In 1971, Marvin Gaye released this song on the Motown label. It was inspired by a police incident, where they were quite cruel. This all started with an anti-war protest, which were quite common these days. There, a member of the Four Tops witnessed the police acting violent against the protestors. He was upset and discussed it with the writer of this song. Now it’s more known as a protest song than what it actually was: a song about love and understanding. Later, the 4 Non Blondes renamed their song to avoid confusion. I think the song is very good, in text and in story, so take a listen to
