Here’s A Mash Up Of Ratt And Marvin Gaye, I Heard It Round And Round
Some of these mash ups can be fun, some you don't know what the person who made it was thinking. This one seems to be spot on.
Marvin Gaye put so much emotion in the song thanks to Norman Whitfield, who produced the track and gave him very specific instructions. Whitfield had Gaye sing slightly higher than his normal range, which created the strained vocal, and he made him do it over and over until he got it right.
This is the only song to have 3 number ones wuth different artists, CCR gad a gut abd si dud Gladys Knight and the Pips.
This was RATT's first hit and put them on the map. Fueled by a cute video starring Milton Berle. His son was the manager and said it would be funny if his Dad was in the video. RATT went on to have a couple more hits on the radio and on the rock album charts.
