Your Own Personal Soul Train

Monday morning got you down? I hear ya. In honor of an uneventful Monday morning, I thought I'd put up clips from some old episodes of Soul Train. They have a whole channel on You Tube which includes surprises such as footage a 19-year-old Al Sharpton, Jackson family home videos and early New Edition interviews.

You can't watch these and and still be grumpy. People just don't dance -- or dress -- like this anymore. Le sigh.

This is The O'Jay's "Love Train," whicxh features a young Fred Barry of "What's Happenin'" fame.

"Ballero" by War is an underrated song.
