3. The Jackson 5 - G.I.T.: Get It Together - 1973

This near-perfectly named album -- couldn't they have gone the extra step and made it a recursive acronym? -- contains "Dancing Machine," their first big hit featuring the pubescent version of Michael Jackson.

Of course, their next album, Dancing Machine, also contains "Dancing Machine," their first big hit featuring the pubescent version of Michael Jackson, probably on account of an especially bitter Motown winter that had killed much of that year's crop of disco songs.
