    I like the Bruno Mars song. It reminds me quite a bit of Morris Day and the Time - who I also like...

    Actually the writers of the Marvin Gaye song are credited on the Amy Winehouse song. Check wiki

    I saw that but I'm hesitant to source wiki. Wonder if it was a case of Blurred Lines?

    Sampling is Perfectly legal and the Songwiter/band/record company gets paid for it.
