Marvin Gaye is one of the most important artists to ever come out of America. What's Going On should be transcribed into a statue next to the Vietnam War Memorial. Every kid should learn each song in school :)
That album is such an important lesson in American History. It was the perfect reflection of the troubled times America was going through during the Vietnam War.
Kids today, I have very little idea of why that war was a terrible stain in our history - and it's easily seen by the fact of how EASILY we slipped into the Iraq and Afghanistan wars.
Unfortunately what people remember the most about Marvin Gaye were his sexually charged songs like Let's Get it On and Sexual Healing. Those songs are great and all, but just not as important as his earlier works in my somewhat humble opinion.
