Throwback: Happy 83rd Birthday, Marvin Gaye!

It’s Aries season, y’all! And the month or so of the astrological sign is busy and auspicious for music history:

The legendary Marvin Gaye was born on this day in 1939. Gaye’s impact on the Motown sound was towering — he was first a session player and songwriter for early Motown releases before stepping into the spotlight as a solo artist. So let’s celebrate the man, his music and his life today, huh?

Happy birthday, Marvin! Happy birthday, wherever you are!
