American Bandstand was the place to be in the 1960s and 1970s, and this song by the Spencer Davis Group is the perfect dance number.
When the Spencer Davis Group appeared in this 1967 episode of American Bandstand, they got everyone up and moving with their record ‘Gimme Some Lovin.’
Featuring a young Steve Winwood on organ and lead vocals, this shimmering dance classic nearly forces you from your seat.
The teenagers who were lucky enough to score an invite to the live taping rushed the dance floor as soon as that now-famous bass line dropped in.
And then when Steve Winwood starts in with his heavy B-3 organ – all bets are off. The boys and girls dance the night away to a record that never goes out of fashion.
Even hearing it now, whether, in the kitchen or the grocery store line, it is impossible to keep your feet from tapping along to the rhythm.
