Jimmy Fallon’s Ragtime Gals are at it again. This time they brought in Steve Carell to sing Marvin Gaye’s Sexual Healing. Once again, they nailed it.
Now listen, it’s pretty safe to say that not a single one of us are scrolling through our iPod looking for Barbershop Quartet music when we’re about to have that special moment with our special someone. Setting that aside, these guys give you another hilarious take on a song that nobody but Jimmy Fallon could imagine in this style of music. And who knows, the song may still work for you, regardless of how it’s being delivered.
So here it is, ladies and gentlemen. The Ragtime Gals featuring Steve Carell, singing Sexual Healing as only they know how:
A little more about the original song:
Sexual Healing was released by Marvin Gaye in 1982. It was his first single released on Columbia Records after he ended his long time relationship with Motown Records. The song spent ten weeks on top of the Billboard Hot R&B Singles chart, floated all over the Billboard Hot 100 chart – peaking at number three – and spent weeks in the Top 30 on several other music charts.
Aside from getting rave reviews and winning two Grammy awards (Best Male R&B Vocal Performance and Best R&B Instrumental Performance), Sexual Healing is listed as number 233 on Rolling Stone’s list of the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.
The song is still considered a pop culture phenomenon and is most likely featured on at least one of your “put someone in the mood” playlists.
