Let's Get It On" is a song and hit single by soul musician Marvin Gaye, released June 15, 1973, on Motown-subsidiary label Tamla Records. The song was recorded on March 22, 1973, at Hitsville West in Los Angeles, California. The song features romantic and sexual lyricism and funk instrumentation by The Funk Brothers. The title track of Gaye's album Let's Get It On (1973), it was written by Marvin Gaye and producer Ed Townsend

Motown's 1980 double-LP, What's Going On/Let's Get It On combined Marvin Gaye's two best-known albums in one set. Although the moods of the two albums aren't necessarily compatible - the first is a reflective social protest piece, the second, well, the title is self-explanatory - it was an excellent bargain to have the two classic albums together.

After brilliantly surveying the social, political, and spiritual landscape with What's Going On, Marvin Gaye turned to more intimate matters with Let's Get It On, a record unparalleled in its sheer sensuality and carnal energy.

What’s Going On Lyrics. 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 loving here today - Ya. 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 loving here today.

What's Going On. Critic Score. As for the album what do you want me to say? Literally everyone on Earth loves this thing and so do I. It's almost perfect. Let's Get It On. Here, My Dear. You're The Man. I Want You. Midnight Love.

What’s Going On revived Gaye’s flagging career. Trouble Man, a mostly instrumental soundtrack album, followed in late 1972. Gaye’s next release, Let’s Get It On, was an immediate success that stayed on the pop charts for two years. The title track became a single, and the album also includes the hit Come Get To This. Listen to the classic title track. Gaye’s 1973 duet album with Diana Ross, Diana & Marvin, was also a huge success, selling more than a million copies worldwide

The What's Going On album takes on many issues, including the environment ("Mercy Mercy Me") and poverty ("Inner City Blues"). It was the first album Gaye released that sold a lot of copies. Until then, like most Motown artists, he had lots of hit singles but album sales were secondary. According to the book Mercy, Mercy Me: The Art, Loves & Demons of Marvin Gaye, Motown head Berry Gordy initially refused to release this song, calling it the "worst record I ever heard in my life. Derek from London, United KingdomBassist James Jamerson was called in last minute to perform for the recording as the session bassits couldn't get it down. Jamerson, a stroppy Motown genious got it down in minutes and played it with his back on the floor due to his physical and possibly mental status.
