Marvin Gaye – I Want You (1976)


Marvin Gaye 1976

In 1976, some sweeping strings, jazzy congas and choppy guitar riffs were mixed up to make something rather magical. ‘I Want You’ not only pulls on jazz, funk and disco, but also allows for an electric guitar solo by none other than Ray Parker, Jr.’s and, of course, Marvin Gaye’s peerless harmonies. The song was written by Leon Ware and featured as the title track off Gaye’s fourteenth studio album. Have a great week.
