Happy Birthday Marvin Gaye!

Marvin Gaye would’ve turned 81 years old today if his father didn’t fatally shoot him on the eve of his birthday in 1984.My generation grew up on the baby-making music of R. Kelly. Well, growing up my parents spun the Motown sounds on vinyl almost daily. Loved it! Marvin Gaye was all that and a bag of chips in my eyes with hits like I Heard It Through the Grapevine, Let’s Get It On, I Want You, Mercy, Mercy, Me, What’s Going On, Ain’t Nothing Like the Real Thing and the Columbia Records hit, Sexual Healing. There are many more where that came from. His music is timeless. You can play his music today and still want to buy it, make a baby or do a two-step. I guess that’s why Robin Thicke found so much success with Blurred Lines. That music!! LOL. Anyway, this is one of my favorite Marvin Gaye jams in all of its acapella glory!. Do you hear how he uses his voice as a musical instrument? So crisp, clear, noiice!!

I know you were able to bob your head even with the music accompaniment!
