Easily the best cover of 2007: Hot 8 brass band‘s rendition of Marvin Gaye‘s comeback megahit Sexual Healing, a timeless song written in the Belgian resort town of Ostend, Marvin’s home away from cocaine in the early 1980s (note: the video was shot in Ostend’s Casino Kursaal). Those horns and Marvin’s lyrics are straight butta.

Hey there, I’ve recently bought the Hot8’s album and I’m digging both the Sexual healing and the What’s my name? tracks. Tru thoughts have released ‘It’s real’ as an mp3 on their free track section of the site.
