Legs & Co. – You’ll Never Get to Heaven (If You Break My Heart)

Top of the Pops, 16 December 1976: Legs & Co. dance to The Stylistics’
You’ll Never Get to Heaven (If You Break My Heart).

At last! It’s been an awfully long time since I had anything genuinely new to post here. But thanks to an anonymous donor, I’ve got this never-before-seen-here performance to share.

And what a routine! Full of that literal choreography which mean-spirited detractors complain about, but which I enjoy: lots of finger pointing (and wagging) going on, and indeed the outfits and setting are all part of that literal mood.

It’s not the first time we’ve seen our girls dressed as angels. though: back in July of that year, Ruby Flipper danced to Tavares’ Heaven Must Be Missing An Angel. in similar outfits. Except now their wings have grown bigger, and the dresses shorter: and their halos, flippety flopping about on a single wire back in July, now have a much firmer support structure.

Thanks again to my generous donor for restoring this long-lost treasure to us.
