Birthday of the Week: Marvin Gaye
This week’s Birthday of the Week is Marvin Gaye, who would have turned 80 on Tuesday (April 2). Gaye is, of course, known for his prolific string of hits from the early 1960s to the early 1980s, ending with his death the day before his 45th birthday in 1984. To commemorate Gaye’s 80th birthday, let us know what your favorite Marvin Gaye song is. There are a lot of great choices, though for me “Mercy Mercy Me (The Ecology)” would end up edging out a host of others.
