Marvin Gaye - Baby Don't You Do It

About "Baby Don't You Do It"

"Baby Don't You Do It" is a 1964 single by American singer Marvin Gaye. Released on the Tamla label, this song discusses a man who is at a standstill with his girlfriend, who he feels is neglecting his love stating "Don't break my heart/...I've tried to do my best".

Featured on the Holland–Dozier–Holland-written and produced track, for the first time on a Marvin Gaye record, were Motown's top session girl group, the Andantes. The song was originally written and intended for the Supremes, but eventually reassigned to Marvin Gaye to record.

In October 1964 Gaye's single peaked at number 27 on both the Billboard Hot 100 and the Top 100 singles chart in Cashbox, with Cashbox affording the single a number 14 peak on its R&B chart (Billboard was not maintaining an R&B chart at this time).

Billboard stated that "it's that powerhouse beat that can't be beat." Cash Box described it as "an electrifying pleader that rocks along in sensational vocal and instrumental fashion."
