Let’s Get It On…

I just found out that today in Washington, DC it’s Marvin Gaye Day (you can tell I’m not from here, because I should have known this).  This day was established on May 1, 1972. Marvin was given a key to the city, a motorcade procession and to top it off, a kiss from Miss Black DC.  Apparently “Marvin Gaye Day” nearly didn’t happen because according to Marvin’s biographer, Marvin had a love hate relationship with Washington, DC plus the tumultuous and difficult relationship with his father.

This week (Thu/Fri), there’s a 2 day sold out 40th anniversary concert taking place at The Kennedy Center; so to commemorate Marvin Gaye Day here are a few of his famous tracks:
