In honor of Marvin Gaye’s birthday today, I’ve compiled his best work from the early days, his duets, to Sexual Healing. So, let’ s get it on and take a look at his finest performances.

The first video is a performance not many people have seen: Marvin singing The Star Spangled Banner at the 1983 NBA All Star Game.

Here’s his biggest hit I Heard It Through the Grapevine, which held the top spot for seven weeks in 1968-69.

During his early days at Motown, Marvin Gaye teamed up with Tammi Terrell for three albums of duets. Here are some of their best tunes:

Ain’t No Mountain High Enough
Your Precious Love
Ain’t Nothing Like The Real Thing

Below, the very best of Marvin. Enjoy!

Let’s Get it On

What’s Going On

Hitch Hike

Got To Give It Up

Sexual Healing

Finally, Diana Ross’ tribute to Marvin: Missing You

    This is a lot more than I expected when I found a link on SU telling that the info is quite decent. Thanks.
