1 Marvin Gaye - What's Goin' on
With What's Going On, Gaye meditated on what had happened to the American dream of the past -- as it related to urban decay, environmental woes, military turbulence, police brutality, unemployment, and poverty. These feelings had been bubbling up between 1967 and 1970, during which he felt increasingly caged by Motown's behind-the-times hit machine and restrained from expressing himself seriously through his music. Finally, late in 1970, Gaye decided to record a song that the Four Tops' Obie Benson had brought him, "What's Going On". When Berry Gordy decided not to issue the single, deeming it uncommercial, Gaye refused to record any more material until he relented.

I had a bit more time to put this together, leading to a bit of research, some downloads and such, but ultimately, when putting together a list of five, you tend to go with the five you already know and know best. Still, the best part of these lists are going through old songs and picking your favourites and maybe rediscovering some you haven't heard in awhile. That said, this list could easily change in a few weeks.
As with my Best Songs of the 60s list, I'm limiting this to one to one song per artist. That gives me some variety, and is actually easier that way (since I don't have to go through my favourite artist's entire catalogue to decide my top few from them, instead I can just chose my favourite song).
5. "Hurricane" by Bob Dylan from Desire (1976)
Inspired by the story of boxer Ruben "Hurricane" Carter, whom Dylan believed to be wrongly convicted for double-homicide, comes this cinematic tour de force. …

Marvin, on behalf of the world, I apologize that your sad warning has not been heeded and we humans continue to suck ass.
That is all.
