Strong lyrics love it!
What's Goin' On is one of the top ten American albums ever recorded: smooth music, socially conscious lyrics and as timely as ever. It's like a musical gospel.
Marvin Gay was a thinker he understood poverty, he was for the people. He came from the ghetto and thats why he can write about it.
I agree written before I was born but wish people would take the time to listen to the message

A timeless song with a message as appropriate for today as when it was written 40+ years ago. RIP MG.
