Marvin Gaye - I've Got My Music

It's been a while since the last time I watched Marvin Gaye: Transit Ostend but today I was pleased to notice that its' available through Google Video. Transit Ostend a.k.a. Remember Marvin (by Richard Oliver) is a film about the 18 months Gaye lived in Ostend, Belgium trying to get his body and mind clear and writing his comeback album Midnight Love.

It's not the greatest documentary when it comes to portraying the delicate and difficult time Gaye was going through. Regardless of some shortcomings the documentary is unique and contains priceless footage of Marvin jamming/rehearsing and a painfully emotional scene of him singing the Lord's Prayer (just after the 35 minute mark).

I've Got My Music (original vocal version of Turn On Some Music) from the Midnight Love sessions seems like a perfect song to describe his situation at the time and his battle between good faith and bad habits. At the same time it shows why Marvin is the G.O.A.T.
