“Marvin Gaye’s isolated vocal track on ‘I Heard it Through the Grapevine’ will give you chills.”

Marvin Gaye singing “Heard it Thru the Grapevine” but w/out any of the music behind him. Went viral a year ago. Amazing:

Marvin Gaye – I Heard It Through The Grapevine (A capella)

Space between things allows more appreciation of said things. Including in relationships. We dig it.

    Marvin Gaye was great! Heard him live in San Diego many decades ago. Chills and thrills indeed!

    Marvin Gaye's vocal is also revealed in this fantastic re-working by Grant Lazlo. Bang up to date and as awesome as the original:
