18. Marvin Gaye - Let's Get It On

Found on: Let's Get It On (1973)
Picked by: PA, WA, RN, EV

If you couldn't tell, we've reached the baby-making section of the list. Paste magazine had some commentary about this song recently. I can't find the exact wording, but it was something to the effect of "Let's Get It On could get a polar bear and a toaster to mate." I used to wonder if the line "stop beating 'round the bush" was entendre, but dismissed that as too tawdry for Marvin. Then I found out he had a song (on this very album, in fact) called You Sure Love To Ball. No kidding.
