The Jacksons version

"Show You the Way to Go" became a hit for The Jacksons, (formerly known as "The Jackson 5") after their departure from Motown nearly two years prior. The move made it easy for the brothers to write and produce their own material. They spent a couple of years under the production and direction of Gamble and Huff and was signed to Philadelphia International Records. This was one of the songs that the producers wrote for the brothers.

This song was released after "Enjoy Yourself," released a year earlier. Michael sang lead and background vocals. Marlon Jackson, and the rest of the brothers (with Randy replacing Jermaine) had backup parts. The song reached No. 6 US Billboard R&B chart, No. 28 US Billboard Hot 100 and No. 1 on the UK Singles Chart.[1] After recording the album Goin' Places in 1977, The Jacksons left Philadelphia International for Epic.

The single's B-side was "Blues Away", which was the first song Michael Jackson wrote entirely himself.
