YouTube-sday™: Wednesday late edition two-fer

Since I totally blew last week, and yesterday for that matter, let's put up two great versions of the same song. First we have Gladys Knight and the Pips, followed by Marvin Gaye, doing their respective versions of "I Heard It Through the Grapevine". Gladys sounds like a woman scorned while Marvin sings his version with much pain in his heart.

Interestingly, these are versions 3 and 4 of this song. The original version that was released is by the great Smokey Robinson and The Miracles. And YouTube epic fails when trying to find it. :( So I'll give you this Miracles classic instead. Version 2 was done by the Isley Brothers, though never released. What a shame.
