YOU'LL NEVER FIND ANOTHER LOVE LIKE MINE

PattiForPM
This post was updated on .
 You’ll Never Find Another Love Like Mine is a song written by Gamble and Huff (the Philadelphia boys) and performed by Lou Rawls.  It reached #2 in the Billboard Hot 100 chart  and more recently has been covered by Canadian crooner Michael Buble. The song has been in one of the Ice Age movies and was danced as a Rumba in Season 7 of Dancing with the Stars.  It was Lou’s biggest Single but he was a truly illustrious chap who could count providing carton voices in Garfield, appearing in the first season of Sesame Street, several Budweiser Adverts and, surely the pinnacle, a cameo on Baywatch in his portfolio.  Seriously though the guy hung out with the greats like Sam Cooke and was described by no less a singer than Ol Blue Eyes himself as having “the silkiest chops in the singing game.” He was a three time Grammy Winner and opened for the Beatles in Cincinatti in 1966.  Latterly Lou became something of a US National Anthem specialist, performing at several World Series Baseball games as well as a Mohammed Ali World title fight with Earnie Shavers in 1977.  Sadly Lou died in 2006.

 This Flipper performance is one I like very much for the most part.  I love the Phil and Cherry relationship issues and they play their parts quite beautifully.  Phil in his Silver-Grey V for Vendetta outfit looks very dapper and his temporary rejection of Cherry (while completely unbelievable to me) is just perfect.  Cherry, looking as good as anyone ever has in a shawl, of course entices him back and their subsequent spin is really quite marvelous.  The three ladies with their magic blue ostrich feathers are quite divine as well and they are a constant temptation for the stop-framers amongst us and provide a lovely backdrop for the theme couple.  Floid on the other hand does well but his (?)Ringmaster character just doesn’t seem to work for me and isn’t up to the standard of the other performers.  Not sure I’m being totally fair to Floid as I seem to have criticized him a bit lately and I wonder if it is as much the roles he is given but I’ll be interested to hear other’s views on this.  Anyway I’m giving this performance 8.75/10  and after much heart-searching I’m using my split vote for DotD (did I mention this is unique to the RF Thread?!) and give Dotd equally to  Phil and Cherry.  Please let me hear your views friends

Flick certainly seems to have let her imagination go to town with the staging of this one.  Perhaps gaucho Phil gets briefly distracted by the three fan dancers, and who can blame him, but senorita Cherry does a superb job winning back his affection.  Just as well though that the routine did not call for anything more expansive from Sue, Patti and Lulu, as space atop that podium seems to be at a premium.  And I wonder how they all got down once the dance was over!?

PS.  One could get right jealous of that Phil fellow.  Not only did he get to trip the light fantastic with Sue in HOMS but here he is again, the jammy blighter, coming over all moody with Cherry :)

PPS.  An 8.5 for this one with Cherry as the Dotd.

This routine's basically a Cherry & Phil show, as they look like they're auditioning for Come Dancing, the other dancers, are perched on two plinths, Lulu, Sue, & Patti, one, & Floid on the other one, looking rather akin to simply being back-drops on the stage, whilest performing a few dance moves, that their more limited 'floor' space allows.

7/10

DotD:-

Cherry

As much as the three feathered girls look adorable, this really should and would have worked far better as a duet between Phillip and the delectable Cherry. Floid looks about 12 years of age dressed in his costume and once again is demoted to the fall guy as Phil gets star billing and rightly so.

For my rating im going for a steady `7.5 out of 10`.

For DOTD, well im not as free and liberated as the host on Ruby Flipper, i don't buy into equal shares thing. So its either Cherry or Phil. To me `Phillip' was the stand out dancer in this routine and he gets my vote.

This routine is dominated by two dancers from start to end. We have Phil as a Rudolph Valentino look like in one of his films. And the beautiful Cherry in a shawl dress and blue flower in her long black hair. Behind them are two large plinths. On one his a young looking Floid in a silver top and tails with cane. On the next larger plinth is Sue, Patti and Lulu with large blue ostrich feathered fans, doing a peekaboo fan dance. The main two dancers Cherry and Phil doing ballroom dance movement. To a good track " You'll Never Find Another Love Like Mine ".

