Oliver Clothesoff from Seattle, WaNothing personal, but I have yet to hear a Kate Bush cover of ANYTHING that I find acceptable.
Seventhmist from 7th HeavenIf he wasn't addicted to drugs, I bet he was addicted to sex.
Siahara Shyne Carter from United StatesAre you kidding me? I like it :D
I also first watched in MTV
Piper Bailey from San Francisco, GaI absolutely love this site and finding all these artists that I used to listen to when I was younger it really brings me back. Marvin Gaye was one of my idols and the news of his death killed a part of me as corny as that sounds, but his spirit lives on. I hope this new generation doesn't forget where real music came from. May he rest in peace forever. Teena Marie wrote an older song called My Dear Mr. Gaye dedicated to Marvin. If you have not yet heard this song, I strongly recommend it. She says that he will always be in every woman's heart and I'll bethe first to testify to that.
Chris from Charleston, ScInterestingly, this song uses a Roland TR-808 drum machine.
Jl from Bretagne, FranceKate Bush cover is ... er.. Ok. Let's say acceptable. It's still a good song. But Ben Harper's numerous live versions for this song are much better. Still the original keeps that special taste that makes it so sensually healing.
Maxim from Brugge, Belgiumthings whent the way gaye wanted them to... as far as i know, gaye bought the gun himself and asked his father to shoot him... his father also said "i am going to take him out befor a white man does" and there also is a minor default in the writer credits with sexual healing... David Ritz had no credits in writing the song, only in its title... gaye told ritz when he said to him "you need some sexual healing" - "that would make a fine title" and that gaye would mension his name on the album, ritz later sued him and won...

if my info is incorect, sorry and please report :)
Teresa from Mechelen, BelgiumA very beautiful song. If Marvin Gaye stayed in Belgium, maby he would still be there. It's just too bad things happened like that. He had a beautiful voice and I love most of his songs.
Edan from Melbourne, AustraliaOkay firstly. This has now been covered by Ben Harper as a tribute to Gaye. Secondly this song helped and hindered Gaye after his fall from the top it helped him get back to the top but he also managed to restart his drug addiction which annoyed his friends.
C.j. from Hof / Saale, GermanyGet hold of the 'Sexual Healing Sessions' to get an idea of how the recording of this classic song (and Gaye's last original album) evolved. C.J. Ganter, Hof / Saale (Germany)
"Thinking About You" was the ninth track from Calvin Harris' 18 Months album to enter the UK singles Top 10. No other artist has obtained so many hits from one LP - Michael Jackson was the previous record holder with seven Top 10 tunes from both his Bad and Dangerous sets.
