When Marvin sings it makes you wanna get it on,
By A Customer
This review is from: The Very Best Of Marvin Gaye (Audio CD)
To say that Marvin Gaye was one of the greatest artists of all time is somewhat demeaning to the power and the emotion he puts into all of the songs on this CD, from the pop bubblegum of Hitch Hike and How sweet it is, to his Duets with his soul mate Tammi Terrell including the beautiful Ain't no mountain high enough and the Lesser known of his classics like Ego tripping out and Trouble man, this record has it all in abundance, you can tell when he sings his duets he really does feel for these women and the way Marvin sings his love songs he can melt the hearts of even the hardened heavy metal thrash head.
Billie holiday is the only person that belts out more emotion into her songs and it's not just a coincidence that both of them were troubled souls.
It seems the harder your life is the greater the artist (just look at westlife).
In retrospect all Marvin has to do for me is open his mouth and I can here love and emotion, he serenades me all the way and there is no-one else like him ever to walk on the stage.Thank-you Marvin Gaye for the hours of musical pleasure you have given me.
