50th Anniversary of What's Going On!


Recommended Posts

A song that is still relevant to this day!

 

A song that is a part of the legacy of Marvin Gaye!

Touching on war, police brutality, rioting, Marvin Gaye dropped the love songs and actually focused on the reality of what's going on in this world. Still today. The lead single off the album, it set the scale for concept albums to be made.

 

His second most successful single to date on Motown, it sold over two million copies.

 

Five weeks at #1 on the Hot Soul Singles Charts, crossing over to #2 on the Hot 100.

 

Covered by many, it ranks #4 on the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time by Rolling Stone.

 

Happy 50th Anniversary!! :alexz:

No. What is that? 

It's Chadwick Boseman's last movie before death. It's about return to Vietnam of 4 war veterans. What's Going On is heavily featured in it.
