Legs & Co. – Can You Feel It

Top of The Pops, 2nd April 1981:
Legs & Co. dance to The Jacksons’ Can You Feel It.

It’s 1981, and New Romanticism is all the rage: everyone has to have a couple of puffy pirate shirts in their wardrobe, and Legs & Co., fashionable femmes all, are no exception. Here they combine their big blouses with principal-boy boots and big loose tunics for a routine with a strong pantomime feel, as they dance to the music of Michael Jackson – who’s whole life was a veritable pantomime.

From the old blog, Sunday, 27 March 2011:

This routine, Legs & Co. dancing to the Jacksons’ Can You Feel It, was first posted here ages ago by ilovelulu. Recently on the forum, Dave asked for a playable version, and PattiforPM has generously sent me a higher-quality copy of the clip. So here it is…

From TOTP, April 2 1981: the New Romantic movement, building from the late seventies, was well into the mainstream by this time: and the outfits here are based on a New Romantic fashion standard, the Pirate Look: long 17th-18th century nautical boots, long tunics and sashes over puffy shirts. Aharrr. Thanks to PattiforPM.

And well worth an upgrade. Thanks guys. Great routine and I like the freeze frames. One thought, Pauline would have looked great in this one if she had still been around.

The ladies are on great form in this one I think. I love the New Romantic outfits and the leaps and dramatic poses.
