Legs & Co. – Shake Your Body (Down To The Ground)

Top Of The Pops 19 April 1979: Legs & Co. dance to Shake Your Body (Down To The Ground) by The Jacksons As ever, the Jacksons bring out the best in Legs & Co.: a fluid, dynamic example of Flick’s choreography, and a confident, relaxed, assured performance. Unbeatable.

Pans People – The Entertainer

Here’s a clip I first posted on the old blog in October 2014, not long before the Copyright Gestapo shut it down. Alas, the wonderful archive.org, where I’ve been digging up gems from my old posts, only have the resources to […]

Legs & Co. – Call Me

Top Of The Pops 17 April 1980: Legs & Co. dance to Call Me by Blondie. An energetic and fun performance. Suits and pork pie hats were all the rage back in 1980, thanks to the mod revival, and to the closely-related two-tone explosion from the midlands. I reckon two-tones black & white graphic style […]

Legs & Co. – Chi Mai

Top of the Pops, 16 April 1981: Legs & Co. dance to Chi Mai by Ennio Morricone. Your dad would have to be content with The Nolans and Buck Fizz (and maybe Girlschool) for his thrills on this week’s ToTP: he’s certainly wouldn’t stop reading his paper for this Legs & Co. performance as Edwardian […]

Legs & Co. – Lonely Boy

Top of the Pops, 14 April 1977: Legs & Co. dance to Lonely Boy by Andrew Gold: featuring Floid Pearce. From the old blog, Tuesday, 21 December 2010: Here’s a clip to show to anyone who makes the boring “over-literal choreography” complaint about Flick. The routine is definitely narrative, and yes, it deals with the […]

Legs & Co – Up The Hill Backwards

Top of the Pops, 9 April 1981: Legs & Co dancing to Up The Hill Backwards by David Bowie. Clothes like these dresses, fashioned from thin cheescloth, were the height of fashion back in the hippy early seventies. By 1981 the fashion for such clobber had passed, but I think it works well here, with […]
