Robin Thicke has decided who he should best be compared to.
Surprisingly, it's not Paul Raymond and Peter Stringfellow:
''A lot of good white soul singers, like Hall & Oates and Michael McDonald, did soul music for a while then had their pop breakthrough. That's what's happening to me.This was in a piece in Vanity Fair. More like a sodding carnival of vanity.
''But I think John Lennon is blue-eyed soul. Bob Dylan is blue-eyed soul, Bruce Springsteen is blue-eyed soul.''
