Pans People – Barbados

Top of the Pops, 24 July 1975:
Pans People dance to “Barbados” by Typically Tropical.

A surprise Summer number one for Typically Tropical: and here they are on Top of the Pops. The producers have decide to mix in some clips from Pan’s People’s performance to the song on the previous week’s episode. And a good thing too, since that 17 July 1975 episode has since been wiped, and these fragments are all that remain: in the BBC’s archive, anyway.

So we should be grateful, I suppose. And yet…

It’s very nice to see Pan’s People in their smart stewardess uniforms: it’s even nicer to see them in their bikinis. But what happens in between? How do they get from one to the other? Tragically, we’ll never know. So we’ll just have to use our imaginations, I suppose.

How intriguing: how frustrating.
