Legs & Co. – Going In With My Eyes Open

Top of the Pops 31 March 1977: Legs & Co. dance to David Soul’s Going In With My Eyes Open. If I remember correctly, this edition of TOTP was donated from David Hamilton’s collection, after the foolish BBC wiped the original. So picture quality is below BBC4’s usual excellent standard, but at least we have […]

Legs & Co. – The Ghost Of Love

Top of the Pops, 30th Mar 1978: Legs & Co. dance to The Ghost Of Love by Tavares. Let’s see: the set decoration is meant to suggest cobwebs, like you get in long-abandoned houses where ghosts tend to hand about. The wispy cloaks are a bit like ghosts, of the white sheet variety. Lulu and […]

Legs & Co. – It’s A Love Thing

Top of the Pops, 26 March 1981: Legs & Co. dance to It’s A Love Thing by The Whispers. Legs & Co dance around and upon a clump of plinths sitting on a giant checkerboard. A nice undemanding bit of choreography to a nice, undemandingly competent disco hit of the time. I can’t seem to […]

Legs & Co – Turn The Music Up

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. Then they all point to the floor for the “Party Down” refrain. Simple, effective, entertaining. You can just feel the […]
