Love Is In The Air: Oh Girl



February 25, 2020



Month-long celebration of Love featuring Love Songs from the 70’s.

Can you believe the month is just about over? Time sure does fly when you are having fun… or something like that.

You are more than welcome to join in the fun, all you need to do is include a link to your post in the comments so that everyone can visit. The more the merrier :)  Your songs do not need to be from the 70’s, but they do need to be Love Songs.

Alright! Let’s get this party started! Fill up those waterbeds, break out the black lights and disco balls and let’s have some fun!

The song for today -

Oh Girl by The Chi-Lites


Wikipedia tells us about this song:

"Oh Girl" is a single recorded by the soul vocal group, The Chi-Lites and released on Brunswick Records in 1972. Included on the group's 1972 album A Lonely Man, "Oh Girl" centers on a relationship on the verge of break-up. The song is led by Eugene Record, who also wrote and produced it.
"Oh Girl" was the Chi-Lites' first and only No. 1 single on the Billboard Hot 100, peaking at that position in May 1972 for one week. The single also reached the top position of the Billboard R&B Singles chart the following month, remaining in that position for two weeks. Billboard ranked it as the No. 13 song for 1972. In addition, it reached No. 14 on the UK Singles Chart in July 1972.
