If you want to find out more about Gaye’s life, you need to go deep into his songs. In the 1960s, he succeeded to record a lot of hits, playing for Motown, as a solo artist with amazing productions such as ‘How Sweet It Is (To Be Loved by You),’ or ‘I Heard it Through the Grapevine’ or through duets that he used to sing together with other artists ‘Ain't No Mountain High Enough’. He expressed his feelings after a decade of loneliness and depression in the simplicity of a song such as ‘What’s Going On?’ (1971). That album shows a new stage in his career, going beyond the playful way of addressing life in previous albums. He plays about poverty, the shock of the Vietnam War and the ecological problems. The album ‘Let’s Get It On’ was considered the most explicit sexual album of the time, while the double LP ‘Here My Heart’ documents the dissolution of his marriage. His ex-wife was not happy at all with this album and accused the privacy invasion. The last song that entered the charts was ‘Sexual Healing’ (1983) that has, beyond the obvious erotic message, an important message of the newly musical qualities of his voice. He died unexpectedly in 1984, leaving behind a treasure of music and songwriting.
