YMMV: Marvin Gaye
  • Covered Up: "I Heard It Through the Grapevine." His version, the most famous, was the second recorded and the third released.
  • Dude, Not Funny!: Killed on April Fools' Day.
  • "Funny Aneurysm" Moment: From "What's Going On": "Father, father, we don't need to escalate / You see, war is not the answer, for only love can conquer hate". Gaye's father killed him after an argument.
  • Seinfeld Is Unfunny: Songs like "I Heard It Through the Grapevine," "Let's Get It On" and "Sexual Healing" (among others) have all become such standard verbal and/or musical references, it's easy to forget they're also really good songs.
  • Vindicated by History: Here, My Dear was not initially successful but has since come to be regarded as one of Gaye's best albums.
