Old School Friday - SOUL TRAIN

I didn't watch Soul Train much - it was big in the 70s but I was busy going to college and working full time. When I did get to watch what I remember the most was the big Soul Train sign with the overlapping letters in it - all shiny and gold behind the stage and, of course, the dancers. I would try to catch the show when I could to see the new dance floor moves. God forbid I should ever get caught doing The Freddy again, lol.

It might interest you all to know that the show ran for 35 years! It started in 1971 and ran through 2006. It's not on television anymore BUT - hold on to your platforms! - there's a movie in the works! In the script writing phase, Soul Train The Movie is about two male dancers and is a comedy. Okay, if you say so. If it makes it to the big screen I will certainly be among those to go see it.

Here's a fun video showing the Soul Train Line - looking back at these fashions just gives me a giggle!

Here's The Miracles - all decked out in hot pink!

Here's the O'Jays with Back Stabber from 1972:
