Marvin Gaye - What's Going On?
Each song starts and you're just like "oh, yeah! It's gonna be good". It was actually around that time when I had that room when I first played Joni Mitchell, it was one of the other records that I had there. It was a time when I'd left home, I was on my own, and it was just a record that I would have on and made me really happy; it always made me happy, it was like an instant kind of lift in the room and I just wanted to sing and dance along. It's filled with really joyous music.
