"Pretty Little Baby" is a 1965 single released by soul singer Marvin Gaye on the Tamla label. Co-written by Gaye, Clarence Paul and David Hamilton and produced by Paul, the song described the narrator's longing and pleading to his woman to not leave his side after the two had an argument. The song was Marvin's second Top 40 single of 1965 after the success of his first number-one Billboard hit, "I'll Be Doggone". A non-album track until the release of his Anthology album nearly ten years later, this song was a top forty success for Gaye peaking at number sixteen on the R&B chart and number twenty-five pop. Background vocals by The Andantes with Instrumentation by The Funk Brothers.
Originally this tune issued as "Purple Snowflakes" which is a 1964 Christmas tune by Marvin Gaye with lots of carol quotes before it was later reused on Marvin's top 40 hit "Pretty Little Baby" in 1965.
