I will never forget hearing the news that day. I was stunned to say the least. I have loved Marvin Gaye for years. He is missed but the music lives! Peace, Marvin.
There are three (3) things that are NOT going to happen today:1) I am not going to be a professional athlete and2) I am not going to be a billionaire and3) I am NOT going to sing like Marvin Gaye!Marvin Gaye . . . never to be forgotten and never to be equalled!!
Wholy Holy.....one of the most beautiful songs OF ALLLLLL TIME! Thank you Marvin...I've listened countless time and i can't wait to listen again. The whole album, but esp that song.

Zaitonia and Ronnie were white boys going to the Twenty Grand in Detroit to bowl for money, my buddy Richard was much better when bowling for money, it was amazing 1961-2 Marvin Gaye was in the bar lounge, he is my Soul brother singer with Stevie Winwood for rock and anything else We were fortunate to grow up on Kipling and the Boulevard across from Motown My wife Maureen and I lived on 12th street and graduated from Wayne StateSWEET MEMORIES
I always thought our record company would be something like Tam O’ Shanter Records or Tamalamasingsong
I am a big fan of Marvin Gaye's music I love my black music I'm old school so thank you all when you were born God broke the mold you're one of a kind I love you and I love trouble man my favorite I mean I love all of your music it touches my soul to hear you sing thanks for making me cry Rip😥😂

I often wonder what excellent music My Man Marvin would have created if he had lived longer. His early death was tragic. He left this world much too soon. RIP Marvin🙏🙏
I have this album. Marvin Gaye is a musical genius. After he left Motown and wrote and recorded his own music, he created his own sound, it was my favorite music then and now. Listen to Marvin on DVD. Marvin Gaye is my all time favorite. RIP Marvin Gaye.
My favorite artist and one of my favorite song
Marvin released "I'll Be Doggone" on this day in 1965. Written and produced by Smokey Robinson and with The Miracles providing backup vocals, "I'll Be Doggone" was Marvin's first million-selling 7" single! Listen: https://ClassicMotown.lnk.to/IllBeDoggone
Is it true that a dog did it with a princess?
Can you IMAGINE Marvin today "Only LOVE can conquer Hate"
Marvin Gaye helped to shape the sound of Motown he was the “Prince of Soul” mmmmm wish 🕊you were still here to just “bring it on” Marvin 🎼
Have you been hearing Marvin's sweet, soulful music this month in Starbucks? Great news: in celebrating #BlackHistoryMonth, his songs will be the featured playlist this week in Starbucks stores and their app! Listen here: https://lnk.to/MarvinAtStarbucks
Wow, I now have a reason to stop by Char-bucks 🙂, will have to try some white chocolate, hot chocolate !
Okay, once your customer began to listen to this genius music Man, they won't be able to stop.
If only Starbucks paid their taxes and supported our troops - seem to have got their priorities wrong!
Did you know that Marvin performed The Star-Spangled Banner at the NBA All-Star Game at The Forum on this date in 1983? (Special shoutout to Castle McQuade for this incredible graphic!)
There is an absolutely fantastic back story about how this almost didn't happen. It was in the LA Times Magazine many years ago.
Listening to one of the best entertainers ever in the background as I read this. Love and miss you, Marvin Gaye. Forever one of my favorites. ❤️
The BEST version of the Star-Bangled Banner that you will ever hear....Happy Valentine's Day, Marvin❤❤❤❤❤❤!!!!#

