Love, love Marvin. His songs are timeless. This song refers to Heroin Addiction but you can replace it with any drug and still get the same meaning. War is hell and yet we as citizens of this earth cannot get enough of it.
ok
His music is just so soothing, just an awesome voice.
Brother.... Poet .....Legend. . . . M e .
What's goin on.......... . . . . ?

This song makes me cry. 2012 Marvin would still be asking the same questions. War and poverty still plague our society. Hatred based on the color of one's skin still exists. Folks writing off 47% of the population because that% ...disabled ,disenfranch i s e d or a 99%Sing Marvin Sing

Timeless piece from a real visionary. What a tragedy that we lost him so early.
his music is so timely, what he said then still speaks to us today. he was gone too soon.
A Classic, Love it
Best album of all time.

Each and every song on this album is outstanding! ! ! O n e of the greatest albums of all times.
Loved this song growing up, it's just as beautiful, but as equally sad that I am now a mother and this song is still so relevent to the stuggles of the here and now
Love this song!! I know many people can relate to this song TODAY!
Great Album..
I agree with all. I have played this album 3-4 times each year over the past 25 years. My kids are still amazed that this came out in early 70's.

One of the great defining albums and songs of my teen years
Marvin Gaye's music definitely transcended time and will live on through the ages. As a former disc jockey in Albany, Georgia, I had te opportunity to play much of Marvin Gaye's music and I enjoyed every minute of it.l His music addessed several current events of the times and presented a rhythmic undr s t a
This is one of my favorite songs by Marvin. Marvin was ahead of time with this one. He was singing about what's going on right now. God truly blessed us with Marvin's music.
I totally agree with you sford. Mr. Marvin had a serious vision and it came to pass. What a visionary and genius he was. Relevant to the state of affairs right now....war is still hell, can't find work - can't find job....My prayers to President Obama.
this was only one of marvin gayes greatest hits, it came when life was changing the vietnam war, social issues, love etc. i will always consider marvin gaye to be a man far before his time a man with a vision. i will listen to his music forever.

This entire album was pure genius. Love it still! "What's Going On" is definitely a question for today???
Miss you Marvin.
