Tidy lass(es).

At least you established a Reggae connection, Andy - and the MIDNIGHT RIDER clip got the ol' ticker racing a bit!

RIP.

I always thought their "dancing" was pretty naff... However, shocked to read that four of them had now died! Shocked

...but then they usually only had a couple of days to devise a theme, routine and perfect *** a dance routine that was a bit different to a previous one.

*** as you imply, Pete, they rarely perfected one, but the looks and (sometimes lack of) costume almost always made up for it.

Can't immediately spot any other Reggae tracks with PP dancing.

70 is too, young. Far, too young, to pass on..... Sad

I'm in the middle, when it comes to their dancing. Sometimes, it went well, with what was going on, musically. Other times, it didn't.

As for my, maybe saying, "Hubba! Hubba!", Joe:

Hubba! Hubba! Mr. Green

I was always disappointed when the music we love was subject to a Pans People dance.
If I was in charge I'd had a deal with Soul Train for clips of real musicians in action.
We in the UK had to suffer the blandest MOR performances and naff dancers.

If I thought the song was a bit naff, I used to turn down the volume Wink
