                       O-o-h Child

"O-o-h Child" is a 1970 single recorded and released by Chicago soul family group the Five Stairsteps, who released it on the Buddah label. Written by Stan Vincent and 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 young children that "things are gonna get easier" in times of strife. The song’s uplifting message helped the song to become popular among pop and rhythm and blues audiences when it was released. This was the Stairsteps’ only single to reach the top ten on the Billboard Hot 100 peaking at number eight on that chart while peaking at number fourteen on the R&B chart. It would be their last R&B top 40 (they had several top 40 R&B hits in the 1960s) until 1976’s "From Us to You". The song is ranked #392 on the Rolling Stone magazine’s list of The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.

Here is the original version by The Five Stairsteps on Soultrain.

Laura Nyro also covered the song and in recognition of her recent induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, here is a mix of her doing I’m So Proud, Dedicated to The One I Love, La La Means I Love You, Up on The Roof, It’s Gonna Take A Miracle, and Aint No Mountain High Enough
