Music Fridays: Remembering “Soul Train” Edition
The internet is awash in memories of “Soul Train” this week, because of the loss of Don Cornelius, the host, who died from an apparent suicide. A little-discussed fact of the internet is that watching YouTube clips of “Soul Train” is a surprisingly effective form of stress relief.
And so is partying down at the Panda Party! So come join us and spin some tunes. Sadly, we can’t create a “Soul Train”-style line with our cute avatars, but you can play at home.
RIP, Don Cornelius. My memories of that era are really dim, since I was a little kid, but I remember that well into the 90s, every dance party occasion would burst, at some point, into a “Soul Train” line. Now it’s more like a circle thing, where people are pushed into the middle to show off their moves. I am fine with both methods, though feel the line version was less pressure-intensive. Share your memories in comments! Or come into Panda Party and share them there.
