Legs & Co. – Bankrobber

Top of the Pops, 21 August 1980: Legs & Co dance to Bankrobber by The Clash.

Each time I post a performance featuring Anita I’m more and more […]

Pan’s People – You Make Me Feel Brand New

Top of the Pops 15th August 1974: Pan’s People dance to You Make Me Feel Brand New by¬†The¬†Stylistics. From a show specially presented by The Osmonds. Pan’s People are so stunning in these lovely backless frocks, it’s hardly surprising that they even tempt goody two-shoes Donnie into impure thoughts. A tip of the hat to […]

Classically glamourous posh black sequinned frocks for our dancers here: which is entirely apt for this sophisticated pop gem, performed by the Three Degrees – who were themselves no strangers to classy showbiz couture. From […]
