Saturday Night At The Liberal Curmudgeon: Marvin Gaye Live

Cited as sixth in Rolling Stone's 100 greatest singers list and praised by the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame for his “huge contribution to soul music in general and the Motown sound in particular," Marvin Gaye expressed his social conscience in his songs. Above he performed “Mercy, Mercy Me,” about the environment, and “What’s Going On,” about violence and the search for peace, at the Montreux Jazz Festival, Switzerland, 1980. (Yes, it's weird posting my "Saturday Night" music series on Monday night; the delay is due to YouTube giving me technical agida. Anyway, enjoy!)
