I will leave the Martini puns to others. Well here we have the lovely Gill and Huggy Bear lookalike Danny Williams. Gills dancing easy in her her `Moody Blue` dress, and but performing what seems to be the same dance as `Got To Give It Up`. Not much i can say about this one, but Gill did okay, so its a 7 from me.
Gill looks lovely and moves with grace and these blue dresses remain some of my favorite items in the Legs wardrobe. The song OTOH is super-bland and Gill is only visible half the time and the moves are a little recycled so I feel unable to exceed 6/10
Some Dancers who gave a good time, broke all the rules, played all the fools, yeah yeah yeah they blew our minds
Am I the only person who didn't know Dancin' Easythe song that accompanies this dance routine was used in a Martini TV ad. campaign?
Anyways, down to the business, a solo dance routine for Gillian, insomuch as she's the only dancer on stage, wearing her blue dress for the third time on TOTPs, but Danny Williams is actually performing Dancin' Easy on stage with Gillian gently sachaying around him in circles, I think this works quite well, what wish the 'nice & slow' nature of the song!
Do I really have to rate this? Oh well, the song is so so, the singer, err, ... let's talk about Gill then: lovely, just lovely! But we don't see enough of her. Instead this guy always seems to get in the way.
Although I've recently discovered my soft spot for Gill, there just isn't much to rate here, sorry just 6 /10 from me.
This song is so redolent of seventies' faux sophistication I almost want to start my own business building conservatories, join a country club, and aspire to own a yacht by the end of the decade. But anyhow, lovely Gill. Dancin' easy on the eye. Let's be honest, she's there purely for decoration. The 'Dancin'' purely an excuse for a Leg I'd say! It's not the kind of song where she can really advertise her skills, and she's further hindered with her hands tied to dress swishing. She looks stunning in it though and does pretty much as well as she can with this limited opportunity. So it's no reflection on her that I'm giving 5/10 for her efforts adorning a performance of outdated schmaltz.
Hmmm. Desperately trying to think of something positive to say about this. Gill looks great and does as well as she can, maybe she could have done with a colleague with her, just to improve the overall effect. I have to say that the song does nothing for me, and we spend too long focusing on the singer rather than the dancer for my liking. Also certain members of the audience really irritate me, as they seem more interested in what is happening behind them than in front of them, which I think is quite disrespectful to the performers. I think 5 out of 10 is as high as I can go, but no criticism at all of Gill.
Gill makes a fine effort moving along to Dancin’ Easy with Danny Williams. Hopefully copious amounts of Martini had been consumed beforehand so no one can remember quite why they asked her to do this the following day. 6/10
