Born in DC in 1939. His first hits came in 1962, including Stubborn Kind of Fellow and Hitch Hike. This song is from 1970 and it still rings true today.

@jespah,
Marvin Gaye's music will live forever.
His music is timeless.

Self Destruction - The Stop the Violence Movement

The Stop the Violence Movement was formed by rapper KRS-One.

During a Boogie Down Productions and Public Enemy concert, a young fan was killed in a fight; galvanized
into action, KRS-One founded the Stop the Violence Movement. Comprised of some of the biggest stars in
contemporary East Coast hip-hop, the movement released a single ('Self Destruction') in 1989 with all
proceeds going to the National Urban League.

@Real Music,
I remember that. Thank you for posting that. I was going to post that and you beat me to it.

They also made a sequel to it:



Nice to know I'm not the only person here who likes Motown music. I miss Motown music.

@JGoldman10,
I actually saw Run DMC in concert in the early 1980s. I think it was around 1983 or 1984.

I grew up on Motown music.
The Jackson 5, The Miracles, The Temptations, The Supremes, The Commodores, Stevie Wonder,
Marvin Gaye, and so many other Motown acts.

@Real Music,
So did I. I liked them too. I think you forgot the 4 Tops and Smokey Robinson and Otis Redding.
