just a quick question ,a while ago we were trying to work out if the most different performances of legs and co to the same song went to elvis presleys way down hit ,did we get it to 4 different performances or was it a draw with donna summers i feel love which according to the databases they were dancing to it 4 times plus the xmas routine the ones i am aware of are
11/8/77 the song was number one and the girls wore the outfits they were wearing earlier on the show to were all alone
26 /12/ 77 another new routine
the databases state they also were part of the number on the
28/7/77 with noel edmonds
4/8/77 with jimmy saville
so who does the record of most danced routines to one song go to
elvis presley or
I remember the first time i heard `I feel love` it was the sexiest song i ever heard and proberly still is. Perfect song for Legs to dance to and would love to see other versions of it. If anybody has got any please upload to YMG, cheers guys.
21 July - DLT - Just posted on the Blog
28 July - Edmonds - Not sure but played until Credits and quite likely unique
4 Aug - Saville - Wiped Show but played until Credits so likely unique too
11 Aug - The Canadian Kid - As Jez says in "We're All Alone" outifts, played up to Credits (Sue cavorts with another guy)
26 Dec - Blackburn/DLT - Previously posted on Blog
So as I see it, assuming that dances running into credits are usually not repeats, there are probably 5 distinct dances to "I Feel Love" although one of these is a wiped show so we may never know for sure. I can post 11 Aug version and am hoping to see the 28 July version one day.
Some Dancers who gave a good time, broke all the rules, played all the fools, yeah yeah yeah they blew our minds
hi patti4pm and suefan ,
if suefan says elvis way down was done as well with oxyegene outfits then r we saying way down had 5 different routines with the girls
25/8/77 shorts and t shirts
1/9/77 silver lady outfits
8/9/77 oxyegene outfits .this is the one i have not seen
15/9/77 roadrunner outfits
29/9/77 beads and red outfit
i think ive got the outfits in the right dates but ive seen these routines so they do count the only one i havent seen is the oxyegene routine
so it looks like if the donna summers listings of legs to i feel love is correct this could be a draw chaps ,elvis vs donna
Jez, I believe from the still posted a while back what you have called the 'beads and red outfit' are the Oxygene costumes. My take is that the girls danced on 8/9/77 to both Oxygene and Way Down in the red/beads. The Way Down in red/beads was then repeated on the 29/9 show when the original dance was "Waiting In Vain", one I have yet to see but I live in hopes. Hence four costumes and six showings. If this is complete rubbish please jump in and shoot me down.
hi suefan ,no i have seen a brief snippet of the oxyegene routine someone posted it a bit a go on you tube and as far as i can remember it is not the same costume ,plus there were 5 legs girls on oxeygene and only 4 in beads and red on way down
Of course she is, such a sweet girl. Why until I took her aloft in the balloon she'd never been a mile high.
As for that Floyd. If indeed it is he, then he is nothing short of a cad and a bounder. Pressing his unwanted attentions upon poor Susan and then gallivanting off to the senior disco with young Gill. If this is how Miss Colby chaperones the young ladies in her charge the governors will need to be told.
Jez in your absence I posted a question which has got buried so here it is again. Can you remember anything about the costumes that the girls were wearing in that Oxygene snippet you mentioned from Utube?
