Pan’s People – Another Saturday Night

Here’s another rarity: a Pan’s People TOTP routine that’s new to this blog: they dance to Cat Stevens’ hit cover of Sam Cooke’s Another Saturday Night, 13 September 1974.

It’s takes a lot of chutzpah to cover a Sam Cooke song: your performance will always be compared with the master’s original. But Cat Stevens just about gets away with it.

The dancers’ performances and outfits are surprisingly jolly, given the sad edge to the lyrics subject matter: but I’m not complaining: it’s always nice to see them get the chance to goof around a little.

Many thanks to my anonymous donor for this excellent routine.
