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:

.

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!
