This cover by Lake Street Dive of The Jackson Five’s, “I Want You Back” is a joy to listen to and watch, taking the form of an impromptu Washington Square Park style jam session (though this was filmed in Boston). As a native New Yorker, this melody is, perhaps unfairly, associated with Biggie Smalls’, “Give Me One More Chance” in my mind. Nonetheless, this cover demonstrates the depth of influence exerted by the heartwarming classics of The Jackson Five, tying a common thread through the evolution of pop music that stretches over 40 years.
