For me its a godlike timeless classic and part of an album that is a touchstone for it's era politically.  I already loved it and then I saw a documentary about Marvin doing a concert days after a nearby riot and despite warnings from police his gig might start a riot.  Instead his gig was credited with easing tensions.

Hard to believe Barry Gordy didn't want to release this album...  One of the all time greats, RIP Marvin!

Timeless, yes!  What a great message, and really too bad that this isn't the 'default' thought process for EVERYONE on earth.  Why should we kill each and destroy when we can love and create instead?  (unfortunately I think $$ has a lot to do with it)

This is a 10 rated track for me

Jamerson's bass on this track is iconic. The story is that he came in from a night of carousing, hung over, read through the charts once, and played the most amazing bass track ever. Years later after Motown moved to LA, a local wise guy—having heard the story about how it was invented—bet Jamerson a good deal of money that he couldn't recreate it on the spot. Jamerson collected.

 
Yes, that is really an outstanding bass track, very melodic and tasty without "over-doing it": perfect.

The Creator ought to put this and Mercy Me on a loud, permanent loop in the Oval Office and the 5th Ave. Throne Room of what's his nuts Der Trumper. 

Sorry, that's political. It's oozing out of my pores.

I grew up in burbs of Detroit, fond fond memories of CKLW,  and growing up in the Motown sound. A very good documentary "Standing in the Shadows of Motown" amazing video! Worth seeing. {#Notworthy}

Have to agree. Didn't hear much beyond top 40 on WJR back then.

This is one of those songs I remember hearing blare from a car speaker hanging from the visor on the school bus with an AM radio sitting precariously on the dashboard.

This is sweet music to my soul.
