And why the hell not? Here are some classic clips from Soul Train that are guaranteed to make you feel good, and maybe even get up and shake your ass!
You know, with all the Seventies-related posts here on DM, it’s good to remember that the decade was not all about white boys with guitars (though some of the clips below are from the early 80s too). These dancers are hot as hell - without resorting to showing acres of flesh - and isn’t it nice to see people actually interacting with each other when they dance.
Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes “Bad Luck”
Kool & The Gang “Jungle Boogie”
(this clip is one of the coolest things I have ever seen)
Rufus & Chaka Khan “Once You Get Started”
(featuring lots of bumping)
Marvin Gaye “Got To Give It Up (Parts 1 & 2)
(in part 2 Marvin joins the audience for some groovin’)
Trussell “Love Injection”
(moving into the 80s with a boogie classic)
Yellow Magic Orchestra “Firecracker”
(two different cultures in perfect tandem)
