xx What's your favorite Marvin-composed song...
« Thread started on: Nov 21st, 2013, 9:39pm »

...recorded by the Originals? I downloaded from iTunes the "Baby I'm For Real" album, plus some songs from a "Very Best Of" compilation from the group. A lot of people I know are crazy about "Baby I'm For Real"--an online friend is having the song played at his wedding next summer. My all-time "Marvin-composed, Originals-sung" song is "I'll Wait For You", due to Marvin's awesome vocal participation. In the first half of the song, before the chorus, he sings the lines: "Your love is sweeter than the finest wine/Only you can thrill this heart of mine"--and then sings the chorus with the group. Then in the song's second half, Marvin sings: "Can't sleep, at night I'm pacing back and forth/Hoping soon to see you walking through the door". And just like he did previously, he sings the chorus with the group, as well as the song's conclusion. So, now, I'd like you guys' two cents' worth on this question.

The Bells and Just to Keep You Satisfied.

The latter has Marvin singing "Oh I love my girl, oh I love my woman" and then he almost single handily handled the rest of the song at the end while the Originals ad-libbed over him (yeah that was Marvin going "I'll keep you satisfied, satisfied, satisfied...I want your body..."). They recorded this while Marvin was in the middle of recording "What's Going On".
