Hmm. Interesting, but it lost me about half way through. A little too discordant (if that's the right word) for me. What I did find interesting is the dispassionate cold art of the white musicians versus the soulful pairing of black artists both at about the same time. Just my two cents at first blush.

Made me watch the original video of Marvin Gaye and Tami Terrell. So good.

Well I was gonna say 'discordant' too, so that's two votes. It's indeed trippy, but in the creepy way you wish five minutes into a trip you could take those mushrooms back.
