Marvin Gaye – “Sexual Healing” – (1982)

Marvin Gaye released more awesome songs during the 1960s than just about anyone I can think of (the Supremes, maybe?). In 1982 he released Midnight Love – his first non-Motown album. And it contained “Sexual Healing” which was a top 5 hit in the U.S. and a #1 elsewhere. It was his first hit in 5 years and remains one of his most popular songs. It would also be his final hit as he was murdered by his own father in 1984, a day before his 45th birthday. Marvin Gaye had one of the smoothest voices in recording history and it’s kind of fitting that his final hit and legacy stem from one of the smoothest songs in recording history.
