Jimmy Fallon has found a way to make Robin Thicke's "Blurred Lines" palatable to even the staunchest critics: have the Roots perform it with kids' toys. You can listen to it almost guilt-free, until you think about how creepy it is for a song with "rapey lyrics" to be performed with elementary school instruments.
