Marvin Gaye & Kim Weston – It’s Got To Be A Miracle (This Thing Called Love) – 1966

The often covered “It Takes Two” may be the most popular and memorable  Marvin & Kim duet,  but “It’s Got To Be A Miracle,” from the “Take Two” LP, is my all time favorite duet the two ever recorded!

I hope this post can find and convince just ONE  “oldies” disc jokey and/or just ONE  “quiet storm” jock  to play this awesome song –  then I will have done something to further the cause of keeping this classic music alive.

I just don’t understand why I never hear this beautiful love song anywhere anymore!  Check out these lyrics below.

It’s Got To Be A Miracle (This Thing Called Love) Composed by Vernon Bullock, Sylvia Moy & William “Mickey” Stevenson

All it takes is 2 hearts that care
Sprinkle just a little tenderness there
& like the tiny grains of sand that build a mountain so high
Each tender moment builds love between a girl & guy

It’s got to be a miracle, this thing called love
Never never never let go, this thing called love
Take a boy like you & a girl like me
2 lonely people we used to be
We shared a little time, tears & laughter
It seems that we will be happy ever after

All it takes is 2 arms that know
They gotta hold you, baby, & never let go
Throw in a lover’s quarrel & it’s sealed with a kiss
We know that heaven must be like this

It’s got to be a miracle, this thing called love
Never never never let go, this thing called love
I used to wander, I used to roam
Like a ship in a stormin’ sea, tryin’ to get home
When we found each other, heaven found a way
‘Cause you were the dawn of a bright sunny day

[Instrumental]

All it takes is just a little time
3 little words, baby, that mean ‘Will you will be mine?’
Add a few tears 2 lovers will shed
& every sweet word that’s ever been said

It’s got to be a miracle, this thing called love
Never never never let go, this thing called love
Take a girl like me & a boy like you
Long lonely hours we once knew
We have each other & live what life’s worth
All love is strong enough to move heaven & earth

(repeat & fade):
It’s got to be a miracle, this thing called love
Never never never let go, this thing called love

Just beautiful! It really takes me back to my age of innocence and puppy love!

The one and only Marvin & Kim set “Take Two” was recently re-released as “Take Two Plus” in 2007.   Check out my review and listen to two additional Marvin & Kim duets  on my EOINA Companion blog here.

TRIVIA: Did you know that Kim turned down the song “Dancing in the Street?”  Martha Reeves and The Vandellas then recorded it –  and you know what happened to them!

Musically Yours,
