ABC

Music by Berry Gordy and Frederick Perren

Originally Performed by The Jackson 5

"ABC" is a 1970 number-one hit by The Jackson 5. It was released on February 24. "ABC" knocked The Beatles' Let It Be off the top of the Billboard Hot 100 in 1970, and was number one on the soul singles chart for four weeks. Written with a similar structure and feel as the Jacksons' first hit of 1970, "I Want You Back". ABC was performed on television on American Bandstand (February 21, 1970), The Ed Sullivan Show (May 10, 1970), and The Flip Wilson Show (November 4, 1971), among many other broadcasts. "ABC" is considered one of the band's signature songs. It is one of the shortest titles to hit #1, and is the first alphabetically in a list of #1 hits on the Billboard Hot 100. The upbeat lyrics compare learning to love to learning the alphabet.

    Release Date: 1970

Jackson 5 : Best of The Jackson 5

The Jackson 5 were an American popular music family group from Gary, Indiana. Founding group members Jackie, Tito, Jermaine, Marlon and Michael formed the group after performing in an early incarnation called The Jackson Brothers, which originally consisted of a trio of the three older brothers. Active from 1966 to 1990, the Jacksons played from a repertoire of R&B, soul, pop and later disco. During their six-year Motown tenure, The Jackson 5 were one of the biggest pop-music phenomena of the 1970s, and the band served as the launching pad for the solo careers of their lead singers Jermaine and Michael, the latter brother later transforming his early Motown solo fame into greater success as an adult artist. Here are 13 classic favorites from the Jackson brothers

Songlist: ABC, Dancing Machine, Get It Together, I Am Love (Part 1), I Am Love (Part 2), I Want You Back, I'll Be There, Lookin' Through The Windows, The Love You Save, Mama's Pearl, Maybe Tomorrow, Never Can Say Goodbye, Sugar Daddy
