#454: Here, My Dear by Marvin Gaye


Here, My Dear by Marvin Gaye (1978)

Favorite Track(s): "When Did You Stop Loving Me, When Did I Stop Loving You" and "Everybody Needs Love" and "A Funky Space Reincarnation"

Thoughts: Elton and now Marvin Gaye? Today is a day I'm glad I'm listening to this list.

Here, My Dear was written during his messy divorce to his first wife. It was controversial and considered bizarre by many critics, and not considered a commercial success.

Something that cracked me up was at the beginning of the song "Time to Get it Together" when the music starts, and Marvin exclaims, "Jesus said time would heal all wounds!" Now I don't read the Bible much anymore, but I'm fairly certain Jesus never said that. But how can we know?

Anywho, this is a classic, top-notch album. I was grooving in my seat.
