Marvin Gaye & Tammi Terrel were a amazing duo & this is one of my favorite songs by them. Old school love songs like this one is absolutely timeless. This song was covered by Luther Vandross and Cheryl Lynn in the 80’s as well. I think it is also so sweet & beautiful that somewhere out there in the world, there are couples who may have been married for 50 years or more, & this could be one of their favorite love songs. I always smile to myself whenever I see senior couples walking, holding hands, & being so into each other. This song was meant for couples like that…people who are best friends, have a bond/connection that goes far beyond the physical, and brings long term happiness in each other’s lives.
