Legs & Co. – Let’s Have a Quiet Night In

Top of the Pops 5 January 1978: Legs & Co. dance to Let’s Have a Quiet Night In by David Soul. An incomplete compliment of Legs & Co. in slinky black silk nighties. Obviously Lulu is such a party animal that she’d never agree to a quiet night in like this: she’s probably down the […]

Legs & Co. – My feet keep Dancin’

Top of the Pops 3rd of January 1980: Legs & Co. dance to Chic’s My feet keep Dancin’. It’s Super Spandex Time, as Legs & Co. (minus Sue) dance in these super slinky pastel-shaded outfits. I love their crazy footwear too.

Pan’s People – Don’t Let the Sun Go Down On Me

Elton John’s Don’t let the Sun go Down on Me was at the very beginning of my time working with PP and Flick gave me a long, quite balletic/contemporary style solo for the verse…..I have never been so nervous as I was then in my whole life , I remember shaking like a leaf before, […]

TOTP 02 January 1975: Pan’s People dance to John Holt’s Help Me Make it Through the Night. From the old blog: Wednesday, 2 September 2009: Jimmy Saville and a rather stupid Australian sailor with a big proverbial ginger beard introduce Pan’s People dancing to John Holt’s Help Me Make it Through the Night: a Kris […]

Pan’s People – Green River

Top of the Pops 1st January 1970. A marvellous start to the seventies, as Pan’s People dance to Creedence Clearwater Revival’s Green River. From the old blog, Friday, 7 September 2012 Pan’s People dance to Creedence Clearwater Revival’s Green River. I posted a low-quality version of this performance last year, and hoped against hope that […]

Pan’s People – In Dulce Jubilo

Top of the Pops, 1 January 1976: Pan’s People dance to Mike Oldfield’s In Dulce Jubilo A suitably folksy routine, since this Mike Oldfield number is a traditional folk tune electrified. Plenty of gusto.

Pan’s People – Jeepster

Top of the Pops, 30 December 1971: Pan’s People dance to Jeepster by T-Rex. I’ve got two different versions of this performance. The first (Above) is a good quality version from TOTP2, marred with their usual “interesting” comments graphics. The second is a time-coded version including brief interviews with Pan’s People and Ed “Stewpot” Stewart, […]

Pan’s People – Stoney End

Top of the Pops, 30 December 1971: Pan’s People dance to Stoney End by Barbara Streisand. From their famous visit to HMS Triumph in 1971, in Momabsa. Of course if we tried to repeat this today, now that we’re sharing aircraft carriers with France, Pan’s People would have to share the ship with Les Claudettes. […]

From Digging the Dancing Queens, 1994: Flick Colby: “She came out of this package and she just looked adorable: and then we did the worst number I’ve every seen in my life: and we had these big lumpy […]
