Happy Birthday Marvin.

If he were still alive, Marvin Gaye would be 70 years-old today (and yesterday marked the anniversary of his 1984 death). What are your favorite Marvin Gaye albums and songs? Comment, please.

Mine are 1976's I Want You and 1978's Here, My Dear.

Two choice cuts from each record, after the jump.

you know I'm a sucker for old school Motown and kind of a cornball as well, so I have to go with "Stubborn Kind of Fellow." I believe that's the man's first single, right? Or at least first hit.

Yep, his first charted hit at Motown.
