Music Mondays: Marvin Gaye (Charlie Puth feat. Meghan Trainor)

Have your ever encountered a song on the radio that reminds you so much of another song that you just can’t put your finger on it? It’s exactly what I felt when I heard this new song on the radio. It took me several replays of the song (different times) before it finally hit me! But before that, here’s today’s Music Monday first—

Marvin Gaye by Charlie Puth (feat. Meghan Trainor)

So, did you guess it? It’s similar to Ben E. King’s Stand By Me. When I finally got it, all I was mumbling was “so darling darling…” and I can’t even remember “stand” at the end of it. Anyway, it was too much not to share.

Going back to the featured song, who is Marvin Gaye? Well, a Google search revealed that Marvin Gaye is—was—a singer-songwriter back in the 60s, 70s, and early 80s. His popular hits include How Sweet It Is (To Be Loved By You), I Heard It Through The Grapevine, and What’s Going On.

What’s his connection with the song? I’m not sure, except maybe the phrase in the chorus—“Let’s Marvin Gaye get it on”—alludes to his hit song Let’s Get It On. Maybe. But regardless of what it really means, it doesn’t veer away from the fact that the melody is catchy and easy to listen to.

      Haha I had the same problem the first time I heard the song. I was so bothered that I couldn’t remember Stand By Me at the time. 😝

    How old is the person righting this article that they had to Google Marvin Gaye? Regardless of age though, if you don’t even know who Marvin Gaye is then who in the hell would ever let you write anything pertaining to music.

      Hi! Apologies if you’re offended by my post and if you think I don’t have the right to write about music. But I never presented myself as an expert. My Music Mondays is to share music that I like and information that I learn about them, like this one. It’s never to late to learn something new, even if everybody else knows it. 🙂
