Song of the Day: The Ohio Players, “Skin Tight”

The last few weeks I’ve done a lot of soul music, and there’s a lot more I want to do, so we’ll be doing it until I’m satisfied I’ve covered the genre. I don’t think anyone will mind.

The Ohio Players are from Dayton in The Buckeye State, and got started in 1959 as The Ohio Untouchables. They broke up and re-formed several times between then and the early 1970’s, when they had a hit with "Funky Worm" in 1973 (#1 R&B, #15 Hot 100). They had seven Top 40 hits between 1973 and 1976. "Skin Tight" is the title track from their 1974 album; it reached #2 on the R&B chart, #13 on the Hot 100, and #19 in Canada.
