Pop's Greatest Dance Crazes

Postby K8-84 » 05 Mar 2011, 19:35

Time - 20:30 to 23:30 (3 hours long).
When - Saturday 12th March on BBC 3
Robert Webb hosts a top fifty countdown of the hippest, sexiest, quirkiest and campest dance crazes of the last forty years. Re-live your guiltiest pleasures, celebrate your fast-footed heroes and scorn those annoying ones you thought you'd forgotten in a fun-filled romp through the archives. What turns a simple bit of choreography into a worldwide phenomenon? What do Single Ladies, Thriller, Vogue, Oops Upside Your Head and The Macarena have that the Birdie Song and the Ketchup Song don't? Featuring interviews with Melanie C, Louie Spence, Rufus Hound, Bradley Macintosh, Katy Brand, Craig Revel Horwood, Richard O'Brien, MC Hammer, Carl Douglas, The Village People, Jarvis Cocker, Suggs, Andrew Stone, Shappi Khorsandi, Lisa Scott Lee and Whigfield. They'll be getting under the skin of where the moves originated, how they became a sensation, and - crucially for all you dance-floor show-offs - how to recreate them.

I guess they'll be including Stop in the list, then?

Katy Brand is a UK comediene, I think it'll be one of those shows where they'll show a video, Stop for example then they'll show a couple of "famous" people going "stop right now" and imitating the dance, Melanie will probably comment on whichever Spice song is being talked about and some others. It's a typical UK style countdown show by the sound of it.

That was cool, thanks.
I think it is surprising that they didn't say anything at all about Stop.

^ That's what I thought, too. 'Stop' is their most popular dance routine by miles, it's weird how they didn't single it out.

Spice Up Your Life?!

The way it was presented was a bit... odd. I mean, I caught that Spice Up Your Life was the show's choice... but it seemed sorta like: "The number 49 greatest dance craze was... the Spice Girls!" Um. Huh?

I'd probably say the dance routines for Stop, Wannabe, and Who Do You Think You Are are more famous... but... what do I know? At least the whole thing didn't focus on just Wannabe.

I'd be somewhat curious to see the original choreography for their songs before it was simplified. There's a brief glimpse of a Say You'll Be There performance in Japan on the One Hour of Girl Power video. I take it that may have been a bit of early choreography... looked more complicated than anything they did in other performances of that song.

It's so sweet for Melanie to defend on behalf of Geri!

"We used to do a bit of extra rehearsing, myself and Geri" - I'm not too sure if she chose to rehearse extra so that Geri didn't feel alone or was she just being very serious about getting the dance routine right compared to the other girls, what do you guys think?
