Season Five of Soul Train premiered on August 23, 1975.

With the 1975-1976 season, Soul Train instituted a new theme: "Soul Train '75" by The Soul Train Gang. Starting with Episode 155, there is a new opening sequence: The Train is chugging from behind the Earth towards the screen, then riding down the countryside blowing colorful confetti from the smokestacks, then goes through a tunnel into a city before it goes into the studio tunnel with the dancers. This opening was also used for the first 8 episodes of the sixth season.
