The best rendition of this country's National Anthem. Ever.
I seen many people, sing The Star Spangle Banner, in many different ways, but the way Marvin Gaye, sang it brought me to tears.
Bishma Wood
Oh man. Pure genius. Put me to tears.
LaGeisha M. Nicholson
LAWD! I just got pregnant. And Lord knows that's not possible. Gggggesus Marvin.
Jon-Westley Crist
To me, the best part is near the end, when the crowd starts clapping along...Chills...still
Maria M Gonzalez Nieves
I am appreciating this more today. Our anthem was just recently laid to rest #fergie
I just heard Fergie's rendition of the Anthem so I had to come here to cleanse my ears of that nonsense.
ECU Flash
This will never be matched. Marvin will never be matched. Superb talent!!!
Pearlena Alan
this still gives me chills, only Mr Gaye can make the national anthem sexy as hell!!
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.
Amber B
Nobody can touch Marvin
Tonya Sims
Marvin and Whitney and that's it!
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
those shades.....
A Masterpiece performance!!!
Tasha Betta
And he was not lip synching.
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😞
Robert Tiberious
Dammmm between this rendition and Whitney Houston's, the national Anthem has never been sung better..
Cheryl King
The BEST rendition ever!!! !!!!!!!!!!! He sang that terrible song from his soul n made me like it...True artistry...!
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!"
I never knew he sang the anthem. One word: Damnnn!... He brought the smoothness. Marvin, Marvin, Marvin!
Shaft Wesley
and then Marvin Gaye won the NBA finals...
The best ever.
Jordan Washington
Anyone come back here after hearing Fergie?
Tasha Betta

Marvin was so smooth ❤
Wali Bashir
Nobody & I mean NOBODY did this better than MARVIN! People actually clapped with rhythm to this version of the Star Spangled Banner.
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
When you can make The Star Spangled Banner sexy.

You don't have to like this version, but what you are NOT going to do is lie and say Fergie's version was better.
I just can't stop listening to this.

Marvin had you wanting to get busy to the National Anthem-lol
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
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.
Greatest rendition of the National Anthem of all time. Of all time. Marvin, you’re so missed
David's Blessings
I remember this day and watching this live on TV. This was beautifully shocking. I was like "what did he just do?" Amazing.
Sabrina Goodman
That was soooo good!
The River Hudson
Dear Fergie, this is how it's done.
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.
seven shouldn't have listened to this rendition. One of the best my ears have ever heard! .
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!
Lori B
I had to see this after Fergie
Son of the Stone
Play this at my family cookout we'll get Down to it
Jo Thompson

Steven Martin
I'd actually stand for this version
He invented the remix!!!

daphne rodriguez
Me Tears!!!❤!!!❤!!❤ Daphne💜
Marvin Gaye made love to the anthem. Best ever.
He really had stars in his eyes when he sang this
kim Parker
MG,...sang,..ssb with love,...and he said that ;..he loves this mg.
Anita Goldsby
damn everything about him and that sexy smooth voice!!
Yes he did! He did that!
RIP.... One of the best versions EVER
"I love America, you stay away awhile to realize how great his country is" If only some people who feel "victimized" and "mistreated" by living here now, realized this today.
Line Danzer
THIS is how the National Anthem is sung! With depth, emotion. and total devotion to this country. He says, "Oh Lord" at the very end. This man had a true relationship with God. He was definitely moved in souls when he delivered this song to us. I will be ever grateful to Mr. Gaye for sharing his gift.
Every time I hear a national anthem I didn't like. I listen to this one. Love how everyone starts clapping.
Brain Over Brawn
Came hear to cleanse myself after the Fergie debacle.

Linda Lang
Who came here after Fergie, hoping she’d see this & learn? 😫😂
Tanith Jackson
Who else but Marvin Gaye could have turned "The Star Spangled Banner" into a soul anthem? And a sexy soul anthem at that. God bless that man, he was so marvelous.
Darryl K

Ivone F Joaquina
I remember this clearly- They don't show it on this clip, but one player was really going nuts- Marvin was the man. Can't wait for his movie coming soon. I love Marvin Gaye.

GOOSEBUMPS!!  Ice with the big grin - wish they could have shown Doc!!
Today there are great singer , artist , but no one can arrive at the level of Marvin Gaye , A unique voice and a writer incredibly ahead with the time , for sure he has reached unbeatable goals of creative mind
I was actually at this game with my dad and gramps. Rest in peace grampa! I wish I was old enough to appreciate what I was witnessing back then! The absolute best rendition of this song EVER!
Eric Stewart
god bless him.
The crowd began clapping to the beat before he even finished...that's how dope this was, how dope he was. Incredible.
ocean paradises
Amazing.. magic.. this can only be done in that special way by Marvin Gaye.. So sad, that the world lost this beautiful man and genius artist so early... God bless your beautiful soul for ever Marvin.

There is absolutely no one and I mean NO-ONE that would ever sing that Anthem as good as that as long as there's life on this planet.
