don't recall "Heaven on the 7th Floor". it's between the first 2 for me, with the nod going to "Reggae Like It Used to Be" mainly for its stupendous reappropriation of the word Reggae. but i do genuinely like the first 3.

also the bowler wd make anybody other than Paul Nicholas look like an utter cunt, whereas he gets away with just looking a bit of a tit

PN pulls off that trick of appearing likeable without coming across as 'desperately needs to be liked', as with most X Factor contestants. BTW, PN + XF desperation = Mika.
He also has that Cliff Richard thing of being able to turn down the o_O of any song he sings (see 'Devil Woman'). Except it's not enough to cover over the o_O of 'Heaven on the 7th Floor' - where the protagonist molests a woman in a stuck lift, possibly while high on drugs.

apparently, the b-side of "Reggae like it used to be" is awesome.

Wondering if the 'jigging in the rigging' bit in Dancing With The Captain inspired the Pistols?

I got the "Grandma's Party" one for free from a Radio Station.

"Shuffin' Shoes" is alright.

Automatic thread bump. This poll is closing tomorrow.

went for the "Reggae"

DLT mentions the dancers being in Ruby Slipper....I have no recollections of this dance troupe. They never get a mention when people discuss TOTP history, unlike Pan's People and then Legs & Co whom I actually remember being on.

Ruby Flipper - they weren't around for very long.
