LAWD! I just got pregnant. And Lord knows that's not possible. Gggggesus Marvin.
To me, the best part is near the end, when the crowd starts clapping along...Chills...still

Pearlena Alan
this still gives me chills, only Mr Gaye can make the national anthem sexy as hell!!
Amber B
Nobody can touch Marvin
A Masterpiece performance!!!
Medium Daddy
The least bombastic and the most beautiful rendition; I wish our country sounded -- and felt -- more like this. Maybe we should play it once a day for the next 100 years or so.
Pearlena Alan
Only And I mean only Marvin Gaye can make the National Anthem sexy! I love when he throws those "oh Lords" in there especially at the end. He's like ""oh Lord whooo!" Translation "I'm a bad smooth mf!' Lol
i remember seeing that live, me and a bunch of my friends sitting around drinking beer , having a great ol' time and then Marvin came out and starting singing, we all stopped what we were doing and were mesmerized, after it was over we all looked at each other and said holy fuck was that not the greatest anthem ever, and still to this day 34 years later no one has come close
The best ever.
Good lord....................................Why he so sexy.........
Harold Jackson
The very best rendition ever! What I really liked and observed was when he changed one word in a verse from "Oh say does THAT Star Spangled Banner" to "THY Star Spangled Banner yet wave" just made it more great and expressing his passion. To sum it up in a phrase "Damn! He did that shit!"
Cheryl King
The BEST rendition ever!!! !!!!!!!!!!! He sang that terrible song from his soul n made me like it...True artistry...!
Fred Austin
I remember watching this live in 1983 before he died. I feel like I'm getting old. Lol. I was a kid that loved Marvin. I cried when he died because I heard his music every day. R. I.P😞
Johnny Raider

frisco kid
This is a great version of the national anthem next to Whitney Houston
paul planting
This is my third favorite rendition of the national anthem. My 2nd favorite is Whitney Houston. My favorite was by Jimi Hendrix. That being said, I would love to see the national anthem changed to America, The Beautiful.

Dozens of these views (including other posts of this same video) are mine... I don’t think I have ever got through it once without tearing up... maybe a few chills too. No one has ever done the Anthem with such soul. We miss you Marvin
Steven Martin

Daniel Perez
So smooth, so beautiful!
Marta Dacosta
The Best👏👏👏
Anita Goldsby
damn everything about him and that sexy smooth voice!!
Shari Chapman
The absolute BEST! He was my mother's favorite...
I never liked the national anthem - until I heard this. The only other rendition I liked was when Donna Summer did it at the All-Star game at Fenway Park. They both knew how to bring an electric dynamic to a tune. Marvin was more subtle, but just as powerful. His live version of Distant Lover has to be considered a classic, up there with anything Otis Redding had done. When you're that great, it's ludicrous to say which one is greater - you're just great!
Sir, Bouvier Fitzgerald
And then there was Marvin.....and there will never be another like him ever again. May God Bless your beautiful soul Mr. Marvin Gaye
Arthur Daley
What a Man ,what an American, that's what its all about !
Julie Tashima
I just discovered this today, but it is the best thing I have ever heard. I can't stop listening to it. This gave me chills and goosebumps. No version of the National Anthem will ever touch this.
Every time I hear a national anthem I didn't like. I listen to this one. Love how everyone starts clapping.
Colonel Neville
My Lord! What can you say except that Marvin Gaye said it all.

I defy anyone to watch this through to the end and not be grooving in their seat, twitching their shoulder and swinging their head to Marvin's take on this. Damn amazing. /d

G.O.A.T. Marvin Gaye was spectacular, that was theee best ever i have ever heard, been listening to it for years..! Rest in Heaven Marvin.
Can you imagine if Francis Scott Key ever knew that a descendant of a slave, a free man, would ever do his song such justice??? I saw this when Marvin sung it and it still drops a tear from my eye whenever i hear it. You got my Sub & Like. God bless!!

So gorgeous. He needed to be truly loved.
Brett Reece
There are plenty of artists who could sing the hell out of a song and turn it inside out (Mariah, Christina, just about every American Idol contestant ever) but Marvin Gaye had real SOUL. This still moves me to tears every single time.
