SUMMARY: Gets better on every watch.

CHAMPAGNE: I reckon ive counted about 20 contenders for this, but i quite like the Pauline & Rosie thing when they bob up and down facing each other.

SPOTTED: Ah what the heck, sometimes ya have to be cruel. Patti having an uncharacteristic lapse of concentration during the turn at the end of the line. 1.33 mins on Doc's link.

The Rubberband Man
SUMMARY: Dance, Dance, Dance is the name of the song, and that's precisely what Legs & Co do

CHAMPAGNE: The camera's run down the line at the start with the girls turning in sequence and providing a beaming smile

SPOTTED: At the start, when the camera runs down the line it centres on everyone, but when the camera gets to Pauline, it just travels a little too far and nearly misses getting her in shot.

Everything'sRosie
SUMMARY: Colourful and energetic, and the first of a very fruitful relationship Legs had with Chic.

CHAMPAGNE: When Sue dances and Rosie and Lulu step in and out of shot either side of her at 1.52.

SPOTTED: Pauline's fluffy upper-arm adornment seems to have slipped down to her elbow.

SUMMARY: Box-ticker Dance with Action, Colour, Close-Ups and Skimpiness

CHAMPAGNE: Just to balance the scales, a sparkling wine for Patti's wiggle-pout-smile at 1:10

SPOTTED: Beauty in abundance
Some Dancers who gave a good time, broke all the rules, played all the fools, yeah yeah yeah they blew our minds

It messes up what would have made a good 'champagne moment', had the camera caught the normal smiley Pauline it would have been a lot more memorable.

SUMMARY: Chick and Legs & Co - A match made in heaven - Yowsah Yowsah Yowsah

CHAMPAGNE: There are several great moments but I will pick the final 10 seconds or so.

SPOTTED: I reckon the shapes hanging down from the ceiling inspired Sony when they were designing their PlayStation gamepads.

Without Legs & Co, there would be no show!

SUMMARY: Classic Legs & Co and Chic, go on girls, shake those tail feathers!

CHAMPAGNE: Like some of the others, the camera going along the line at the beginning.

SPOTTED: Nothing to do with the dance, but i was just wondering at what point does Tony Blackburn realise the name of the band isn't actually Chick?
