or mediocre song, in my opinion.
I am insisting on no funeral, but if my brother outlives me, has one for me despite my wishes, I am giving him a play list to entertain the mourners that includes some Marvin Gaye songs.
His version of the Star Bangled Banner is off the charts!

@joe shikspack mourners in quotes!
Any promotion of Marvin as just a wonderful singer is so appreciated.
He was from the get go incredible. And I listened and watched his transition from his blues beginning to his very sophisticated war protests with awe, respect, and with all my love. He grew with the times, sang with the times.

@joe shikspack because it ain't nothin' but a real thing, baby.
I think I put this out before, but it bears repeating.
A woman was in my office with her 5 year old son. He grabbed a mint from my paralegal's desk. His Mom made him put it back so as not to spoil his lunch. He said, Aw, man! He got into some files and papers and his Mom made his put them back. Aw, man! He then got to running wild and his Mom made him sit still. Aw, man! His Mom told him it would be just a few minutes before they headed to lunch. Aw, man!
Years later, in my office, "Aw, man!" means something funny.
That kid just had us doubling over with laughter.
Aw, man!

Seems the Anthem requires at least 2 octaves. He had no problem.

@on the cusp NO problems singing The National Anthem. He was one of the greatest singers in any musical genre. He died way too young. Rec'd!!

the Super Bowl from growling level low to voice thinning high.
He did die way too young. And I have never quite accepted his father's story, but the authorities did, so that is that.
He is the person and music of my life, my youth, and I am better for it.

Marvin Gaye was amazing... I think it was said he had a 4 octave range... which I think is very near the legal limit? One of the best singers ever. Beautiful music he made.

Thanks! And have a goodun'!
