There is arguably no soul singer more beloved than Marvin Gaye, "The Prince of Soul". It's heartbreaking to think about Marvin's troubled life, but his music transcended his life, and it will be something that inspires humankind for eons to come. And if we had to pick a single album to represent the best of Marvin Gaye, his 1971 release "What's Going On" would be at the top of the list. Voted the "Best Album of All Time" by NME, and ranking #6 on Rolling Stone's "Top 500 Greatest Albums of All Time", "What's Going On" has been one of the most influential and beloved albums to ever be created in America. For this playlist we've selected a single cover song for each track that appears on "What's Going On", and have listed them in the same order as the original. You can revisit the album, and get a different perspective all at the same time.
