One of my personal favorites is What’s Going On. Even today the social commentary embedded within the rifts of this song are still very relevant.
Please notice the use of actual instruments!!!
Marvin Gaye (April 2, 1939 – April 1, 1984), born Marvin Pentz Gay, Jr., was an American singer-songwriter and musician. Unfortunately the life of this great was taken at the hands of his pastorial father, the day before his 44th birthday. The collection of work that Gaye gave the world under the Motown label, was masterful to say the least. His work still serves as a blueprint to other R&B artists, seeking guidance on how to really croon.
