This track gets a 10 rating from me, primarily because it's got a GREAT groove and the lyrics helped me turn from a wallflower into someone who would actually dance a bit.  Considering I never liked dancing, that's one hell of an impact a song can have.  PEACE, GROOVE and Long Live RP!!

I'm cogitating right now that perhaps the song "Hotel California" was written as an Ode to Romeotuma's room at the Hotel Steglitz in Berlin?
OK, back to cogitation.

Thanks for clarifying; something seemed amiss in my sonic memory of being at a dance party at 15 vs 9 and hearing this tune.

No matter where I am or who I'm with, just gotta take a dance break when Marvin Gaye is playing.... turns me into an ecstatic, happy, dancing child instantaneously.  What an incredible legacy!

No. Seriously, no. I like Beck, but, eh, no. If what you really meant was that it reminds you of Beck somehow, then, OK, but "sounds just like"? And yes, I see you winking, still, categorically: no. Nor does Beck "sound just like" Marvin. I, you, uh...  No.

Preserve your innocence at all costs!

(But if you made it through last summer when the song was played constantly on junk radio, passing cars, and in all kinds of public places, you are probably safe now...)

Hah my music player still shows "Close to me" by the Cure. My first thought was, "wow when did they go this direction?" It just about reset my whole world view picturing Robert Smith singing like Marvin Gaye.

Micheal? Who'd he heal? I drive thru Gary, IN all the time and drive by the Jackson "Mansion" regularly. Pretty sad place, considering.
