Marvin Gaye - After The Dance Lyrics | MetroLyrics
Marvin Gaye made a huge contribution to soul music in general and the Motown sound in particular. He wrote, produced and played a variety of instruments. In the early days of Motown, Gaye played drums and piano on tour and in the studio for the likes of the Miracles and the Marvelettes. Gaye recorded in a variety of styles, from adult ballads to gritty up-tempo soul to topical concept albums. At every stage in his career, Gaye projected a soulful authority driven by fervid conviction and heartbroken vulnerability; he was a long-suffering soul who sought relief in music.
Marvin Gaye - After the Dance Lyrics
I meet more people who still love them today seemingly more than any other disco group. Their songs also seemed to stick around a little more than most. Songs like this are the reason why. That can equally lead to hating them.
His dad encouraged him to vocalize and play organ, and at Cardoza High, Marvin joined the band. At seventeen, he enlisted in the air force. After his discharge, Marvin began his musical career in earnest, hoping to become a jazz singer in the mold of his idol, Nat King Cole. He joined a local group, the Rainbows, and later the Marquees, who were chosen by the leader of the Moonglows, Harvey Fuqua, to become the new Moonglows in Marvin played drums, piano, and sang with them for the next four years.
