Feelin a bit Gaye... pause

This song takes me to a special place. only later i found out how fascinating the story behind the song actually is... check it out.

According to wikipedia,"Is That Enough" is a 1977 song recorded by American soul singer Marvin Gaye. Recorded shortly after a day in court with Anna, the usually moody singer pondered around his recording studio before getting his band together to record this song in which Marvin attacked Anna for using her monetary gain to force Gaye to pay for attorney fees. Using a funkier, blues-based and smooth jazz production, Gaye sung in a comfortable tenor. The last two minutes of the song was given to one of Gaye's saxophonists while Gaye is imagined to have smoked his joint as hinted in the lyric this is a joke/I need a smoke."
