It was and still is one of my all-time favorites by Marvin Gaye, Motown and the 60's! It is still very listenable and a true classic.

What I really like about the song is that smooth jazz groove the Funk Bros. are playing behind Marvin's silky sounding vocals. You can really hear the Funks' jazz roots coming out on that one.
Van Dyke and Jamerson are at their very best.
