Legs & Co. – Please Don’t Go

Top of the Pops, 10th January 1980: Legs & Co. dance to Please Don’t Go by KC & the Sunshine Band.

A treat for Gill fans, as she gets a couple of spotlights here.

Everyone does well keeping the melancholy atmosphere of this sad ballet going, even though somebody has left the studio door open and that January breeze is fair whipping up.

From the old blog, Friday, 11 May 2012

The embedded video on my previous post of this routine seem to be broken: and since PattiforPM Suefan (thanks!) has sent me a better quality version of the same routine, I thought it deserved a new post. So here are Legs & Co. dancing to KC & the Sunshine Band’s Please Don’t Go.

Yes I agree with Ryan regarding Gill, she is stunning in this. I like the song too, I don’t recall it at the time (too young) but I remember the KWS dance version from 1992 very well.

Legs & Co. – Lonely Together

Top Of The Pops 8 January 1981: Legs & Co dance to Lonely Together by Barry Manilow.

Legs & Co. in a sombre mood, dancing to this slow ballad, from the Sultan of Soppy Songs. I’ll refrain from the usual cheap shots that usually accompany any mention of Mr. Manilow. After all, anyone who give our favourite dancers an excuse to splash around in Bikinis deserves our respect and gratitude.

Update: Better quality version from BBC4 repeat.

Pan’s People – Itchycoo Park

Top of the Pops, 8 January 1976:
Pan’s People dance to Itchycoo Park by The Small Faces.

Late period Pan’s People relive the sixties dancing to a Small Faces classic, around a giant mushroom, wearing groovy crocheted shawls. Topped and tailed with Noel Edmonds demonstrating that he truly was the TOTP Bad Pun Champion.

Thanks top Andeebee for the YouTube post (and to Vintage Video who supplied him with the clip).

Legs & Co. – Let’s Have a Quiet Night In

Top of the Pops 5 January 1978:
Legs & Co. dance to Let’s Have a Quiet Night In by David Soul.

An incomplete compliment of Legs & Co. in slinky black silk nighties. Obviously Lulu is such a party animal that she’d never agree to a quiet night in like this: she’s probably down the pub, drinking beer and playing pinball in her Roadrunner Twice outfit.

From the old blog, Wednesday, 23 March 2011:

Legs & Co in black nighties, dancing to David Soul’s Let’s Have a Quiet Night In, on the biggest bed in the world.

Only the biggest and the best for the girls. Such a shame Lulu had forgotten her nightie.

Yes a nice bedroom scene this one although I’m sure most of us wouldn’t sleep a wink in this environment

Legs & Co. – My feet keep Dancin’

Top of the Pops 3rd of January 1980: Legs & Co. dance to Chic’s My feet keep Dancin’.

It’s Super Spandex Time, as Legs & Co. (minus Sue) dance in these super slinky pastel-shaded outfits. I love their crazy footwear too.

Pan’s People – Don’t Let the Sun Go Down On Me

Elton John’s Don’t let the Sun go Down on Me was at the very beginning of my time working with PP and Flick gave me a long, quite balletic/contemporary style solo for the verse…..I have never been so nervous as I was then in my whole life , I remember shaking like a leaf before, during and after the routine. The other ladies were so supportive and kind to me….it sure helped ! Sadly, I believe that number has been wiped….but a big memory for me as my first official solo with PP.
Sue Menhenick, 2011

Well, thanks to a generous christmas gift from Sue and forum regular PansLegs, we now have a partial version of this long lost routine to enjoy:

Merry Christmas folks, and thanks again to Sue and Panlegs for this treat.

Pan’s People – Help Me Make it Through the Night

TOTP 02 January 1975: Pan’s People dance to John Holt’s Help Me Make it Through the Night.

From the old blog: Wednesday, 2 September 2009:

Jimmy Saville and a rather stupid Australian sailor with a big proverbial ginger beard introduce Pan’s People dancing to John Holt’s Help Me Make it Through the Night: a Kris Kristofferson song.

Pan’s People – Green River

Top of the Pops 1st January 1970. A marvellous start to the seventies, as Pan’s People dance to Creedence Clearwater Revival’s Green River.

From the old blog, Friday, 7 September 2012

Pan’s People dance to Creedence Clearwater Revival’s Green River. I posted a low-quality version of this performance last year, and hoped against hope that someone somewhere would come forward with a better version. Well, hallelujah! Someone just posted this much better version on YouTube. Thanks gibb1962, whoever you are!

It’s clearly a rehearsal performance, not the broadcast one. But who cares: and check out those silver gogo boots! Woohoo!

As I intimated on my Louise Compilation comment, this is my favourite of Flick’s early ‘Go-go’ routines. It is just wonderful – combining a great song with some real movement. Also, the girls really put some effort in, despite it being (I think) a rehearsal take? Great to see Andi get it wrong on a couple of occasions yet pick it up instantly.

…what a powerhouse performance this is. Louise is just a wild woman. When Andi stops it’s like she can’t take any more G-force and has to take a break. Great stuff
