Legs & Co – Saturday Nite

Top of the Pops 24/02/1977: Legs & Co dance to Saturday Nite by Earth Wind and Fire.

These individually-coloured dresses do seem a little too skimpy: perhaps they shrunk in the wash?

Thanks to Andeebee for the Dailymotion post.

I remember there were letters to the Radio Times complaining that this routine was “inappropriate” for a show aimed at children.

Plus ça change, eh?

This routine featured as No. 1 in Legs & Co.’s Top of the Pops Playback, Top Ten routines:

Sue: “Mary Whitehouse hated it: she actually rang in and complained – again. But it was a great number, such an iconic Free song: and Paul Rodgers – what a great voice.”

Lulu: “…we were wearing fishnet stockings, which were really sexy: but we had very big satin polka-dot knickers on as well.”

Legs & Co. – Once In A Lifetime

Legs & Co. dance to Talking Heads’ Once In A Lifetime. Top of the Pops 19/02/1981.

Probably the best record Talking Heads ever made: Legs & Co. in their art-deco sci-fi outfits are a bit overwhelmed by the video effects here: but the overall effect is quite satisfying.

From the old blog, Friday, 14 January 2011:

Here’s Legs & Co. dancing to Talking Heads’ Once in a Lifetime, in silvery sci-fi outfits.

Hi YMG, and thanks for this much better copy than the one I previously had. Easy to have been a chanteur if given the opportunity to serenade any of these lovely mademoiselle. I bet those chairs came in handy when fending of their more amorous admirers!

Just wonderful this one, gotta be in my top 5. Much better without the TOTPs 2 guff all over it.
Stunning close ups of Sue in this,she even blows us a delicate kiss. I like the way Rosie tries to get comfortable on her chair but dosent quite seem to succeed. Nice cavorting chair work from Patti also, funny faces from Pauline, big beautiful close up of Gill. Lulu kinda misses out a bit, but this is Legs & Co at there brilliant best.

A Classic with all ladies on top form, fetching costumes and a lovely lazy beat to perform their magic for us.

Legs & Co. – Take A Chance On Me

Top Of The Pops 9 February 1978:
Legs & Co dance to “Take A Chance On Me” by Abba.

From the old blog, Wednesday, 6 March 2013:

Legs & Co. dance to Abba’s Take a Chance on Me, in silver boots, black spangly leggings and fuchsia cummerbunds. From February 9th 1978, this routine takes place in a colour-coordinated fuchsia and black set dominated by arrow graphics: highly fashionable, with the late seventies post-punk mod revival just beginning to take off around then.

Come on Kid show a bit more enthusiasm. This is quite a decent ‘go’ and smashing costumes. But I think these girls need cheering up and letting their hair down.

Jesus these senoritas on the hacienda give me the cojones to demand the whole enchilada. Once again I like this restrained tension they convey. Must be my repressed grammar school upbringing coming through!

Legs & Co. – Don’t Leave Me This Way

Top of the Pops, 03 February 1977: Legs & Co. dance to Don’t Leave Me This Way by Harold Melvin and the Blue Notes

Nothing says sophisticated glamour like long white gloves and candelabras, don’t you think? Posh frocks and dangly earrings, too. Legs & Co. in classy mode, dance to a song that was also a hit for Thelma Houston around the same time: not to mention wee Jimmy Somerville’s falsetto version a few years later.

Thanks again to Andeebee for the YouTube post.

Legs & Co. – The Groove Line

TOTP February 2 1978: Legs & Co. dance to Heatwave’s The Groove Line.

Some rather skimpy outfits here: so skimpy that they’re literally held together with bits of string. But frustratingly “moody” lighting. Are the two perhaps connected? Did the producer, concerned at such revealing outfits on a Thursday early-evening “family” show, give the order to tone the lights down?

From the old blog, Wednesday, 30 March 2011:

Here’s another clip from the generous PattiforPM (thank you!). Legs & Co. dance to Heatwave’s The Groove Line. Top of the Pops February 2 1978.

Now that is my kind of groove and there’s no way I could have waited in line. Super sexy stuff.

Skimpiness abounds and good dance music this one but it always reminds me a bit of Ryan’s comments on “Disco Inferno” as the lighting and camera angles detract a little from the wild action.
