Marvin Gaye: What’s Going On

Many great albums and songs have been written following a failed relationship, the death of a close friend, financial woes or a creatively unfulfilling yet successful career. For Marvin Gaye, ALL of these things factored in the creation of What’s Going On.

Chuck in a dose of existential angst and fears of an oncoming ecological disaster, and it’s amazing that it barely passes the 35 minute mark. A true classic album, with a deep spirituality that gets to the heart of ‘soul’ music and still resonates today.
