Crystal McCombs: ‘What’s Going On’: still no answer in 2021 | Chroniclers

Crystal McCombs News and Recording

Too many of you cry

Brother, brother, brother

There are far too many of you dying

You know we have to find a way

To bring some love here today,

We don’t need to climb

See, war is not the answer

Because only love can conquer hate

You know we have to find a way

To bring some love here today.

– From the 1971 song “What’s Going On” by the late Marvin Gaye

Marvin Gaye was a prophetic musical genius. And his most memorable song is a product of the times and events he witnessed in public and in private in the late 1960s and early 1970s. The country was embroiled in anti-Israel protests. US involvement in Vietnam, demonstrations that often turned violent. “What’s Going On” was written in search of the reasons for the chaos that seemed to have gripped the country.

Father, father, We don’t need to climb, You see, war is not the answer, For only love can overcome hate.