"Trouble Man" became Marvin's 15th Top 10 hit on the Billboard Hot 100 45 years ago today! Listen here: https://ClassicMotown.lnk.to/TroubleMan
Must be one of the greatest soundtrack albums of all time and certainly one of Marvin's greatest musical masterpieces. Priceless.
Marvin Gaye's music was the sound I grew up with as a teenager. Great times when I found my first love ! Very memorable ! 😍😍
Pimping cover too. The movie scene on the cover is a flap at the bottom that flips down to what? More Marvin, chilling like he wanna . It's subtle, but one of my favorite album cover tricks.
Six months after he began recording the song, Marvin released "What's Going On" on this day in 1971. "What's Going On" would reach the summit of the Billboard R&B chart in March of that year. https://ClassicMotown.lnk.to/WhatsGoingOn
Before his time .hesaw the future of the world but ya gotta really listen to the poems or lyrics to get the higher vibes . As in the 60s and early 70s times in this troubled world has surfaced again .I never thought I'd experience world turmoil again like to 60s And let's not forget Jimi Hendrix he and Marvin were way ahead of themselves. like Marvin..jimis poems or lyrics are mind boggling.
My all time favorite album. Played it so much during high school that it became grey. Brings back all the memories of the era. Ali vs Frazier I, Earl the Pearl spinning hitting fallaway fades over Walt Frazier. But first and foremost the timeless message that rings true for today as it will 50 years from now. Deep, timeless, introspective and prophetic, if there was ever a classic, this is it.
Marvin Gaye, born before his time, and also left us to soon. The greatest, or at least one if them, along with Sam Cooke
Marvin Gaye's second single for Motown was a cover of the Chordettes' "Mr. Sandman," released on this day in 1962. Listen here: https://ClassicMotown.lnk.to/MrSandman
We want to hear him sing not the stupid record's label ?
I never heard his version until now - superb (no surprise)
Loved his songs and they way he sang them... and Miss him..
On this date in 1981, Marvin released what would be his final album for Motown: 'In Our Lifetime' As smooth as ever, this album features "Life Is For Learning," "Funk Me," "Heavy Love Affair" (as you'll see in this clip) & more. https://ClassicMotown.lnk.to/InOurLifetime
So appreciative you share his clips with us but wish you could show them full length and not 30 seconds
So very sad, I miss his music..
Ich liebe seine Musik und vermisse ihn!

Marvin's soundtrack album for 'Trouble Man' was released 45 years ago today! Take another listen: https://ClassicMotown.lnk.to/TroubleMan
I have loved him since I was 12 years old. My wedding song was If this world was mine. Love is music always.
First thought Captain America: Winter Soldier. Great Music!
Marvin's voice goes in my eardrums and penetrates my soul giving me goosebumps on my arms. Trouble Man is one of my favorite Marvin Gaye songs. I enjoy watching the movie as well. His voice is amazing to say the least.
Straight from Marvin's 'In The Groove' LP, Motown shipped "I Heard It Through The Grapevine" as a single on this day in 1968. Guess what? It became the biggest-selling hit of Motown's first decade! Listen here: https://ClassicMotown.lnk.to/ThroughTheGrapevine
My goodnessit makes me feel old that :my man has been no longer with us at,73 boy do I miss him hewas to me apartfromsam cooke the onethat broke the music barrier gone but never never forgotten I will always love your music marvin till my ladt breath

Awesome singer with beautiful songs
53 years ago today, Marvin began his very first trip to Great Britain. To promote "How Sweet It Is (To Be Loved By You)," Marvin appeared on British TV programmes Ready Steady Go! and Thank Your Lucky Stars.
He left us his music. The soul in his voice lives forever.
Marvin Gaye will never be replaced by nobody one of the best. Grew up listen to his music!!😅
I know because I'm there every dayand I get Brits in droves..and I see the sparkle in the eyes when they see Marvin...his image.The power,pardon me,it's both spiritual and sexual...one of a kind

"I just want to stop—and thank you, baby..." On this day in 1964, Marvin released "How Sweet It Is (To Be Loved By You)." Take another listen: https://ClassicMotown.lnk.to/HowSweetItIs
Love him. Some of the greatest songs made.
I TELL YOUNG PEOPLE DON’T TALK ABOUT HOW GOOD MARVIN GAYE WAS UNLESS YOU GO ALL THE WAY BACK TO THE EARLY 1960s, when the man was helping shape MOTOWN. YOUNG PEOPLE DON’T HATE ON US BECAUSE WE HAD A CHANCE TO REALLY LISTEN TO THIS SINGER GROW INTO SUPERSTARDOM STATUS IN HIS OWN CLASS from 1962 until 1983. There’s no duplication of his voice and no movie acting that will give you or me the ultimate satisfaction of who he really was in the studio or on his music tracks because he was unmatched in this category, that’s why he’s missed. Some singers who became a legend and have died left us a music trademark to let us know they once existed and won’t be ever forgotten. THATS WHY HE WAS CALLED “ THE MAN “ I loved his voice, if I could be reincarnated, LORD I would wanna sing like this brother.
How sweet it ‘was’ in the 60’s, Marvin my all time favourite xxx
On this date 45 years ago, the movie Trouble Man, with a Marvin Gaye-written and -produced soundtrack, opened in New York. Motown issued the title track as a single soon after the film's release. Listen to "Trouble Man" here: https://classicmotown.lnk.to/TroubleMan
The 'Trouble Man' soundtrack was Marvin at the top of his game,the playing and arrangements are sublime. The man was a genius. Not many around now who could even get close to him.
Marvin Made no messes! .....ahhhhhh~ i come up hard, but that's okay~ trouble man, don't get in my way!
The musical arrangements on the title track are amazing.
The year was 1971 when his album came out with him having that black Pleather jacket on and we were all blown away.
Couldn't say it any better
Oh! Me too.

