How does one follow the immaculate "What's Going On"? You don't. It cannot be done. So it bugs me to no end when it is mistakenly called "the sexual version of "What's Going On".Straight up, I'm not a tremendously huge fan of the hetero-title track. Yes, you read correctly. I consider it a very hetero type of record. That's not a good or bad thing. It just is. I am also not a great lover of 50s era sounding music. I certainly applaud its success. However, I have no problem starting out with the lyrically suicidal "Please Stay (Don't Go Away)". "Please Stay (Don't Go Away)" nearly overwhelms in Marvin's obsession. It swoons and builds that I'm almost exhausted and we're only two cuts in. (Sidebar: I was in the audience at the Oakland Coliseum as "You're the Man" and the OST, "Trouble Man" kept me barely fulfilled until the "Let's Get it On" project finally arrived).Back to the album, the double vocal tracking sounded so so sweet. If you didn't know of skills as a drummer, listen to the insistent drumming here...that's all need be said.Next up, Diana once shared visiting a "hard to find" Marvin in serious emotional rehabilitation in Ostend. She recalled searching for him as she was on another World Tour. He played a new Goincomposition containing a closing lyric, "....oh baby without you I could commit suicide". "If I Should Tonight" could drown a lesser talented artist in pathos. Marvin merges major key violins that finds me often in tears.One might think "Keep Get it On" meant he would soon be barren with musical ideas......o'contraire. He did it to its fullest on "What's Happening Brother", I gladly stood in line for another medley circle.Forget what I said about 50s music, in less than 4 minutes, "Come Get to This" should had been a #1 single. This new Motown strength as a big album seller, saw fans buying 4-5xs as many albums.Once again, if the title track constitutes hetero love making, one of the greatest ballads is and will always be "Distant Lover". Once again, this should have been a ubiquitous #1!I lost my virginity on"You Sure Love to Ball". Need I say more."Jan" was soooo in your face on "Marvin Gaye Live". Like the line "It's Sad to think We're Not Going to Make It".....the dissolution of a relationship is so real on "Just to Keep You Satisfied", it was part of the long goodbye that didn't end on "Til Tomorrow" a decade later.Part II of a masterpiece.
A total stylistic inverse from What's Going On, Let's Get It On not only had a major influence on quiet storm slow jams, but it is one of the most erotic and emotionally intimate records (not by Frank Sinatra) ever released. Listening to songs like Please Stay (Once You Go Away), If I Should Die Tonight, Distant Lover, You Sure Love to Ball, and Just to Keep You Satisfied, you can't help but melt right into them, they sound as if they must be listened to in bed, with your eyes closed, as if engaged in the sexual intimacy these songs were made for. Also, the hit, iconic title track sounds corny compared to the rest of this soul baring album.
No words can describe the emotion's I feel every time I listen to this masterpiece, the thing's Gaye says is just so powerful, I actually prefer Let's Get It On, to What's Going On, and that's a Classic album in it's own right!.
Lets get it on was one of the bestess albums ever of my time
