    I Love Marvin Gaye..

    My dad loved him so I grew up with him.  I think he has a sexy voice and he speaks of truth.  Sexual Healing reminds me of a guy from my past and so it makes me very happy.. I always wanted a booty call when I heard it on the radio.  He and I aren't friends anymore...

    Timeless

    The term timeless is used way too often, but Marvin Gaye's voice and style will always be something that ignites interest, now and a hundred years from now.   I can't help but be brought to a different level when my ears hear his voice.

    I Love His Music

    I love got to give it up because I can really relate to the lyrics. my other favorite is how sweet it is (to be loved by you) because my uncle sung it at my grandma and grandpa's 50th anniversary party and it always reminds me of them.

    Marvin Is The Man!

    I love Marvin's voice so much, I think he was amazing when it came to emotion and expression. What's going on is a phenomenal album, and I love the songs from I Want You. That album, produced by Leon Ware, is probably my favorite of all that I've heard by him. Come Live with me...

    The Talented Mr. Marvin Gaye

    His voice is smooth like silk. He sang with soul as beautiful words poured out. Sexual Healing is one of my favorites. Nice sexy song. I'm sure Mr. Gaye is responsible for the conception of a lot of kids.

    Greatest of All Time

    He is arguably one of the greatest musical artists of all times.  His lyrics and performances were always full of emotion and simply wonderful.  If you are a Marvin fan, try to find a recording of him singing the National Anthem for an NBA All-Star Game.  He sang...
