The Original Lazy Song
Almost everyone in America has heard Bruno Mars' latest single "The Lazy Song" and seen the clever music video. Not everybody has heard Sublime's "Burritos" from their classic eponymous final album. "I ain't gettin', I ain't gettin' out of bed today" sounds a lot like "Today I don't feel like doing anything/ I just want to lay in my bed" doesn't it? Not to say Bruno Mars stole anything from Sublime, or knock "The Lazy Song," in fact I really like that song and love its music video. But it's not a novel concept.
