PLEASE DO NOT LEAVE A RATING FOR THIS PERFORMANCE, IVE ONLY INCLUDED IT FOR THE SAKE OF CONTINUITY.
I have to say i love the chemistry (maybe thats to strong a word) between Gill and singer Richard in this, they work well together. As for Rosie, well she towers over Mr Gower as the picture above shows. He was very short wasn't he.
Did i spot `five` band members on stage for Racey in the show ? I always thought they were a four piece.
I'll just say this, the ladies are obviously enjoying themselves, & are getting actively involved with Racey's performance, than just looking like spectators, dancing along to the music as Some Girls would do.
Yes this is well done. I can't pretend that Racey were or are my favourite band but they certainly perform songs which suit our ladies and the four dancers do a great job of embellishment here, especially Gill as our host has said. She really hits the right mix between beauty and comedy here
Some Dancers who gave a good time, broke all the rules, played all the fools, yeah yeah yeah they blew our minds
Doesn't Rosie sore, and I think Richard Gower had his hands full and at one point almost came eye to eye with Rosie (LOL), nice to see the reverse of Gill having to pick up Richard........just a fun song, and better than lay Your love, this track is their finest moment.
Racey are a bit of a guilty pleasure . I have to confess to having a couple of their singles on vinyl including this one.
It is nice that the girls could get involved and they seem to be enjoying themselves and enhance the whole performance.
A glimpse of the tail end of Legs & Co's TOTP tenure, dancing alongside the acts?
Although entering stage right halfway through the song, the foursome project enough stage presence to increase the pleasure of the Racey performance.
Yes, it's amusing to see Gill lift the lead singer, who also makes eye contact with Rosie's breast-plate, but the dancing performance of all four is pleasing enough. they all have a swell time and there's a lovely moment when Pauline and Lulu smile after catching each other's eyes, towards the finish.
Speaking of visual organs, white eye-shadow sales must have been high in March 1979.
Thats his showbiz height . He looks more like 5 foot to me, which equals 60 inches or 1524mm.
(incidentally, in my line of work we only use millimeters. We never talk in metres or centimetres. But quite often folk of a certain age still use the old imperial measurements, just like our American friends still do now)
Got to agree with Ryan here, we've already established that our girls are quite petite and they tower over this guy. He's five foot tops. Very peculiar height for a bloke. I think it's fair to say that girls rarely go out with a guy smaller than themselves, so in Mr Gower's case I guess most girls won't. Catchy song though and I enjoyed the girls cameo.
Those jammy sods Racey are back again, not content with getting Sue up on stage twice for their last single, they've got another four of the girls on this time, only Patti left and that's the lot! I really like this one, a catchy tune, we get to see the girls, Rosie has a shot at a bit of miming, and everyone seems to be having a great time, what's not to like?
A good feel good song. Always felt it was from the ranks of Mickie Most - something that Kenny or Mud would have released in the mid seventies. Personally I was not a fan of the song but they did give a good performance and the lead singer played well to the camera. Felt a little sorry for Rosie in this routine as she is a lot taller than the lead singer and she looks uncomfortable and grinning and bearing it. A song anyway that has stood the test of time and one that you tend to hear when you walk past an elephant's graveyard pub.
Everywhere, wherever you look, manipulation rearing it's head.
