First recorded by Smokey Robinson & The Miracles in 1966 (written by Norman Whitfield and Barrett Strong).

The third version was recorded by Gladys Knight and the Pips, in 1967.

Marvin Gaye recorded it earlier than Gladys Knight and the Pips but didn't release it until 1968, though it didn't become a major hit until the following year. There was also a cover by Creedence Clearwater Revival in 1970.

These are the most famous.
