Legs & Co. – Jazz Carnival

Top of the Pops, 31 January 1980: Legs & Co. dance to Jazz Carnival by Azymuth (Who they?) What a great routine: the costumes, both daft and desirable, amusing and alluring, silly and sensual. Rosie always relishes the chance to lark about, and Gill rises to the occasion when her wolf throttles Rosie’s rabbit. And […]

Top of the Pops, 31 January 1974: Pans People dance to The Love I Lost by harold Melvin and the Blue Notes. My apologies for the poor quality of this recording. It’s the best I could find, I’m afraid.

Legs & Co. – It’s My Turn

Top of the Pops, 29 January 1981: Legs & Co. dance to It’s My Turn by Diana Ross All looking magnificently moody in this piece, as each dancer takes a turn in the spotlight in their posh frock. I reckon Sue’s outfit is the one that sets this clip firmly in the eighties. From the […]

Legs & Co. – Cool Meditation

Top Of The Pops 25 January 1979: Legs & Co. dance to Cool Meditation by Third World. Who needs posh frocks? Legs & Co. prove they can look good in their gym kits. All they need is a netball and some big bibs with letters on. Wait, you need seven for a netball team, so […]

Legs & Co. – Spirits (Having Flown)

Top of The Pops 24 January 1980: Legs & Co. dance to the Bee Gees’ Spirits (Having Flown). Back in those days, as an Angry(ish) Young Punk, The Bee Gees were everything I dispised. Thirty-five years later I’m still no fan, but I can’t work up all that anger any more. But when it comes […]
