    This track has my favorite Motown lyrics but sonically, it's a bit of a wreck. I added some acapella bits, some additional percussion and rearranged it for spinning out.

    Marvin Gaye was one of many artists who shaped the sound and success of Motown in the 1960s, becoming the company's top-selling solo artist of that decade with a string of hits, including "How Sweet It Is (To Be Loved By You)", "Ain't That Peculiar", "I Heard It Through the Grapevine" and his duet singles with singers such as Mary Wells and Tammi Terrell. Because of this, Gaye was given the titles "The Prince of Motown" and "The Prince of Soul". Following the death of Tammi Terrell in 1970, Gaye went into seclusion, emerging the following year with "What's Going On" and its subsequent album, which helped to make him one of the first artists in Motown to break away from the reins of its production company to be his own artist.
