My Fave The King of Sexy Soul Marvin Gaye
Great pick. @TheManxMaverick
In this song I especially like how he reaches falsetto so effortlessly in the stanza where he uses the word “fool”.
@firemonkey I prefer his 70’s stuff better tbh,Let’s Get It On,What’s Going On and Trouble Man Soundtrack Albums that when he was at his best tbh
@fiemonkey Great Pick Love Sam aswell voice like velvet!
Re Gaye 60s vs 70s it would be boring if we all liked the same things best.
Can’t forget this…
@ilovethaifood Iconic Song and Album a Masterpiece one of the best albums of all time in my humble opinion
I think this is called ‘uptown soul’ .
Indeed. Much of the lyrics remain relevant even today. Not to mention Marvin Gaye’s phenomenal singing and stylish delivery. The man is one of the greatest singers I’ve ever had the pleasure of listening to. (On record of course, I’m sure his live performances were out of this world.)
Nina Simone is the Queen of soul
@ilovethaifood The What’s Going On Album as relevant if not more today in 2019 as in the early 1970’s
Sometimes people say, “… was ahead of their time.” Normally, I think nah, they were right on time… in this case though… really Marvin Gaye was clearly thinking with the future in mind.