Marvin played the Nassau Coliseum in New York on his nationwide summer tour, tonight in 1974.
Was lucky enough to see most of the Motown artists live, but without doubt he was the best. Saw him at Bingley Hall in Birmingham (now the ICC) in the mid 70`s, a massive talent.
is there any footage of Marvin in New Westminster, BC, Canada? He played here once. :)thanks
I was too young back then but, I always connected with Marvin Gaye & his music. He will forever live on deep in my soul...

I have this album & was lucky to see Marvin live 3 times, first time at The Royal Albert Hall which was part of this tour , just the best , sadly missed X
MARVIN was the ladies man who was great impact on true love between a black man and black woman as couple husband and wife. There no true love between black men and women.
Love me some Marvin Gaye.!!! His music is awesome.!!The lyrics n his songs r meaningful & that's without a doubt.!!!!!🎼🎧🎶🎤🎹❤️️❤️️❤️️❤️️ His life is gone but his music is still strong.!!!
Marvin's debut studio album, titled 'The Soulful Moods of Marvin Gaye' was released on this date in 1961, fifty-six years ago. Was this record how you first listened to Marvin?
Love this Mans voice it send me on to another planet, he's records mean just as much today as they did when he first sang and wrote them gone to soon RIP Marvin keep the heavens rocking with that amazing voice of yours.
I really didn't know about the man or his music until his dad murdered him. After that, I bought several of his records and became a big fan. RIP Marvin.😢
Really, Our Government. "WHAT'S GOING ON " Is right.
In May of 1966, fifty-one years ago, Marvin released the album titled 'Moods Of Marvin Gaye.' Listen again: https://classicmotown.lnk.to/MoodsOfMarvin
So many greats but the greatest ( for me ), Let's get it on ...... you know what I'm talking about ......Come on baby ........ so many memorable times listening to this song!😉😊😉 Thank you Mr. Marvin Gaye. Never forgotten!
Just couldn't stop myself just now. Had to watch and listen to Mr. Gaye perform ' Let's get it on.... Absolute ..... ( can't think of the words ). On stage dressed in a dinner suit looking great and singing majestically with heart, soul, feeling and meaning. Still NOBODY to equal his physical and emotional presence. Always will be the best EVER for me.
I've ordered it but it's currently out of stock. Hopefully will be available soon.
Marvin's iconic and milestone album 'What's Going On' was released on this date in 1971. Celebrate the record: https://classicmotown.lnk.to/WhatsGoingOn
One of my very favorite Motown performers...great voice...smooth style....some classic songs. This is definitely one of them!
This CD still have so much powerful meaning 40 years later. A wonderful performer with a beautiful voice. Will always be one of his Greatest Hit.
My all-time fav. Mr. Marvin Gaye. Light years ahead of his time! Will never forget your songs, the memories that go with them or you. Thank you. RIP.
Marvin's “Take This Heart Of Mine” was released on this day 1966, soon to become his 16th R&B chart entry. The song would reach No. 16 on the chart.
Never heard this one before.
Golden voice :)
Pas encore beau , mais déjà Classy !!!!......

