The other night 'Nightline' was interviewing Smoky Robinson and they asked who was his favorite musical artist and he didn't hesitate at all and said Marvin Gaye. Smoky said he still listens to Gaye's most popular album 'What's Going On'. He went on to say that Marvin Gaye was way ahead of his time in music and lyrics.
I couldn't agree more. His music is timeless and sounds as good today...maybe better.
Marvin Gaye 'Mercy Mercy Me' from the 'What's Going On' album. 1971
