Flick Colby’s Ruby Flipper – Games People Play

Lena’s Music, 1 August 1979: Flick Colby’s Ruby Flipper dance while Lena Martell sings Games People Play.

Thanks again to Andeebee for the youtube post.

From the old blog, Saturday, 7 January 2012

My thanks once again go to PattiforPM, who has sent me another Ruby Flipper clip from Lena Martell’s TV show.

In this clip, Lena sings Joe South’s Country classic Games People Play, while the Flipsters dance dressed as arguing, petulant kids.

Well it’s not complex or graceful but quite fun and the ladies look cute I think. I always imagine Flick writing these simple routines on the back of a napkin in some London cafe. Two comments; short boy-shorts are one of the things I don’t miss from the 70s and if that guy [?David] doesn’t start treating Patti with a little more respect I’m gonna thump him.

Well for a second i thought that Patti and David might be on for a bit of a snog in this one,LOL.
No i thought of the 3 weve had so far, this is the weakest to date. Its just like their going through the motions, could be Ms Martells robotic singing style that leads me to this opinion.
You know what, im kinda glad Sue sat these dances out. On saying that, its a great thrill to see these lost gems and i thank P4PM and YMG for giving us that opportunity.

A little more camera time on Goldilocks would have been nice while one of those guys looks like he’s earned himself a high kick!
