Today, Robin Thicke received a bit of a kicking on Twitter, after trying to do an online #askThicke Q&A. Arguably, he deserved it. His mega-smash 'Blurred Lines' is unashamedly misogynistic. He does, however, possess a strong vocal. Which is why we're posting this (2009!) Fear Of Tigers remix of his track, 'Magic' - turning it into a piece of floor-filling electronic magic called 'I Can Make The Pain Disappear'.
Benjamin Berry (aka Fear Of Tigers) also samples Deee-Lite's 'What Is Love?' - which I can confirm is nowhere near as fun as 'Groove Is In The Heart'. 'I Can Make The Pain Disappear', on the other hand, is a swirling, club smash. More importantly, it's one of the few times in his life that Robin Thicke has been made tolerable. The track was given away, along with the rest of Berry's debut album 'Cossus Snufsigalonica', and you can still pick it up for free via Last.fm.
