Marvin Gaye releases "Let's Get It On" single
On June 15, 1973 Marvin Gaye released the single "Let's Get It On", a song that makes a strong case for sexual liberation and defined Gaye as one of he great sex symbols of the 70's.
I can't see anything wrong with sex between consenting anybodies. I think we make far too much of it. After all, one's genitals are just one important part of the magnificent human body. I have no argument with the essential part they play in the reproduction of the species; however, the reproduction process has been assured by the pleasure both parties receive when they engage in it
Marvin Gaye, Let's Get It On liner notes.
"Let's Get It On" would hold the #1 position in the Billboard Hot 100 list for two weeks in September.
