Pharrell Williams has been on fire lately, and "Marilyn Monroe" is no exception. Within the first few seconds of the song, the title explains itself with a 50s vibe intro, but Pharrell can't let his title stop there. "Marilyn Monroe" is Pharrell's confession to his diary about the "different" girl he wants--to whom not even Marilyn Monroe, Joan of Arc or Queen Cleopatra compares. Aside from the tight storyline and well-written lyrics, "Marilyn Monroe" boasts an impressively catchy beat and hook, making it nearly impossible to remain still throughout the song, not surprising with Pharrell's propensity for poppy, upbeat sound. In addition to all the musically sound elements in his newest release, "Marilyn Monroe" sends a positive message that women don't have to fit a mold to be desirable, which is certain to rocket the tune to just below "Happy" status.
