Ooh, baby let's get down tonight, whoo!

Baby I'm hot just like an oven
I need some lovin'
And baby, I can't hold it much longer
It's getting stronger and stronger

And when I get that feeling, I want sexual healing
Sexual healing, oh baby
Makes me feel so fine
Helps to relieve my mind
Sexual healing, baby, is good for me
Sexual healing is something that's good for me

Whenever blue tear drops are falling
And my emotional stability is leaving me
There is something I can do
I can get on the telephone and call you up baby, and
Honey I know you'll be there to relieve me
The love you give to me will free me
If you don't know the things you're dealing
I can tell you, darling, that it's sexual healing

Get up, get up, get up, get up, let's make love tonight
Wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up, 'cause you do it right

Baby I got sick this morning
A sea was storming inside of me
Baby I think I'm capsizing
The waves are rising and rising

And when I get that feeling
I want sexual healing
Sexual healing is good for me
Makes me feel so fine, it's such a rush
Helps to relieve the mind, and it's good for us
Sexual healing, baby, is good for me
Sexual healing is something that's good for me

And it's good for me and it's so good to me
My baby, ohhh
Come take control, just grab ahold
Of my body and mind, soon we'll be making it
Honey, oh we're feeling fine
You're my medicine open up and let me in
Darling, you're so great, I can't wait for you to operate

(Heal me, my darling)
I can't wait for you to operate
When I get this feeling, I need sexual healing
When I get this feeling, I need sexual healing
I got to have sexual healing, darling, 'cause I'm alone
I need sexual healing, darling, til you come back home
Please don't procrastinate
It's not good to masturbate

Ironically, of no use in treating gunshot wounds.
This needs to be played ASAP. The world needs sexual healing.
Variety is good. Tune out if you want. Thanks RP! :-({|=
It's painfull to hear an artist of Gaye's quality doing crap like this. :cry:
If I have to listen to this song, I\'d rather hear Ben Harper\'s version
Is this your ideal of eclectic intelligent rock? Sounds more like soul train to me. I came hear to escape this garbage. I guess I\'ll say goodbye. :frustrated: :moon: :frustrated: :moon:
eh..

WHAT?? I was about to reply to your comment on Bjork, agreeing with your recommendation of "Dancer in the Dark" which is an amazing film. But then this?? Perhaps the "ilk" of Gaye and Brown have just hit a tightly wound nerve. Loosen up. Not all music/art/film, etc. HAS to be categorized into a genre. Marvin can croon about sex all day (and night) into my ears!

:( Don\'t like it at all!

marvin was and will ever be one of the greatest r+b voices. r+b today veers of into the baroque, with all the embellishment (see beyonce, mariah, american idol) and grandstanding. marvin did what he had ot do to make the song his own, but nothing more. he never crossed the line that everyone tries to rush over first these days.
Rare enough to see such a highly rated song here, rarer still to see a 5 as the lowest rating. Both, to me, are perfectly apporopriate, and despite years of play this song still satisfies. Or heals. ;) I for one would not at all mind a little more Motown/classic Soul/Funk on RP. Will try to upload some possibilities when uploads aree back up. Meantime, still grooving to this...aaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh. :notworthy: :hug: :bounce: :hug: :notworthy:
:notworthy: Marvin is the best. I love RP
Sing it to me, baby! (BTW, Neil Finn has surprised his live audiences in the past with this!)
An excellent song from an excellent artist :notworthy: , but: why do we hear it on RP :evil: ? This track is probably on every collection of soft rock love songs available on the market! Please play something more unknown/surprising from him, I\'m sure he has more excellent tracks than just this one!
First Bjork \"Big Time Sensuality,\" then \"Sexual Healing.\" Are we in a sex set? I hope so...
One of the most perfect voices I have ever heard...
Drop the funk Marvin! :clap:
AMAZING. :cool:
