In 1967, Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell hit the charts. The song, written by Ashford & Simpson, was already completely finished when the studio sessions began. The music and lyrics were written out, the only thing that needed to be done was to record it. The rhythm track was done first, than the horns, than Tammi Terrell and finally Marvin Gaye.
