Today is the late Marvin Gaye‘s birthday. Coincidentally he died a day before his birthday, in 1984.
He’s had so many hits that of course his songs were sample by the following artists:
Kanye West- “Spaceships”, College Dropout album sampled from “Distant Lover”
Robin Thicke, T.I. & Pharrell- “Blurred Lines”, sampled from “Got To Give It Up”
The Jackson- “Shake Your Body”, Sampled from “Got To Give It Up”
Ja Rule & Ashanti- “Mesmerized”, Sampled from “Stop Look, Listen”
Smilez & Superstar- “Tell Me”, Sampled from “Stop, Look, Listen”
Method Man & Mary J Blige- “All I Need”, sampled from “All I Need To Get By”
Chris Brown- “Back To Sleep”, sampled from “Sexual Healing”
Thats just to name a few artists who sampled the GOAT music. He was Inducted in the Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame in 1987 and Received a star on the Hollywood Hall of Fame in 1990.
I know I wasn’t even thought of when his music was released but I have an old soul and appreciate older music!
Happy Birthday to Marvin Gaye!
