Producer – "Smokey"


"Ain't That Peculiar" is a 1965 song recorded by American soul musician Marvin Gaye for the Tamla (Motown) label. The single was produced by Smokey Robinson, and written by Robinson, and fellow Miracles members Ronald White, Pete Moore, and Marv Tarplin. "Ain't That Peculiar" features Gaye, with The Andantes on backing vocals, singing about the torment of a painful relationship.

The single was Gaye's second U.S. million seller successfully duplicating its predecessor "I'll Be Doggone", from earlier in 1965 by topping Billboard's Hot R&B Singles chart in the fall of 1965, peaking at #8 on the US Pop Singles chart. It became one of Gaye's signature 1960s recordings, and was his best-known solo hit before 1968's "I Heard It Through the Grapevine".

One More Heartache...Love This Motown Groove. Great Song. Not Many Know It. I Always Loved It

Marvin Gaye - One More Heartache

My favorite Marvin Gaye record. Great lyrics from Smokey, a superb vocal effort from Marvin, and the Motown house musicians at their tightest. Brilliant. Should have been a bigger hit than it was, but I'm guessing some of the public found it too similar to an earlier Robinson-Gaye effort, "Ain't That Peculiar," though I find this a far better record.
