"Come Get to This" is a 1973 hit for American soul singer Marvin Gaye, released on the Tamla (Motown) label.

The song, released a few months after his seminal anthem of seduction, "Let's Get It On", was built among a fast-paced doo-wop-like recording.

This record was one of few recordings Gaye began recording when he cut the "What's Going On" single in 1970.

The song discusses the return of an old flame to the singer's arms. The song topped out at the Billboard Pop Singles Chart at #21 and peaked at #3 on Billboard's soul singles charts.

During Gaye's concerts afterwards, the singer performed a much slower blues-oriented version of the song setting it up as the build-up of "Let's Get It On".

Gaye's live version of the song was actually initiated by the sound of Marvin's Trouble Man album, which had a unique blues flavor of its own merit.

Singer Joe covered the song on his latest album, Signature.
