I know nothing at all about this clip, featuring Dutch band Golden Earring, Flick, and a bunch of elephants, which was kindly posted to Youtube by soapbox5. Flick's appearance are brief (blink and you'll miss most of them) but delightful. The poster dates this as 1966, and I see no reason to disagree.

We've seen this routine on the blog before: but that was long ago, in the early days, before I'd sorted out embedding watchable video. So here it is again. Legs & Co. dancing to Mike Oldfield's Portsmouth in great big thigh boots.

here's another classic Got Hossip routine from Kenny Everett's late seventies Thames TV show, that's new to us: dancing to Michael jackson's Working Day and Night.
Thanks to Youtube poster rbgumby for this clip.

Peter Powell introduces Legs & Co. dancing to Bob Dylan's Baby Stop Crying. We've seen this before on the blog, but only the TOTP2 version, with intrusive graphics overlays: now here's the original broadcast version.
A treat for Gill fans.

That nice rbgumby on YouTube, who previously posted much-sought-after HG routine "Walk on The Wild Side", has posted some other Hot Gossip clips, including this one, dancing to Roberta Kelly's 'Oh Happy Day'. There you go, Mrs. Whitehouse: they're dancing to a nice wholesome song about Jesus: you can't possibly have anything to complain about with this one, eh?
From The Kenny Everett Video Show series 2 episode 4.

I've said it before and I'll say it again: Lucky Old Shakin' Stevens got more than his fair share of chances to dance with Our Favourites. Here he is again*, singing This Ole House while the girls dance in po' white trash outfits. Thanks to Suefan for another great clip.
*See here for another performance by Shaky and Legs & Co to this song.

Here's another rare performance from Heart-Throb, Teri Scoble's dance group from Marc Bolan's short-lived 1977 series Marc. Dancing with Denis Conly, who's singing Idolizer.
Who He? Googling his name only seems to find references to this performance, so I'm guessing He might have had more than one crack at showbiz, perhaps under different stage names. If anyone knows better, let me know.
Thanks to Andy for the clip.

Here's a much-improved version of Legs & Co.'s performance, dancing to the Police's So Lonely on Top of the Pops. Many thanks to PattiforPM, who provided it.
