“Love Train” by The O’Jays

“Use ta Be My Girl” by The O’Jays
This crossover hit by The O’Jays spent 5 weeks on the R&B Singles chart and peaked at number four on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart. Now a fan favorite at The O’Jays concerts, the group pairs the catchy rhythm with smooth dance moves and miles of stage presence.
