There are still 28 days left in December, but that doesn't mean we can't go ahead and begin looking at the year in review, starting with this video of the 20 most overplayed songs of 2013 performed in a one minute mashup.

From "Get Lucky" to "Royals" to "Roar," Chad Neidt covers this year's top songs in this guitar medley. Also included are "What Does The Fox Say," Miley Cyrus' "Wrecking Ball," and Robin Thicke's summer anthem "Blurred Lines."

Robin Thicke is being sued by the estate of Marvin Gaye for stealing from not one but two of the late music icon's songs, according to court papers.

The family initially claimed that Thicke's hit "Blurred Lines" plagiarized Gaye's 1977 track "Got to Give It Up." Now they say he uses two Gaye songs.

Thicke, Pharrell Williams and Clifford Harris, Jr. (T.I.), who wrote "Blurred Lines," preemptively sued Gaye's estate after their complaints in August.

The trio claimed that "Blurred Lines" was "starkly different" from "Got to Give It Up," that Gaye does not own a genre, and that the claims were damaging.

Now Gaye's family have filed a countersuit against Thicke alleging he ripped off "Got to Give It Up" and "After the Dance" for his 2011 album Love After War.

With "Blurred Bynes," a group of drag queens have done the impossible, covering Robin Thicke's summer smash and calling out troubled actress Amanda Bynes.

Okay, maybe not the impossible. But didn't see that one coming, did you?

L.A. drag queens Willam Belli, Detox (both ex-contestants on RuPaul's Drag Race) and Vicky Vox have just released the video lampooning Amanda Bynes' wild antics.

Watch it in its NSFW glory below:

The three queens sing seductively, "OK she smoked some weed, you know you can't malign her. So high she tweets to Drake to murder her vagina."

Hashtag: #VAGACIDE.

Robin Thicke's "Blurred Lines" may be the song of the summer, but a parody called "Defined Lines" gives it a run for its money - and turns the tables on the taboo track.

An Auckland University student group, the Law Revue Girls, created "Defined Lines" in response to the criticism to the song, which some say is decidedly sexist.

The parody attempts to "define the supposedly 'blurred lines'" and declares: "What you see on TV / Doesn't speak equality / It's straight up misogyny."

Robin, Pharrell and T.I.? You all just got served.

Olivia Lubbock, one of the women featured, said:

Robin Thicke's "Give it 2 U" music video has been released, and it features some familiar imagery from what viewers witnessed at the MTV VMAs.

No, not Miley Cyrus Twerking. But not far off.

Suddenly, Thicke and Cyrus' somewhat random duet Sunday night makes a little more sense, given some of the similarities with the video he just dropped.

"Give It 2 U," which features 2 Chainz and Kendrick Lamar, is jam-packed with Twerking, foam fingers, dancers sticking their tongues out ... you name it.

All that's missing is Miley Cyrus herself, but she's clearly there in spirit. Watch Robin's newest music video above and cast your vote below ...

What do you think of "Give it 2 U"?

Robin Thicke, Pharrell and T.I. are suing Marvin Gaye's family and Bridgeport Records, insisting that their summer smash "Blurred Lines" is an original hit.

That's right ... the artist accused of ripping off an earlier work is the one suing, not the reverse, leading some to believe it's all part of a big PR effort.

The trio's omnipresent single has, in recent months, been accused of being a takeoff on Marvin Gaye's "Got To Give It Up" and/or Funkadelic's "Sexy Ways."

There has not been a whole lot made of this, though, which makes the lawsuit by Thicke, Pharrell and T.I. over "multiple adverse claims" seem dubious.

Robin Thicke's hit song "Blurred Lines" has been criticized for being too "rapey" by some women, and its uncensored video was banned from YouTube.

Make no mistake, though - it's a huge turn on to Mrs. Thicke!

"I love that song," Robin's wife Paula Patton told Chelsea Handler. "I don't know what it is, it just makes you want to dance and party and groove."

Paula Patton, Robin Thicke

"I watched that video. I was a little bit jealous, then I wanted to jump his bones. I was like, ‘I want to take you down right now.' That's how I know it's a hit!"

Not only that, Paula Patton was the one who convinced the singer to release the controversial "Blurred Lines" music video featuring topless models.

Paula explained, "It's funny, he came home and he was like, ‘I gotta be honest with you. Diane Martel, the video director, did an amazing job on it.'"

In "Furred Lines," a group of dogs cover Robin Thicke's summer anthem "Blurred Lines."

It's not nearly as likely to be banned by YouTube as the original, but it may also go viral!

In The Pet Collective's furry, funny parody, suggestive "Blurred Lines" lyrics like "you're a good girl" take on an entirely new meaning. Think about it.

"Stay if you want it. Sit if you want it. Beg if you want it." You're an animal.

Dogs also recently covered the Miley Cyrus Twerking ballad "We Can't Stop" with their own rendition "We Can Bark." We sense a theme here.

Stripped down covers of high-energy, fist-bumping pop songs are a dime a dozen on the web these days, but Robin Thicke's cover of "I Love It" by Icona Pop?

An unexpected, instant classic, for good reason.

The "Blurred Lines" and "Give it 2 U" singer stopped by BBC's Radio 1 Live Lounge last week and sang a mellow, piano-driven version of the track.

Robin's version may not want you to crash your car into a bridge and throw your hands in the air like you just don't care, but it's burning up the 'net.

Check it out below and you'll see why!

Robin Thicke has one-upped himself with "Give It 2 U," a new single featuring Kendrick Lamar that may be even more inappropriate than his last effort.

Thicke is having quite a year. The video for his smash hit single "Blurred Lines," the title track from his new album, has been criticized for being "rapey."

That controversy makes for an interesting backdrop to "Give It 2 U," an incredibly catchy throwback track featuring these surprising lyrics:

"I got this for you / a little Thicke for you / A big kiss for you."

"I got a hit for you / Big d--k for you / Let me give it to you."

Yeah. Not a lot of subtlety or innuendo required. Kendrick Lamar then raps about "d--k love" in his guest verse, in case you thought that was a one-off. 

As New York Magazine puts it, "'Give It 2 U' sounds like a late-Britney club cover of 'D--k in a Box,' minus fancy wrapping." Do you agree? Tell us below!
