Musings From A Musical Mind

Cover of You`Re All I Need (Mlps) (Shm)

Last night I was watching the new musical show called “Duets” and heard this great duet as made famous by the late Tammi Terrell and Marvin Gaye.  I had to look it up and post it for you to enjoy today.  There are many music videos of this song on youtube – but I think this is the nicest one – what a GREAT song!!

It’s a funny thing – how listening to a certain melody or some past lyrics in a forgotten song,  can totally transport me to an earlier time and circumstance.

The year was 1968 – I was 7 years old.  I used to watch a television show that would feature different popular artists in the 60’s.  My favorite song was “Up, up and away” by the 5th dimension.  I thought it was important to have a favorite song, even when I was 7 – so that was it.  And only because I saw them perform that song on television.  I’m sure that I must have also heard “You’re all I need to get by” on that same program because I am almost sure that it is on that show where I first heard it.  But if I’m wrong about that detail it would have been when moving to Seattle from Canada in 1969 and I listened to top 40 hits on a little transistor radio.

Do you remember it?  Where were you when you first heard it?  Take a listen and see if it doesn’t take you back.

  1. Wonderful! I have to honestly say that I don’t remember that song (a bit before my time). What it does take me back to, however, is the day that I first saw the woman who, eventually, became my beautiful bride. :) I looked across the room we were in and saw her and knew, without a doubt, that someday she and I would be married. Her love for the Lord was amazing and I fell in love. (Mind you… she’s really cute too!). Now, 19+ years later, she is still my beautiful bride.
