Prediction time again. What routines do you think will do well during 1981. I realize this thread isn't for everyone, but i hope a few of the stalwarts, as well as others who may have took a peep into 1981 will have a go at this. Later in the year when we are all done, i will use the Legs comments score ratings to see how we did in terms of our predictions. Obviously posting later or post updating after the first couple of weeks in January would nullify you on this, so get them in before that, cheers.
In no particular order, here are my five predictions (hope i do better than last year).
Ai No Corrida--For obvious reasons. What about those costumes !!
I Aint Gonna Stand For It--This is a long standing fav of mine. Im not that much a fan of Stevie, but i really like this track. The costumes and wigs are superb, as is the lithesome and supple Patti who takes centre stage.
Jones Versus Jones--Great role playing here, lots of funny expressions on the girls faces.
Walk Right Now-- Each of the girls gets to `walk` out and swirl their hair about and shake a bit of ass in those little green shorts.
Hooked On Classics--Okay, its unusual music, but boy do Legs & Co nail this. With the party spirit in full swing theres lots to keep the viewer happy, with the robotic dancing a must see.
So how about your 5 from 81, i hope you can join in.
As is my want I've saved most of 81 to look forward to and unwrap as the year progresses. Two I have watched are the very different watery delights of Bermuda Triangle and A Rainy Night In Georgia, and I expect both to do very well in the ratings. ARNIG really really oughta result in a DOTD clean sweep, but we've said that before...
Same here, Mr Daze.
Makes absolute sense not to take an advanced look at all the dance routines to come but wait until they arrive chronologically on BBC4 throughout the year, with the routines from skipped editions viewed in the appropriate gaps. Otherwise it's like buying food for Christmas and scoffing the lot in a single day.
Thus far, I've seen about 7 from '81 so from those I'll pick the following:
I Ain't Gonna Stand For It
Can You Feel It
Ai No Corrida
Hands Up (Give Me Your Heart)
Sadly, I saw Happy Birthday and The Birdie Song a few months back and they most definitely won't make the cut. Talk about a relegated role...
It's the same for me, Daze and PD.
I have not seen any Legs & Co routines from 1981, and I am really looking forward to seeing them for the first time throughout this year. It's what makes watching the TOTPs repeats so special.
For you guys it must be like having Christmas presents, but choosing not to open them on the day itself, instead opting to open them over the space of the year. I admire you blokes in a way, but temptation would get the better of me. Im also slightly envious having B***** all to look forward to having seen the lot many times over.
'Can You Feel It' is one dance which i prefer the one by Zoo at Xmas 1981(it was removed from my YouTube so no link).
Anita is in it,so too Julie from Tight Fit,and another excellent dancer called Julie Brown who can be seen here with Wesley dancing to 'There It Is'. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9j2q5L_GI80
Ai No Corrida - I no defence
Don't Stop the Music - Kilts finally find their place
Lay All Your Love on Me - Best ever use of a Chapel
Hold on Tight - Frantic brilliance
Hands Up - Legs in the Wild West
Some Dancers who gave a good time, broke all the rules, played all the fools, yeah yeah yeah they blew our minds
