What's Going On by Marvin Gaye

“With all the ugliness going on these days I have been thinking quite a bit about this song and what it meant to me when I was just a kid. It is still as relevant today as it was back in the days of the Vietnam War. Scary days with ISIS and Syria, genocide in the Sudan, Ebola Crisis, and widespread intolerance right here in the U.S. This song always makes me feel like just maybe there is a better future out there for us if we figure out how to treat each other.”

For Sandra, Samuel, Ezell, Michael, Tamir, Mya, Eric, India, Ranisha, and all the lives lost. I don't know what's going on either, Marvin.

Hi all, we're launching a new section on the site today entitled simply 'The Albums', and to kick things off we're taking a look at Marvin Gaye's classic 'What's Going On'. We'd love to hear your thoughts on this, the new section, the whole site, or any damn thing you please. :-) http://musicvideosdeconstructed.com/2015/08/23/the-albums-whats-going-on-by-marvin-gaye/   10
