There are singers, there are people who can sing. But MG always, always, always, S-A-A-N-N-G- G - G - ! !
I am surprised I had not posted earlier to this song. This is one of my all time favorites. The lyrics speak to the longing of the heart for someone you are deeply in love with...I don't know if another artist can do justice to this song. Marvin made it his and for me know one can match the longing, pleading, the sweetness and the sexy way he rounds it all out when he sings this song.
AS EVIDENT FROM THE HUNDREDS OF WOMEN SCREAMING FROM THE AUDIENCE...M A R V I N GAYE WAS A TRUE LADIES MAN!
One of the "best" LoveMakers in the world ~ RIP MG
Dayhem! this one is over the top WOW! after hearing this espression of a need/want from a man what could you do or say-Awesome! We still love you MG!
I'm listening to Marvin Gaye 02:05 in the morning, a-a-ah yeah, got me thinking about my past and it was good to me. Now I got to wake up.
