Song #86 of 9999 - O-o-h Child by The Five Stairsteps

Song #86 of 9999

Title: O-o-h Child
Artist: The Five Stairsteps
Year: 1970
Album: Stairsteps

I have a list of songs I made from 1970 and there are some good ones on it, but nothing was jumping out at me today. So I decided to dig a little deeper and came up with "O-o-h Child," the sole top ten hit from The Five Stairsteps.

I don't really have a lot to say about this song. I suppose I could talk a little bit about the key changes that allow the verse and chorus to have basically the exact same melody but still sound distinct but who really cares? The song works because it's got a great groove and an uplifting message. Have a great evening everyone!
