One of the great interpreters of song. His "I Heard It Through the Grapevine" may be my favorite rendition of any piece of popular music.

A wonderful soulful guy who's life was too short. The albums he made for Motown in the 70's are almost equal to those of Stevie Wonder. If you don't know his back catalogue listen to What's Going On, Let's Get it On, Here My Dear and I Want You. He also made some great solo singles in the 60's and with Tammi Terrell made some brilliant duets.

Marvin Gaye evolved like nobody else. From Motown popstar, to socially aware, to sexy r&b star, to coke-addled mess, to tragically short comeback. He redefined black music and showed that an artist could control his career. Greatest black artist ever.
