Get Up, Get Up, Get Up, Get Up

One of the smoothest, most soulful voices of a generation makes an appearance in the Excellent 80's today... most of this man's hits came in the 60's and 70's, but before his untimely death at the hands of his father in 1984, Marvin Gaye hit it big once again with arguably his most famous of songs... as we close in on another Valentine's Day, fittingly from 1982, it's time for a little "Sexual Healing"...
