Ach du Lieber und Stoller!

January 24, 2014

Herr Marvin Gaye singt das Lied “Wie Schon Das Ist.” Wunderbar!

Okay, it’s a Holland-Dozier-Holland tune and not by Lieber and Stoller. And it’s in German. Motown stars recorded their hit tunes in other languages, for export.  Of course, so did The Beatles.
