Interesting facts and trivia about Let's Get It On - Da Producers MPG Groove Mix. By Songfacts®.

Originally written by 1950s one-hit-wonder Ed Townsend ("For Your Love" in 1958), the song originally addressed the author's desire to get on with life after beating alcoholism. Marvin Gaye completely changed the lyrics (and meaning) to the song after meeting Janis Hunter, the woman who would become his second wife. The song helped cement Gaye's reputation as one of the greatest singers of baby-making music. Song writing credits on the song went to both Gaye and Townsend.

"Let's Get It On" was the title track of Gaye's 1973 album. It topped the Billboard Pop Singles chart for two weeks and the Billboard Soul Singles chart for eight weeks. It also made history as Motown's most successful release in the United States to that date and the second most successful song of 1973 (behind Tony Orlando & Dawn's "Tie A Yellow Ribbon Round The Ole Oak Tree").

This song's co-writer Ed Townsend also produced the album with Marvin and co-wrote the three other songs on the first side of the disc, including "Keep Gettin' It On." He wrote with Gaye again on songs for Marvin's 1978 album Here, My Dear.
