Video: 7 classic Soul Train performances

We were sad to see the passing of legendary Soul Train host Don Cornelius yesterday. Aside from influencing dance culture, the show influenced the music world with many great live performances. Let’s have a look back at some of the best from the show like Aretha Franklin singing Rock Steady in the above video. See David Bowie, James Brown and more after the jump.

David Bowie – Fame

Jackson 5 – I Want You Back

Marvin Gaye – Let’s Get It On

James Brown – Superbad – James is barely able to make it through his performance while being distracted by Soul Train dancer Damita Jo Freeman.

Stevie Wonder – Superstition

Al Green – Love and Happiness
