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 – In Dulce Jubilo

Top of the Pops, 1 January 1976: Pan’s People dance to Mike Oldfield’s In Dulce Jubilo

A suitably folksy routine, since this Mike Oldfield number is a traditional folk tune electrified. Plenty of gusto.

Legs & Co. – Some Girls Compilation

From December 31 2014:

Here’s a special New Year’s Present from none other than Sue Menhenick. From her personal collection, it’s a different edit of the Christmas Some Girls video compilation we’ve seen already. In this version, there’s a lot less Racey and a lot more Legs & Co. The general picture quality is a considerable improvement too.

Thanks to Sue for the kind gift, and for the support and encouragement she’s given to the OFTD forum. And a happy new year to everyone!

Legs & Co. dance to Gloria Gaynor’s “I Will Survive”.

Looking moody in glamorous green sequinned outfits, Gill, Lulu, Pauline, Rosemary and Sue dance upstairs, as Patti roller-skates around the skinny tinsel Christmas tree downstairs.

Pan’s people – I Can’t Give You Anything

Top of the Pops Christmas Day Special, 25 December 1975:
Pan’s people dance to the Stylistics’ I Can’t Give You Anything

A classic christmas-themed routine, as Pan’s People perform in giant ribbon-bow outfits on a giant wrapped christmas present. Plenty of Busby Berkeley style birds-eye view shots.

From the old blog, Saturday, 9 May 2009:

Pan’s People on the Top of the Pops 1975 Christmas Special, dancing to the Stylistics’ I Can’t Give You Anything. With a cheesy introduction from Noel Edmunds and Tony Blackburn.

Pan’s People – Barbados

Top of the Pops Day-before-Christmas-Eve Special, 23 December 1975: Pan’s People dance to Barbados by Typically Tropical.

Pan’s People in a typical wintery landscape, complete with snowman and TV studio fake snow, shivering in their big fur coats as they try to keep warm. But how will they represent the tropical beaches, sunshine and heat that the song portrays so vividly? What surprising technique will they use to represent the hot summer sun of Barbados?

Legs & Co. dance to I Wish by Stevie Wonder.

Thanks to panspeople.com for the youtube post.

From the old blog, Wednesday, 25 May 2011

Thanks to Bucksby, who has sent me this Legs & Co routine, one of the many posted on YouTube by nyrainbow4. Legs & Co. in drag, as Edwardian bankers, dancing to Stevie Wonder’s I Wish. With a shadow background appearance, unmmistakably by Floyd.

Well I wish they had not been asked to dress in such a silly costume. This warrants further censure on the FC CV. It’s not another Smurf moment but it isn’t far away.

Suefan said:

Thanks guys, I think.
I suppose this is meant as a fun routine but, call me old fashioned, it doesn’t work for me. It’s not as bad as those Smurfs (Well, what could be?) but that is about the best that can be said for it.

Not my fave either but maybe we’re being a bit hard on our Goddesses’ Choreographer here. It is rather fun and, darn it all to hell, these girls are hot even in suits

Legs & Co. – Love’s Unkind

TOTP, 22 December 1977: Legs & Co. dance to Donna Summer’s Love’s Unkind.

From the old blog, Friday, 18 November 2011:

Here’s another update to an old, non-embedded clip post. This time, Legs & Co. dance to Donna Summer’s Love’s Unkind. Lots of classic literal interpretation here. I would observe that the set decor seems to have an “Homage to Tetris” theme, except I’m pretty sure this clip predates the addictive Russian game by a few years. So Tetris is, in fact, a tribute to this dance routine! Or something. Yay!

Well it must be those hats as whenever I watch this routine I think of Bertie Bassetts liquorice allsorts. Good to see Pauline and Rosie getting a little more camera time than is the norm but there’s still only one little sweetie for me.

Yes the ladies are rather like “candies” in this one, as we would say on this side of the Atlantic. Bright and sweet and I can’t let this one go without mentioning Patti hitting the 300 mark on the Blog. Congratulations

Thanks for posting this YMG, quite simply my favourite Legs & Co routine ever. Those pink and yellow outfits do it for me, love the dance moves also.
