Soul Train Streamin'

An old favorite, Bedazzled.com, has just posted a bunch of cool YouTube videos of vintage Soul Train segments.

You can't go wrong with any of the Soul Train line videos, but Love Train gets the nod for Don Cornelius's wicked Afro:

And for performances (albeit lip-synced), we'll choose the Five Stairsteps' gorgeous O-o-h Child. About the only negative thing about the song is that its tempo is too slow to fast-dance to, and too fast to slow-dance. Although it's not at all explicit in the lyrics, we can't help but interpret this song as a plea for civil rights.
