SPOTTED: Patti missed a kick about 20 seconds from the end.
No.1: A big favourite of mine when it was released. Great video in the days before most acts had worked the format out. I still enjoy hearing it now, A Ha!
Comments for the following please
SUMMARY: A comment about the dance, anything you want to say.
CHAMPAGNE: Favorite moment from the routine.
SPOTTED: See anything unusual in the routine?
No.1: A comment on the chart topper.
(you don't have to do all sections if you don't want to)
#Blue is the colour,
Moody is their aim,
they are all together,
and dancing is their game#.
CHAMPAGNE: No question, the Lulu/Sue shimmy early doors.
SPOTTED: Apart from it going slightly awry i the final few moments or so, i reckon Sue peeled away at the beginning about a second to early. Or could that just be me with my `screen-cap head` on wishing she had hung around a bit longer to get a good shot of her and Rosie.
Howler alert! Abba don't actually go to No.1 for another two weeks!
I've got Paul Gambaccini to thank for the correction. (It's one of the featured years on this weeks Pick of the Pops, which is still available on IPlayer Radio).
Thinking back to 1977 and this song, I can remember it's release being a news item on the lunchtime Newsbeat. I wrote down the title to remind me to look for it in Woolworths, it sticks in my mind because in my excitement I forgot to use the K in Knowing. Strangely I thought it came in at No.4 before going to No.1, on investigation it appears I would make as good a Yewtree witness as Tony Blackburn as it's climb was actually 48, 18, 7, 2, 2, 1. I did buy the record and I think I still have it somewhere. It appears I may have my 7's and 4's confused You Honour!
I hope you know that I am not being critical at all Doc. I really like the structure of these Threads as I've said before and if you hadn't spotted this small gaffe yourself I wouldn't have figured it out in a million years
Some Dancers who gave a good time, broke all the rules, played all the fools, yeah yeah yeah they blew our minds
SUMMARY: Rapidly released 'Suspicion' follow up sees Elvis continue a good run of form, Legs and Co deliver a shiny, exuberant skirt swisher, always a good watch despite its brevity.
CHAMPAGNE: All of it, well it is only short
SPOTTED: Nothing particularly, seems like a fairly even amount of camera time for all.
♥♥♥♥ Cherry, Louise, Patti and Ruth Alliance ♥♥♥♥. If there's a cure for this I don't want it.
SUMMARY: It starts off well but the second half of the routine seems weaker so the end result is only average.
CHAMPAGNE: My champagne goes to the costume designer. Amongst the best costumes that 'Legs' ever wore.
SPOTTED: Nothing in particular
No.2: Not all that keen. However the song makes me want to raise my arms and shout out "Ar Harr" in true Alan Partridge style.
