Marvin Gaye – A Voice made of Gold
Marvin Gaye was born in a quiet storm, destined to become one of the greatest singers in history.
A giant among Motown giants, one can only imagine how many babies were conceived to Let’s Get It On or one of his other masterpieces.
Marvin Gaye and Curtis Mayfield influenced Erykah Badu, D’Angelo, Raphael Saadiq, Maxwell, Sade, and every R&B and Soul artist to follow.
Marvin Gaye – Gold remasters hits that dominate quiet storms and other radio stations. Rumor has it; couples still conceive babies while listening to these cherished tunes.
If you do not have Marvin Gaye in your music collection, you should add him to your music collection.
Check out some of Marvin’s songs/videos below:
Marvin Gaye – Let’s Get It On (Soul Train)
Is Let’s Get It On the greatest slow song ever? If that is your opinion, you will get no argument from me. How many babies do you think were conceived listening to this song? In the video, I am surprised none of the girls on Soul Train passed out while listening to Marvin Gaye sing this beautiful, loving, sexual song.
Marvin Gaye – Sexual Healing
If Let’s Get It is the most sensual song ever, Sexual Healing is, well, the most sexual song. Songs like this make me believe there will never again be a singer quite like Marvin Gaye.
Marvin Gaye – What’s Going On
No homage to Marvin Gaye can be on the mark without covering his political/conscious side. Marvin looked around and saw the war in Vietnam and on the streets in predominantly black neighborhoods. Marvin used music as a platform to protest injustice, and What’s Going On is one of the all-time best protest songs.
