On the Jackson 5 album titled “ABC,” there is a cute song rarely heard called “2-4-6-8,” released in 1970. It is strange that I don’t remember hearing this one the radio. Maybe it’s because I was only 3 years old when this song came out? But usually you’d continue to hear a major artist’s song off and on at least 3 years once it’s been on the charts. So even at age 6 I’d think I would remember. Not sure… The first time I heard this song, was actually when I was watching their cartoon special called “The Jackson 5ive.” I was so tickled, because it was my first time ever watching a cartoon character really dance. I believe this was the first time I ever saw a “Black” cartoon; and “Fat Albert came soon after. “The Jackson 5ive” was a fun cartoon where all the Jackson characters get in to all kinds of mischief. There were many other big hits from this album such as “I Found That Girl,” “ABC,” “The Love You Save,” and finally “I Don’t Know Why I Love You,” which was originally written and performed by the legendary Stevie Wonder.
