Leaving the safety and familiarity of Tamla/Motown has seen many artists take a flight to obscurity. Gaye turned it on its head and made his most successful album for over ten years. The pivotal track is "Sexual Healing," an idea given to him by his biographer David Ritz and co-written with Odell Brown. This track alone is worth the price of the album (even though it was a single). It oozes greatness with every second and was the last great Marvin Gaye song.  but let's not forget perhaps his singular greatest hit and certainly one of the greatest songs ever recorded, the time-tested, all nourishing "SEXUAL HEALING!


But "Turn on some music" is great itself..And for the record, he played drums, piano, organ, bells, synths and bongos. A premier voice lost to the world.


How could I not include the late Marvin Gaye's "Turn On Some Music"? This was made popular by Erick Sermon for his single for the "What's the worst that can happen?" soundtrack. This is when Marvin was making a comeback, in the 1980s. 

 

( Amazon customer) " The recording is well written, arranged and produced
"MIDNIGHT LADY", "ROCKING AFTER MIDNIGHT", "TURN ON SOME MUSIC" and "THIRD WORLD GIRL" are all stunningly lively soothing songs,may I also mention "'TIL TOMORROW" which is the only true ballad here.. are all very significant in all aspects of greatness "
