Marvin Gaye, Environmentalist

Today would have been the legendary R&B artist Marvin Gaye’s 70th birthday.  I’ve always been a big fan–albums don’t get much better than”What’s Going On.”  And from that album we get this gem of call to arms for the environment,  Mercy, Mercy Me (The Ecology).   

It is stunning to consider that this song was written back in 1971.
