Get on the Soul Train

It has been confirmed: I was born in the wrong decade. Watching old Soul Train episodes from the 70’s makes me want to rip off this mediocre sweatshirt and skinny jeans and put on a pair of flowy high-waisted bell bottoms, some chunky heels and a tight sequined top.
In 1971, Soul Train’s first official show aired on TV in Chicago. Obviously, the general public couldn’t deny the contagious beats and groovy dance moves because the show aired until 2006.
I remember watching Soul Train when I was younger and thinking it was a strange concept…a show dedicated to people dancing to music… I realize now that Soul Train was probably a pioneer for the latest club fashion and dance moves. I mean, puhhhh-leaaaasseee. Those dance moves are AMAZING.
If only there was a club where people still danced like that. I WOULD DIE.
Plus, there’s Don Cornelius, the host. I always let out a small giggle when I see him…what a QT.