Marvin Gaye: May all-time favorite performer. No one can sing like he did and make you feel all the emotion he exuded. Rest In Peace forever you beautiful soul. You have not and will not be forgotten. <3 <3 <3
Whatever Marvin sings & who sings with is just AWESOME.!!!! His songs always carried a meaningful messages🎤🎤🎼🎼🎶🎹❤️️❤️️❤️️❤️️
R&Bs greatest Black solo male artiste of all times and teaming up with Tammi Terrell they became of the best duo in R&Bs history.
Marvin's “What’s Going On” climbed to its pop chart peak of No. 2, on this day in 1971. Read more here: https://ClassicMotownWebsite.lnk.to/VNCUxDL
Marvin Gaye... Mr Soul Man... the world lost the greatest singer of its time... I still play this album and get the same emotions as I did when I first heard it all those years ago... RIP Marvin xx
My favourite song from Marvin these words mean so much today as they did way back in 1971 when he release his album sadly missed but he will always be remembered for being one of the biggest songwriter and singer in the world love you loads Marvin rest in peace always be remembered with love.
It's a terrible shame that the same conditions exist today - the same heartaches - the same hopelessness - and wishing we could be in that park enjoying life like pictured here. Reminds me of going to Glenwood and Theodore Wirth park.
"Ooh, baby Ain't nothing like the real thing, baby Ain't nothing like the real thing" 🎶 Marvin & Tammi's track "Ain't Nothing Like The Real Thing," from the album 'You're All I Need' was released on this date in 1968. Listen here: https://ClassicMotown.lnk.to/MGAllINeed
Think there was more than music between them.Pure chemistry ,a duet never surpassed.Tragic such a waste of talent so young.He was good with Kim Weston but with Tammi pure magic!!😘
Marvin, with the benefit of hindsight, was greatly affected by the sudden, premature death of Tammi. She'd surely would have been destined for a great career..
"Ain't Nothing Like The Real Thing" was the very first Marvin and Tammi song I ever heard (I was four). Still puts a smile on my face to this day!🎵🎤❤❤
Marvin Gaye was recognized by the Recording Academy / GRAMMYs with a GRAMMY Lifetime Achievement Award, on this date in 1996.
Marvin will always be my number one,no one comes near to his voice,songs and love for all people. Will always be very much missed xxx💖
An everlasting majestic monument to what humanity and the world SHOULD be like. Marvin Gaye : his vision, compassion, heart felt love and concern will never be matched. Those that should have listened and acted didn't. Those that listened didn't have the power to make changes..... and sadly probably never will. 👿
Le plus grand chanteur de tous les temps sans exception ce type et juste un génie née et un génie mort !!!!!!! Sa musique traversera des générations entières à l infini il avait un temp d'avance sur tous combien de bébé son née grâce à cette homme que d émotion de sensation forte un tous puissant de la musique une voix de velours juste pffffffff et ces chansons tous ces albums nous casse le crâne d amour et de tendresse mais son album ( in our lifetime) est juste grandiose
"I've been really tryin', baby Tryin' to hold back this feeling for so long" ❤️️😉 Happy Valentine's Day!
' Let's get in on ..... Thee man, thee best .... not only for me but thousands of other mere mortals. Still ahead of his time even in death. Nobody to match his charisma, compassion, vision , songs and voice. Such a presence! Taken without reason. You will always be missed!😈
I love this Man and his music is amazing he was well before his time his music will live on never go away RIP Marvin always be remembered ,he was loved always will be sadly missed by all. X
I can listen, love this man's music every day. This is what defines his talent, way before his time & sad loss. Marvin Gaye legend brought so much happiness, memories for so many, so sadly missed
Get into the loving spirit with the Classic Motown Love Songs playlist, featuring Marvin's "Let's Get It On." https://ClassicMotown.lnk.to/MotownLoveSongs
I Love Motown and especially the late great Marvin Pentz Gaye.He would have been 78 on the 2nd April which by coincidence is my Birthday too. Not the same age mind lol
For me, his best song. Many nights with many tales to tell with Marvin and this song particularly in the background. God bless him for those magic moments!😈 Never to be forgotten.
I can remember that this song was scandalous at the time it was released. Now it is not. I loved Marvin and miss his genius.
One for the history books - Marvin’s track “What’s Going On” was released as a single on this date in 1971, six months after he began recording the masterpiece.
Anyone who never listened to this entire album should. What Marvin sang about back in 71 has continued throughout the years to this day. One of the best albums ever.
appropriate for today, indeed. make me wanna holler...
How fitting on this day...His words still rings out...."What Going On"
On this day in 1981, Marvin’s final album for Classic Motown, In Our Lifetime, was released. What is your favorite track from the album?
