Marvin Gaye - What's Going On (Motown Master Series)



What's Going On es una obra conceptual que se atrevió a decir cosas no dichas hasta el momento. Se refiere a un hombre que regresa de la guerra y sólo observa padecimiento, pobreza, iniquidad, abuso, rencor. La génesis del álbum es lo afectado que se sintió el autor, Marvin Gaye, por las cartas que le enviaba su hermano desde Vietnam y por la situación social de su país. Los temas, en su mayoría, están unidos. Sincero, honesto, cantado de forma sublime, con mucho sentimiento, es una radiografía de tiempos turbulentos (fines de los sesenta) que tiene plena vigencia. También las cuerdas, coros, percusión, el bajo de James Jamerson, la introductoria línea de saxo alto de Eli Fountain en el tema que da nombre al álbum, todo es maravilloso. Una de las páginas musicales esenciales del siglo veinte.*****

What’s Going On
Marvin Gaye

Mother, mother
There's too many of you crying
Brother, brother, brother
There's far too many of you dying
You know we've got to find a way
To bring some lovin' here today, eheh
Father, father
We don't need to escalate
You see, war is not the answer
For only love can conquer hate
You know we've got to find a way
To bring some lovin' here today, oh oh oh
Picket lines and picket signs
Don't punish me with brutality
Talk to me, so you can see
Oh, what's going on
What's going on
Yeah, what's going on
Ah, what's going on
In the mean time
Right on, baby
Right on brother
Right on babe
Mother, mother, everybody thinks we're wrong
Oh, but who are they to judge us
Simply 'cause our hair is long
Oh, you…
