When you think about it, Soul Train was absolutely fantastic. It’s label of “the hippest trip in America” couldn’t possibly be any more true. And why we don’t have some sort of modernized version of it today is beyond me. Not only did the show get amazing live performances by some of the best R&B, Groove, Soul acts in the country, the line dances were legendary.
I mean think about it. These people are your parents. They knew how to get down just as well as anyone and were proud to show it.
I swear to God every single one of these videos is worth watching in its entirety.
Here are the best Soul Train line dances of all time
The O’Jay’s “Love Train”
Earth, Wind, and Fire’s “Mighty Mighty”
Curtis Mayfield’s “Get Down”
Fred Wesley and the JB’s “Doing it to Death”
Aretha Franklin’s “Rock Steady”
Graham Central Station’s “Release Yourself”
Glady Knight and the Pips “Daddy Could Swear”
Even More Uncoachable Stuff
