TOTP is a good indicator of ageing.

I knew I was getting old when my son said it was a load of tuneless rubbish performed useless no-hopers.

That was about twenty years after I had said much the same thing!

Massive influence in its heyday though.

I wish you hadn't mentioned Pans People, Woolwell; you've made me go all of a quiver again ;-)

Rare photos!!! I remember them as if it was yesterday. I must be really getting old. I got married the same year as TOTP started.

The worst ever Pan's People dance was the 'Someone Left The Cake Out In The Rain' dance, it was terrible, prancing around with a candled birthday cake, they even looked embarrassed to be doing it!

I can't find a clip of it, it's so bad that someone's erased all traces of it from the net...

It was great to see all the old pics even if TOTP did seem naff at the time. The young Jimmy Saville! Sonny and Cher! The old black and white pics are so cool.

May I say , for argument's sake that Someone Left the Cake out in the Rain must have been the worst song of all time? At least as far as I am concerned. It has been revived so many times, or at least played as a Goldie Oldie and it just seems to go on forever with no meaning. Someone did explain it to me once but it didn't help! I never saw the dance to go with it, I am pleased to say!!
