Jackson_5_tv_special_1972The trigger for today’s Jackson 5 song “ABC” was due to hearing it as segment music on Fox Business last week. It triggered a memory of the choreographed “five-some” dancing and singing back on 1970’s TV, although I don’t recall watching them very much.

Nevertheless, hearing them and watching a young Michael Jackson had me remembering why they were popular … and particularly why “he” became a superstar. So for today’s Music Monday, here’s  a live recording of “ABC” from YouTube.
