Sexual Healing" is a song recorded by American singer Marvin Gaye from his album Midnight Love (1982).

It is listed at number 233 on Rolling Stone's list of 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.
When he noticed the collection, Ritz told Gaye he needed some "Sexual Healing," and Marvin had him write some words which became the lyrics to the song.

He moved in with his parents and was shot and killed by his father after an argument on April 1, 1984 – the day before his 45th birthday. His father claimed he shot him in self-defense. This was the first single Gaye released after leaving Motown Records.
