classick viddyo: Soul Train

"We wish you love, peace, and SOUL"
There are very few things in this world that we here at the Bobka appreciate more than a well-executed dance move. The physical manifestation of the rhythm divine is a thing of beauty in and of itself, to say nothing of the joy that an exuberant dance party spreads to those involved (and even to those who prefer to stay on the sidelines). This is why we've always held a special place in our hearts for Soul Train, the legendary dance show that taught white people all over America how to properly boogie down.

And now, in what is perhaps the greatest dance video ever assembled, we present you with a highly-abridged "Best Of The Soul Train Line" retrospective. For those who don't remember, The Soul Train Line is the segment of the show where dancers strut, spin, gyrate, bounce, kick, and/or slide their way through a gauntlet of fellow revelers. This segment gave birth to some of the flyest dance moves ever to hit the airwaves, and a lot of them are captured in this video. Our personal favorite is the dude at the 2:58 mark -- you just don't see that kind of creativity nowadays.
