Legs & Co. – You Gave Me Love

Top of the Pops, 29 May 1980:
Legs & Co. dance to Crown Heights Affair’s You Gave Me Love.

From the old blog, Thursday 3 March 2011:

Working in the days before promotional videos became ubiquitous, Legs & Co. were most often called upon to work with American dance music, where the artists were not usually available to perform on TOTP. Here’s an example: Crown Heights Affair’s You Gave Me Love.

Thanks to Suefan & PattiforPM, both of whom sent me this clip.

A wonderful dance routine, that triggers the old memory bank. Complimented by a brilliant track too.

Those frocks are top notch – would they have worked with some ‘big hair’ I wonder.

Totally agree Jez, the girls look absolutely priceless in their party frocks and what heads you’d turn if you brought any one of them to the ball

Got to say when i taped the repeat on UK Gold some years ago of this edition of TOTP, they left this performance out: only showed the theme from mash routine that was number one that week, and hand on my heart i don’t think i’ve seen the girls looking so good as this on any other routines. Love all their hairstyles on this one, love to see their hair tied up like this and the costumes they are wearing. Absolute stunners they are on this routine
