Marvin Gaye - Whats goin on/Whats happended brother



What´s going on

Mother, mother
There's too many of you crying
Brother, brother, brother
There's far too many of you dying
You know we've got to find a way
To bring some lovin' here today - Ya

Father, father
We don't need to escalate
You see, war is not the answer
For only love can conquer hate
You know we've got to find a way
To bring some lovin' here today

Picket lines and picket signs
Don't punish me with brutality
Talk to me, so you can see
Oh, what's going on
What's going on
Ya, what's going on
Ah, what's going on

In the mean time
Right on, baby
Right on
Right on

Father, father, everybody thinks we're wrong
Oh, but who are they to judge us
Simply because our hair is long
Oh, you know we've got to find a way
To bring some understanding here today
Oh

Picket lines and picket signs
Don't punish me with brutality
Talk to me
So you can see
What's going on
Ya, what's going on
Tell me what's going on
I'll tell you what's going on - Uh
Right on baby
Right on baby

What´s happening brother

Hey baby, what'cha know good
I'm just gettin' back, but you knew I would
War is hell, when will it end,
When will people start gettin' together again
Are things really gettin' better, like the newspaper said
What else is new my friend, besides what I read
Can't find no work, can't find no job my friend
Money is tighter than it's ever been
Say man, I just don't understand
What's going on across this land
Ah what's happening brother,
Oh ya, what's happening my man
Are they still gettin' down where we used to go and dance
Will our ball club win the pennant,
do you think they have a chance
And tell me friend, how in the world have you been.
Tell me what's out and I want to know what's in.
What's the deal man, what's happening
What's happening brother
Ah what's happening brother
What's happening my man
Ah what's happening brother
What's been shaken up and down the line
I want to know cause I'm slightly behind the time.

"En un mundo desprovisto de melancolía, los ruiseñores soltarían eructos" (E. M. Cioran en "Silogismos de la amargura"). Y la Historia del Soul, sin "What's Goin' On", quizá sería un mero subcapítulo más de la Historia del Pop, no sé, sólo quizá... Qué gran canción, hay que ser un témpano de hielo para no experimentar al menos una sensación agridulce al escucharla.

Un abrazo a tod@s.

P,D.: hombre, Funkforward, al final todos los "enfem-mos" soul-funk adictos acabamos posteando en lugares comunes! Viva el The Wootie-T-Woo, los People's Choice y el vino de Cariñena! :-)

Obdilia un placer tenerte por aquí.
Javi Brasil lo has definido estupendamente.
Mardi seguiremos actualizando, gracias por tu apoyo.
Maria ¡ que sorpresa! la alegría es mutua.
Funkforward y Soul-ero 61 coincido plenamente con vosotros "What´s goin on" es de los discos que personalmente más me han marcado.
Gracias a todos por los comentarios
