Inner City Blues (Make Me Wanna Holler) - Marvin Gaye (1971)

"In 1969 or 1970, I began to re-evaluate my whole concept of what I wanted my music to say…I was very much affected by letters my brother was sending me from Vietnam, as well as the social situation here at home. I realized that I had to put my own fantasies behind me if I wanted to write songs that would reach the souls of people. I wanted them to take a look at what was happening in the world."
- Marvin Gaye

I cannot believe that Motown head Berry Gordy didn’t want to release this album.

I mean, this song alone is a gem. The piano riff, the lyrics, and that coda - recalling the main theme from “What’s Going On”. Masterful……and we almost missed out on it because it wasn’t the “Motown sound”.

Do NOT shame people for choosing not to go to school.

Do NOT insult people for dropping out.

Do NOT teach your children that dropping out means you are a failure. 

You never know what’s going on in that person’s life.

Just DON’T DO IT.
