-Girl-Back Song Is Better? – Readers Pollby Michelle McGahan | PopCrush
When Robin Thicke premiered his new song ‘Get Her Back’ at the 2014 Billboard Music Awards, the track’s title (and premise!) totally reminded us of Hanson‘s 2013 single ‘Get the Girl Back.’ Which artist’s win-her-back song is better?
Hanson’s ‘Get the Girl Back’ is an impossibly infectious tune –and the lead single from the band’s most recent album, ‘Anthem.’ In addition the fact that the music video is chock-full of celebs like Nikki Reed, Drake Bell, and Kat Dennings, ‘Get the Girl Back’ is endlessly catchy, filled with addictive hooks and fast-paced handclaps. The song might not be autobiographical — after all, Isaac, Taylor and Zac have all been married to their respective wives for years — but it doesn’t need to be. And if you’ve ever heard the band perform it live, you know that it’s a straight-up, Taylor-on-tambourine, audience-clapping, all-out jam sesh.
Robin Thicke has been crazy vocal about winning back his estranged wife, Paula Patton. So it comes as no surprise that ‘Get Her Back’ (off of his upcoming album, ‘Paula’) is pretty obviously about Patton. With lyrics like “I gotta treat her right / I gotta cherish her for life,” Thicke pours some serious emotion into the heartfelt ballad — and it seems like he knows exactly what to do to in order to woo Patton. The only question is: Will it work?
So, which artist has the better win-her-back song? Cast your vote for Hanson or Robin Thicke in the poll below!
