On May 21, Marvin Gaye’s album What’s Going On turns 45. Gaye was never able to celebrate this milestone, as he was killed by his father a day before his 45th birthday. We’ll celebrate its 50th anniversary, analysing its seemingly timeless portraits of urban struggle and socio-economic desperation. We’ll champion its 60th birthday, with its message about the destruction of our environment still ringing true

What's Going On is not only Marvin Gaye's masterpiece, it's the most important and passionate record to come out of soul music, delivered by one of its finest voices, a man finally free to speak his mind and so move from R&B sex symbol to true recording artist.
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.
The self-produced What’s Going On was a revelation, showcasing an artist with an insightful and prescient conscience about the state of the world who simultaneously raised his unique soulfulness to a new plateau. In a revealing interview with Disc & Music Echo as the new project was emerging, Gaye confirmed that he had been through a period of reappraisal of his place in music. It wasn’t a case of being big-headed or temperamental that kept me from doing interviews during the last three years, he said . I did it not only to help humanity but to help me as well, and I think it has. It’s given me a certain amount of peace.
