What You Gave Me (song)

Recorded on the throes of the final stage of Gaye and Terrell's duet recordings, it was the second release off their album, Easy. Like much of the album, it's debated whether or not the then-ailing Terrell took part in the recording or did co-writer Valerie Simpson sub for Terrell.
While Marvin later insisted Terrell was subbed by Simpson, Simpson was recently quoted that Terrell took part in the recordings. Whatever the case, the song gave the duo a modest charting peaking at number forty-nine pop and number six R&B.
It was revived years later as a club hit by Diana Ross in 1978. Her version peaked at #86 on the R&B charts.
