Get down, it’s Soul Train!
OK so it’s not really a proper music video, but it’s got music in it and it is a video, so it’s allowed. Here’s some fantastic Soul Train action from 1974, with all of the outrageous fashions and dance moves from the era. Type “Soul Train 1970s” into youtube and you could lose entire days in a haze of great music and beautiful, glamorous people wearing flares, jumpsuits and very long socks. Our favourite moment in this video is at 2:21 when the gentleman with the white dungarees dives out of shot. The prize for the most stylish couple goes to the folks at 1:21 nonchalantly sauntering down the line.
