Song of the Week 7-12-15

Marvin Gaye by Charlie Puth (feat. Meghan Trainor)

    With its catchy melody and simple lyrics, this song will have you singing all day. The vocals and harmony bring soulful feelings to this heat-filled summer. I know that I am going to have Marvin Gaye on my go-to playlist for a while. What I found very interesting and clever was the use of song lyrics from the artist Marvin Gaye. My favorite few lyrics are samples such as "mercy, mercy me" and "until the dawn/ let's (...) get it on." Charlie Puth's velvety voice effortlessly hits those high notes and essentially completes the song. But the song wouldn't be the hit it is without Meghan Trainor's powerhouse vocals perfectly accenting Charlie Puth's melody. 

    If you haven't already heard this song (have you been living under a rock?!), I hope you enjoy it. ;)
