Saturday Morning's Greatest Hits: Oh Girl (1972)

From Soul Train comes the last great crossover hit for the Chicago based vocal group, the Chi-Lites.

"Oh Girl" hit #1 on the charts in 1972, and was later covered by British singer Paul Young some 20-odd years later. Not only that, but the group's other big hit, "Have You Seen Her", was also covered by a solo act--rapper MC Hammer, who created new lyrics for his version, released in 1990 on his album, "Please Hammer Don't Hurt Them". Funny how that works, isn't it?

Here's "Oh Girl". It's slow dance time.
