Marvin Gaye: "Stubborn Kind of Fellow"

Here's yet another great singer that I can't believe I've never had up before. What interests me most about Marvin Gaye's career is how reluctant he was to pursue soul music and how he hated disco music, yet was so great at both genres. This is his first big hit, a classic R&B tune that supposedly made Phil Spector so excited when he first heard it that he lost control of his car.

As you may or may not know, this is both his birthday weekend and the anniversary of his death, at the hands of his father (4/2/39-4/1/84)t
