"In my old town, there is no street with my name/No crown, I am no king" —Robin Thicke
As one of the album’s only toned-down tracks, “The Good Life” is a retrospective look at how Thicke views his past and future. With his old friends, family, and life lightly mocking him for not being “famous” yet, Robin judges his own career and future. Unlike other living legends, there is no throne, nor even a street, named for #Thicke in Los Angeles. In a city of superstars, what’s another singer? He may get to push Bentleys, but he may never gain the approval of those he left behind, a sad consequence of fame.
