Marvin Gaye released this in 1971, and it's just as if he could see the future of today. A timeless song.

MARVIN GAYE WAS A MAN WHO SAW THE FUTURE, AND WAS A HUMAN BEING, FOR ALL MANKIND , HE WAS DEFINITELY A MAN BEFORE HIS TIME, HE SPOKE TRUTH ABOUT WHAT'S GOING ON 40 YEARS AGO, FOR TODAY. MAY GOD GRANT HIS SOUL PEACE AND FORGIVENESS. HE STILL LIVES ON, THROUGH HIS MUSIC AND HIS CHILDREN, MAY GOD HAVE MERCY ON HIS SOUL.

I just LOVE this song!! It speaks about the different aspects that are going on in the world and how things are changing...p o s s i b l y for the worst. Just think, Marvin Gaye made this song Mercy Mercy Me (The Ecology) back in the 70s, and this song is still relateable today in 2014 and will probably be the same in 2015. But hopefully things improve. Any who, the music is beautiful and the music ends with a tragic like sound. I LOVE IT!! Marvin Gaye was such an AMAZING singer! Smooth&talen t e d !

We lost a true and amazing artist when we lost Marvin. Other than Barry White, he was the epitome of chill black sex music. Awwwww. I miss the 70s.
