Top 100 - 100/79 I heard it through the grapevine (Marvin Gaye 1968)

I_Heard_It_Through_The_Grapevine.jpg

 

Beaucoup l'ignorent mais ce titre fulgurant l'une des plus grandes chansons enregistrées par la célèbre Motown est a l'origine un titre de Gladys Knight and the pips (1967)

tres vite Marvin Gaye,  alors le poulain fétiche de Berry Gordy patron du label Motown(il a épousé Anna ,  la fille de Gordy )reprendra cette magnifique  chanson qui parle d'infidelité et de trahison au sein d'un couple et en fera un numéro 1 dans les Charts

Ce titre qui va devenir un incontournable tant du répertoire de l'immense Marvin Gaye que de l'histoire de la musique "Soul" sera a nouveau repris par Creedence Clearwater Revival  quelques années plus tard dans une incroyable version de plus de 11 ' sur l'album ' Cosmo factory (1970)

l'album sur lequel se trouve ce titre sublime s'appellera d'abord 'in the groove '(1968) avant d'être rebaptisé du nom  même de la chanson 'I heard it through the grapevine en 1969

 

Paroles

Ooh, I bet you're wond'rin' how I knew
'bout your plans to make me blue
With some other guy you knew before
Between the two of us guys you know I love you more
It took me by surprise I must say
When I found out yesterday
Dontcha know that I

Heard it through the grapevine
Not much longer would you be mine
Oh I heard it through the grapevine
Oh I'm just about to lose my mind
Honey, honey yeah
(Heard it through the grapevine)
(Not much longer would you be my baby, ooh, ooh, ooh)

I know a man ain't supposed to cry
But these tears I can't hold inside
Losin' you would end my life you see
'cause you mean that much to me
You could have told me yourself
That you love someone else
Instead I

Heard it through the grapevine
Not much longer would you be mine
Oh I heard it through the grapevine
And I'm just about to lose my mind
Honey, honey yeah
(Heard it through the grapevine)
(Not much longer would you be my baby, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh)

People say believe half of what you see
Son, and none of what you hear
But I can't help bein' confused
If it's true please tell me dear
Do you plan to let me go
For the other guy you loved before?
Dontcha know I

Heard it through the grapevine
Not much longer would you be mine
Baby I heard it through the grapevine
Ooh I'm just about to lose my mind
Honey, honey yeah
(Heard it through the grapevine)
(Not much longer would you be my baby, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)

Honey, honey, I know
That you're lettin' me go
Said I heard it through the grapevine
