Top of the Pops, 22nd March 1979: Legs & Co dance to Turn The Music Up by Players Association. Hooray for literal choreography. Legs & Co. “turn the music up” on their giant radio dial.

Top of the Pops 15/03/1979: Legs & Co. dance to I Want Your Love by Chic. From the old blog, Thursday, 19 June 2014: Chic numbers always seem to me to bring out the best in Flick’s choreography, and this one follows that pattern. A nice contrast between the cool detached formality of the big […]
