[Download] One of the Best Soul Album in History: Marvin Gaye – Midnight Love [Best songs]

This was Marvin Gaye last album, just before he died killed by his own father. The album reached the number one on the list of albums of the year despite the troubles that Marvin was experiencing (a drug problem, debts, failure in his marriages and finally a lost of his equipment). The best song of all Marvin Gaye career is definitely Sexual Healing: I don’t know how to use the words to describe this song, pure soul, one of the best in the history of Soul Music, is very impressive the combination of instruments that creates an aura of sensuality with Gaye in the vocals with high notes that are hard to reach. This song reached the number-one on the Hot Black Singles Chart becoming the fastest-rising R&B single in five years! and even successfully crossed over to pop audiences and reaching to the number-three on the Billboard Hot 100. Later on, Billboard commented that among only two other singers – Aretha Franklin and Madonna – Gaye became the only male artist to place a song on every position of the Hot 100’s top ten listings. Eventually staying at number-one on the R&B chart for a total of ten consecutive weeks, the song would become the longest-running number-one single on that chart during the entire decade later selling over a million copies. Rockin’ After Midnight  is a song that inspired The Jackson 5, a perfect pure funk guitar in it with the highest notes from Gaye. Turn on Some Music, brilliant since the first minutes the voice of Marvin and a bass line that joined creates the perfect sexy and smooth aura. My love is Waiting,  another perfect soul track! This song is just breath taking, it was issued initially as a b-side to “Sexual Healing” in the UK but the song received a positive response from UK fans that it was also issued as a single eventually peaking at number-thirty-four.

This album is just amazing! despite of all the problems that Marvin was dealing, despite all the bad moments he give us this perfect album! almost all the tracks on it are great! full of Soul! I love this album! and the world too, because Midnight Love peaked at number-seven on the Billboard 200 and number-one on the Black Albums chart, this  becomes an eighth number-one album on that chart and his first number-one on that chart since 1977!. It eventually sold over three million US copies certifying the album as triple -platinum while selling a total of six million albums worldwide, it also became a worldwide hit peaking at number-four on the UK Albums chart. The album was ranked #37 on Rolling Stone‘s list of the 100 greatest albums of the 80’s. Marvin’s death was a big lost for the soul world. He made history with all his albums and closed a perfect career with a gold album like this.

marvin-gaye-whats-going-on

American singer-songwriter and musician with a three-octave vocal range, born April 2, 1939 in Washington, D.C., USA, died April 1, 1984 in Los Angeles, California, USA when he was shot by his father Marvin Gay, Sr. Inducted into Rock And Roll Hall of Fame in 1987 [Performer]. Starting as a member of The Moonglows in the late fifties, he ventured into a solo career after the group disbanded in 1960 signing with the Tamla subsidiary of Motown Records.

Marvin Gaye’s What’s Going on album is considered the best soul album in history. Much has been said about What’s Going On’ political bent, and it’s true that the music was partially inspired by Marvin’s brother Frankie, who had come back from a three-year tour of Vietnam, along with troublingly violent episodes like the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr. and the Kent State shootings that saw four students killed by national guardsmen. Songs like peace-espousing title track and “What’s Happening Brother“, which finds Gaye expressing a war veteran’s helplessness upon returning home, show Marvin’s dismay toward his country and government. But this album isn’t just a protest time capsule, far from it, Gaye’s disappointment isn’t just societal, it’s personal as well. During this period, the singer had lost his duet partner and dear friend, Tammi Terrell, his marriage to Gordy’s sister Anna was violently breaking down, and he was being tailed by the IRS for unpaid back taxes. His resulting depression is evident throughout; What’s Going On isn’t a fiery album filled with timely sloganeering. Part of its long-lasting appeal involves an element of true-to-life resignation. “Who’s willing to try to save a world/ That’s destined to die,” he sings on “Save the Children”, pinpointing an American melancholia– a mix of world-saving power and funereal inevitability– that endures today.  Right On has an INCREDIBLE SOUND! I felt like if i were in “Ocean’s Eleven”. A delicious sound of flute in the background, a jazzy sound from the band and lyrics that protest about social class division, is one of the best songs in the album.  Inner City Blues (Make me wanna Holler), the bongo sounds are united with xilophone and saxophone creating an atmosphere of relax and poetry, very harmonic song. The lyrics talks about a life in a city where you can’t live well because you are fulled with obligations and taxes.

His marijuana-soaked delivery, along with the album’s mutating, percussion-fueled rhythms, majestic strings, and jazzy horns, give the affair levity. Perhaps this smooth front also has to do with the fact that Gaye was “hardly an activist in the traditional sense,” while his Vietnam-battered brother was an emotional catalyst, Gaye had neglected to send him one letter during his army stint. And though he was certainly aware of the Detroit race riot that left 43 people dead in 1967, he viewed the sad display on TV from his cushy home on the outskirts of town. Not to say Gaye didn’t wholeheartedly believe in the progressive observations found on What’s Going On, but his relative distance from his subjects allows him to fly over top of them, providing a healing pulse to the disarray below, creating an album as timeless as this one.
