This is not only an a 11 for me, but I want to give a big THANK YOU to Mr. Gaye (may he rest in peace) for giving us this song.  Kind of like how Paul Rogers/Bad Company did with "Feel Like Making Love"; just how many people got laid as a result of these songs?!?  Gotta give it up to them for the aural aphrodisiac.  Long Live RP and songs about making love.

I think his singing doesn't get enough credit. So much range from falsetto to a growl and a great sense of delivery.

 

Heh, I just did the same ratings bump before I saw your comment.  This is a great, timeless song.

That was Johnny Nash. I don't think Marvin did a cover? In any case you have good taste.

Sorry, buddy,  but I think you should not put all your coins on this bet...
Human insensibility, stupidity, nonsense and brutality is a real thing nowadays: Charlie Ebdo is just another brick on wall

So, there must be millions that hate this kind of beautiful music 
(sure not only based on religion issues, but just because they just do not like their lives IMHO).

Released in 1998?  I remember snickering to this as a teenager ... "let's get it on, baby" ... and snickering again when my kids were teenagers in 1998.  Wow!  Maybe I was kidnapped by aliens and subjected to time-travel experiments.

Quick check on Wikipedia says released in June (or maybe August) 1973.  Also says Mr. Gaye died in 1984.

In a truly sad admission...as much as I love Marvin, I like the cheezy Jack Black version of this song from High Fidelity even better... :p
 
Which is the perfect antidote to those who can't get Dr. Evil and Frau out of their minds. Jack Black's rendition had to be the biggest surprise of High Fidelity.
