Song of the Day #374: ‘Let’s Get it On’ – Marvin Gaye

gayeThe thing I love best about this, the ultimate booty call song, is that in the middle of nearly 5 minutes of pleading and pressuring this woman to have sex with him, Marvin Gaye sings these lines: “I ain’t gonna worry, no, I ain’t gonna push, I won’t push you, baby.” Gee, imagine what it would sound like if he was gonna push her!

To honor the unabashed carnal desire of ‘Let’s Get it On,’ I will now present the poetic stylings of YouTube commenters who have chimed in on this Marvin Gaye classic.

“LETS GET IT OOOOON!!!!! lol amazin song! my sis said she wants this song to be playin when she first does it! lol” – blondekroken

“sex with a girl on this kinda of music let you feel te real love” – hospitalia

“i could bust a 3 some with this song” – gory1727

“i may be young but this is love making music umm” – KANDYKANNJAMES

“i just got it on to this song a couple hours ago 😉 with the love of my life” – basketball8888

“playing this song she practically HAS to…..” – wasgeht18

And my favorite (cover the children’s eyes!):

“The most beautiful, romantic, thoughtful, wonderful way to ask for some pussy ever!” – commonsense1957

I’ve been really tryin’, baby
Tryin’ to hold back this feelin’ for so long
And if you feel like I feel, baby
Then come on, oh, come on
Whoo, let’s get it on
Ah, babe, let’s get it on
Let’s love, baby
Let’s get it on, sugar
Let’s get it on

We’re all sensitive people
With so much to give
Understand me, sugar
Since we got to be
Let’s live
I love you

There’s nothin’ wrong
With me lovin’ you
Baby, no, no
And givin’ yourself to me can never be wrong
If the love is true
Oh, babe, ooh, ooh

Don’t you know
How sweet and wonderful life can be?
I’m askin’ you, baby
To get it on with me
Ooh, ooh, ooh

I ain’t gonna worry, I ain’t gonna push
Won’t push you, baby
So come on, come on, come on, come on, come on, baby
Stop beatin’ ’round the bush, hey

Let’s get it on, ooh, ooh
Let’s get it on
You know what I’m talkin’ ’bout
Come on, baby, hey, hey
Let your love come out
If you believe in love
Let’s get it on, ooh, ooh
Let’s get it on, baby
This minute, oh yeah
Let’s get it on
Please, please, get it on
Hey, hey

I know you know
What I’ve been dreamin’ of
Don’t you, baby?
My whole body is in love

I ain’t gonna worry, no, I ain’t gonna push
I won’t push you, baby, whoo
Come on, come on, come on, come on, come on, darlin’
Stop beatin’ ’round the bush, hey

Gonna get it on
Beggin’ you, baby, I want to get it on
You don’t have to worry that it’s wrong
If the spirit moves you, let me groove you good
Let your love come down
Oh, get it on, come on, baby

Do you know I mean it?
I’ve been sanctified
Hey, hey
Girl, you give me good feelings, so good

Nothin’ wrong with love
If you want to love me
Just let yourself go
Oh, baby
Let’s get it on

    Figured only Jack Black could restore any dignity to your blog at this point 😉
