Canayjun, Eh!
Just going over my request list from last Saturday's corporate Christmas party, and remembered that someone wanted "Sexual Healing" by Marvin Gaye AND Shaggy... some sort of mash-up or mix, I guess...

At any rate, I don't have it, and can't seem to find any reference to it at All Music Guide...

Ideas??

I think that Shaggy's version of the song was just a few years ago. You may want to check out iTunes for it. I did a search on Shaggy Albums and could not find it.

I agree with Sowndman. Sounds like someone heard the Max-A-Million version, which is a dancehall reggae cover of Sexual Healing. If you can get your hands on a sample, it'd be worth seeing if that's what the client heard.

Could be a mash-up, could be the Sting Remix of Boombastic, but I bet it is Max-A-Million.
 
I play the Max-a-million version all the time and it works great.But I have also found that shaggy has a version the same as Max-a-million but it runs to 4 minuts the other one runs 3:25 minuts so if you ar a time bandit like I am than it makes a differince

Unfortunately, this was a client whom I'd never met before, and may never see again, so I would have no way of confirming exactly what he was looking for.... although he specifically mentioned Shaggy and Marvin Gaye.

I just wanted to check with the pros here at ProDJ to see whether anyone had heard of a Shaggy/Marvin Gaye version of the song. If you folks haven't heard of it.... then there's a very good chance that it doesn't exist.

Thanks gang....

As Steve mentioned earlier - try the Sting remix of Shaggy's 'Boombastic' - this version got more airplay than the original according to the R&R charts, and was available on both the CD single and album as well, I believe.

Just did a quick search. The 'Sting' remix is available on the Best of Shaggy.
It's also available on Napster.
 
There is and are a few different versions of this song.There is the House mix 2003 version and the Funky mix of this song each running 6 minuts or more.

The link you posted for Sexual Healing - remix with Shaggy and Marvin Gaye is indeed Max-a-Million's - Sexual Healing from 1995. For many years, this has been requested as a Marvin Gaye remix.

After giving a listen to both versions, I hear they are the same. Must have been mislabeled on a P2P network at one time. I need the Maxamillion one anyway, so I just ordered it from Amazon.

11 years and counting - Max-a-Million still packs a dance floor. Definitely a key part of a 90's music library.
