Happy TUNEBACK TUESDAY!! I feel like we need a promise of a better life for all. Today I’m tuning it back to “O-o-h Child” by The Five Stairsteps.
ORIGINAL RELEASE DATE: April 1970
TRIVIA: Included on the band’s The Stairsteps album from 1970, it has become the Stairsteps’ signature song and has inspired more than twenty covers since its release.
The lyrics tell the listener that “things are gonna get easier” in times of strife. The song’s uplifting message helped it to become popular among pop and rhythm and blues audiences when it was released.
See you next Tuesday!
