This week’s Music Monday song is nothing new, i’ve probably featured Marvin more times than any other artist, but what is new is the manner in which it is played; Enter Hot 8 Brass Band. I discovered this song from the 2014 movie ‘Chef’ (which is amazing, please find it somewhere and rent it!). The whole soundtrack is dynamite, but this song really puts a rhythm in my feet.
I was always under the impression that no one could sing Marvin Gaye’s songs better than he could, but it looks like I was wrong. Steve Carell and The Ragtime Gals absolutely own this version of ‘Sexual Healing’, and this is further proof that there is nothing Jimmy Fallon or Steve Carell can’t do. Carell got nominated for a Golden Globe yesterday for Foxcatcher yesterday as well, so congrats to Michael Gary Scott. I have a four hour bus ride to New York this afternoon, and you bet your sweet ass I’ll be listening to this cover of ‘Sexual Healing’ the entire way.