,"Love Me Now Or Love Me Later"Once upon a time, when you and me live in infinityThere were two of us, a God of love and a God of evilSomething about polarity - you know, day and nightBlack and white, hot and cold, wrong and right, life and death
Loved this album and the album cover photo. I use to look at it for hours wondering what it ment. Now as an adult I know what it means everything going on in this photo is what has happened in my future. Just amazing
"Life Is For Learning." The artist pays the priceSo you won't have to payIf only we would listenTo what they have to say
Marvin entered the charts with his album 'Here, My Dear" this week in 1979. Read more: http://www.udiscovermusic.com/under-the-radar
I have the 2-CD deluxe edition of this album. My all-time favorite song on it is "Anger". Marvin was right on the money when he sang that anger "can make you old", "can make you sick", and "destroys your soul".
His best Album imho. Everybody who does not know this album, and who considers him/herself a soul/funk fan, should add this one to his/hers collection. Amen :)
I just started listening to this album about 2 months ago. Guess I was too busy doing my own thing when it was released, to pay attention, but I LOVE it!!!! It shows his LOVE for Anna, through all the problems!!!!
The hottest hit of the New Year? Marvin Gaye’s “I Heard It Through The Grapevine,” was the first Billboard pop No. 1 of 1969.
just listen to his 1971 album even now the words can relate to todays troubles in fact when you listen to most of the early motown records ie the temptation the words are still so true. im so lucky to have been there when these great singers sang even sam cooke
Love that song still to this day even though it was recorded in 1969 it's still hot as it was then Marvin is a legend in all his own rights ( troubled man ) need i say more? R.I.P. Marvin u are so very deeply missed but never ever forgotten ever i don't think it's possible
I hate it was born to late i really hate i wasn't born when Motown was up and running before berry sold out and went to Cali that was unfair LMAO!! I'm serious it's unfair i should have been born back then and it feels like it i think i got mixed up Somehow lol i should have been born in the mid 50's so i could have lived and seen the 60's and 70's in all its splendor the hay day's babe lol
"I'd give anything to see A little Christmas tree And to hear, hear the laughter Of children playing in the snow To kiss my baby, under the mistletoe" Listen to Marvin's song "I Want To Come Home For Christmas" and more on the Motown Christmas playlist. https://ClassicMotown.lnk.to/ChristmasPlaylist
Marvin Gaye, the "Groove Maestro" of R&B..."Let's get it on.. .. If the spirit moves youLet me groove you goodLet your love come downOh, get it on, come on babyDo you know the meaning?I've been sanctified, hey heyGirl, you give me good feelingSo good somethin' like sanctifiedOh dear I, babyNothing wrong with loveIf you want to love me just let your self goOh baby, let's get it on
This Man has always sung with deep passions of Soul.My all time Favorite singer started in High School.Still listening to Your music Marvin.Like so many G.I.'s just getting back from a war or out Country.We want to know "What's going on" that's all.Was so far ahead of His Time. Rest In Peace.
Marvin Gaye was not only handsome but a great singer. Could and still listen to him and the other great singers The original Temptations, Mary Wells, Linda Jones(Hypnotize), etc..all day long.
Need a holiday gift idea for your favorite Marvin fan? Give the gift of music. Check out the Volume 3 Vinyl Box Set: https://ClassicMotown.lnk.to/MGVol3Az
Additionally, is "Where Are We Going?" on the Let's Get It On vinyl or is it only available on the deluxe edition CD? I would be so happy if it was
I would be in heaven if I had this! Maybe I need to get myself a gift!!
Anyone who is a fan of Marvin Gaye would have acquired all these years ago!
50 years ago on this date, Marvin & Kim Weston released the song "It Takes Two," from their duet album 'Take Two.'
Dam, guy could sing!
Loved Kim on Marvin and his girls With Tammy
The album is a nice listen, too...
Lifted from Marvin’s 'In The Groove' LP, the track “I Heard It Through The Grapevine” was released as a single today in 1968, and it became the biggest-selling hit of Classic Motown's first decade. Revisit the full album: https://ClassicMotown.lnk.to/InTheGroove
The legendary James Jamerson's best bass ever on this one. Even though it wasn't written by Gaye, he truly makes it his own. He sings those words with such soul that you feel real pain in what he's saying. They'll never be another like Marvin. He left us far too early.
MG's version was the third after Smokey Robinson and Gladys Knight...but MG's still the best, raw emotions and brilliant soul.
Sweet and smooth as silk, Marvin Gaye, what a talent that crossed our path! Great memories of unforgettable songs and the times they represent....God, is wonderful to be alive and hearty! God Bless!
