Song #49 of 9999 - I Want You Back by The Jackson 5

Song #49 of 9999

Title: I Want You Back
Artist: The Jackson 5
Year: 1969
Album: Diana Ross Presents The Jackson 5

I used this song as an example of polyphonic texture in my AP Music Theory class yesterday and it just reminded me how much I love the song. One of the best bass lines ever recorded, expert production and a wonderful performance. This video is from 1971, so Michael was probably 13 at the time and clearly already had a commanding stage presence. And now I will just shut up and let you listen to the song. Don't be afraid to dance!
