Legs & Co. – The Ghost Of Love

Top of the Pops, 30th Mar 1978: Legs & Co. dance to The Ghost Of Love by Tavares. Let’s see: the set decoration is meant to suggest cobwebs, like you get in long-abandoned houses where ghosts tend to hand about. The wispy cloaks are a bit like ghosts, of the white sheet variety. Lulu and […]

Legs & Co – Turn The Music Up

Legs & Co. – Hot Dog

Top of the Pops 6 March 1980: Gill from Legs & Co. dances with Shakin’ Stevens as he sings Hot Dog. Not so much literal choreography, more literal set decoration. Gill spends a lot of this routine sitting on the fairly unconvincing “Hot Dog” stand, only occasionally jumping off to join Shaky for a dance. […]

Top of the Pops, 5th March 1981: Legs & Co. dance to Jones Versus Jones by Kool & the Gang From the old blog, Thursday, 17 February 2011: Here’s a Legs & Co. routine that’s a sublime mixture of silly and strange: Lulu, Patti & Pauline are in drag, in short-trousered suits and fedoras, looking […]
