I Heard It Through The One Cup

Monday's One Cup of Java Challenge, as heard on Your Morning Brew, 6-9am weekdays:

R&B singer Marvin Gaye was born on this date in 1939. Shot to death by his father a day before his 45th birthday in 1984, Gaye squeezed a lot of music into his shortened career, charting 17 Top Ten pop singles between ’63 and ’83, including three #1 singles. Your One Cup question this morning – with three possible winners: name a #1 pop song for Marvin Gaye, who would have been 68 today.

One Cup answers: I Heard It Through The Grapevine, Let's Get It On, Got To Give It Up

Bonus Blog Trivia: Marvin Gaye's original surname was simply "Gay." Like his hero Sam Cooke, he added an "e" to the end as an adult.
