Celluloid Bachelor #44: Teddy Pendergrass sings "Love T.K.O." on Soul Train

In rememberance of his passing, this Celluloid Bachelor post is dedicated to the late great Teddy P. "Love T.K.O." is one of his biggest hits. When I was in grad school, my best friend and I had a band that was in the process of working up what we called our Teddy Pendergrass Medley, with four songs that, taken together, chronicled the rise and fall of a relationship. "Love T.K.O" was the finale. Given that, bringing you this video of Teddy performing the song on Soul Train in 1980 seems an appropriate way to send him off.