The score for this routine would have to be 7 out of 10.

The Dotd will have to go to Phil.

I’m trying my best to enjoy the way this routine has been structured but it’s just not getting off the ground floor for me. Good track by old smooth voiced Lou which is made for our dancing duet to get on with and let the other girls and boys stand down this time. 7/10 Dotd Cherry (I’m never going to vote for one of these fellows)

Interesting and thanks for the input lads.  This one seems a little less popular than I had thought, except for ADB's mark that is.  I hadn't considered it as a duet without the feathers and the ringmaster but I'm sure it would have been very good.  I would hate to lose Patti, Sue and Lulu under any circumstances though and they do handle these feathers with fiendish cleverness.  Now Mac I see your difficulty voting against the four lovely ladies but I don't think you should rule out Phil, Floid or Gavin playing a blinder one day!  Come on everyone else please enter this debate

I hadn't heard of this Loo Rolls (says he despite lack of Northern authenticity, unlike JS) but he was clearly an illustrious bloke Stateside. With his old-fashioned song and the costumes the routine has a classic Broadway feel. It's essentially a duet with living ornaments. Our three lovelies with blue ostrich feathers make an agreeable distraction and I approve of their presence. I'm not sure about Floid though. He does look very young, stuck out on a limb overlooking the love-birds like a vaudevillian page-boy. I also feel that I seem to have been a bit hard on him lately, but I think most criticism is down to the roles he was given rather than deficiencies in his performances.

Phil and Cherry are superb. He looks quite the dashing matinee idol and she is exquisite. There's a touch of arrogance to Phil's improbable rejection of Cherry, but I guess it was in the script and he does it very well. I naturally gravitate heavily towards the girls, but it's exceeding difficult to split the two principals for DOTD here. And as I've already played my shared DOTD Joker and Stuart Hall isn't available to cadge another from, that isn't an option. So as Phil is the only Flipper I haven't awarded an outright DOTD to yet he gets my nomination by a half nod.

Very well executed but one that the generation before us would appreciate more.  7.75/10

It's a great routine, but as there's three distinct parts happening simultaneously, it verges on the chasm of being too overcrowded.

I'll stick my neck out and say that Floid's role is executed wonderfully, and he doesn't make a false step; but he does slightly seem like a spare cog in the wheel here. For some reason, the Sue/Lulu (who looks so young here)/Patti showgirl part works more for me as an accompaniment to the main routine.

Which is performed beautifully by Phil and Cherry - infused with Latin passion and faultlessly performed. It's believable in conveying the various facets of romance and it absolutely matches the story of the lyrics. The lifts and spins are divine. The only slight niggle is the colour of their outfits - I know it matches the scenery, but it seems colourless compared to the movement between the couple.

DotD: This one goes to Phil

Score: 9

Great philly-soul track by Lou Rawls which always brings back memories of the hot summer of 1976. But I'm quite underwhelmed by the Ruby Flipper routine unfortunately, which could have been much more. In my opinion, the three different dances happening at the same time are far from being coherent, and Floid - sorry to say - just looks out of place here.

So no more than 7.5 / 10 from me and DotD Cherry.

Thanks for all your votes.  I thought some would find this one a little "busy" but with RF Flick tried to give us plenty to look at and sometimes the canvas may have got a over-painted perhaps.  I love the Loo Rolls and am glad you got that one in GD.  Can't wait to see what makes it a 10 for you BB when you return from drab and boring Madagascar (not!)

If you love this song, you should check out the 10 min Tom Moulton remix on this fine box:

(which should be in any serious collectors home anyway...)

Thanks for the tip Vin, I might well buy that box set.  And ADB don't be so hard on yourself, I`m sure you're not that big; probably just a little out of shape with all that TV repair work an' all.  Anyway let's have some more opinions on Lou's Soul please
