Whoever Pan was, he had good people…
Way back in the olden days, before pop groups made dazzling music videos to accompany their hit records, a certain amount of spontaneous ingenuity was needed on Top of The Pops. What could they possibly do if an artist couldn’t make it onto the show? Rather than all huddle around a record player, listening along to the seven inch, biting their bottoms lips, nodding appreciatively, the masterful minds that then ran the BBC – or Auntie, as some people hilariously call it – decided to give a troupe of sexy dancers the chance to throw together some slick routines to accompany the sound. And thusly, Pan’s People were born. And what a gaggle of sensuality they proved to be, with a stark contrast of blondes and brunettes, with one occasional ginger thrown in, they were, in essence, the original Girls Aloud. Working men around the land could be found praying to Zeus, thanking him for such a marvelous blessing on a cold Thursday evening, as logs smouldered in the fireplace, and a nice stew fermented in the kitchenette. Fact.
Of course, we wouldn’t lavish the boys with Pan’s People without a little Magnum, P.I action for the girls. Below is Tom Selleck.
