What's Going On?
What's Going On? by Marvin Gaye
Get What's Going On? now from
On? is a poignant song from Marvin Gaye about the tragedy of the assassinations of John F. Kennedy, his brother
Robert and Martin Luther King. He describes the emotions we all felt when the news came out that each of the
slayings had occurred and the even more incredible fact that three great men were assassinated within a few years
of each other, each by a different misguided soul. The song captures our disbelief of the events as they
happened, singly and collectively. A departure for Marvin Gaye who usually sings to us about love and
lust. He did a great job singing to us about loss as well.
