mglive#4 – Marvin Gaye – “Got To Give It Up (Pt. 1)” – (1977)

Marvin Gaye was an incredible artist and one we lost far too soon. Because if you can pen a song like this, you probably have a lot more to give. But he was killed less than 10 years after this live album’s release. There are elements of disco, funk, and soul here and it topped the Hot 100 in the summer of ’77. More recently, this song is known as the one Robin Thicke sampled without permission in the still-catchy “Blurred Lines.”
