That's Alan... Oh, there you are behind us. Sneaking up behind me.

0:03:210:03:24

That's Alan Price and Kissed Away The Night, his new one.

0:03:240:03:27

Get a pencil and paper handy, because a little later

0:03:270:03:29

I'll give you details on our competition to find a brand new name

0:03:290:03:32

for our new dancers, here on Top Of The Pops.

0:03:320:03:35

So if you want to win a prize and come on Top Of The Pops,

0:03:350:03:37

you need a pencil and paper handy, OK?

0:03:370:03:39

But now, back we go to music and here's the number three sound,

0:03:390:03:42

and what a lovely sound this one is.

0:03:420:03:44

It's called If You Leave Me Now, and here they are,

0:03:440:03:47

the wonderful sound of Chicago,

0:03:470:03:48

doing so well in the charts at the moment.

0:03:480:03:50

APPLAUSE

0:03:500:03:52

# If you leave me now

0:03:560:03:59

# Ooh oh, no, baby please don't go

0:04:230:04:29

# Ooh, oh, girl I just want you to stay

0:04:290:04:35

# A love like ours is love that's hard to find

0:04:390:04:45

# How could we let it slip away?

0:04:480:04:53

# We've come too far to leave it all behind

0:04:580:05:04

# How could we end it all this way?

0:05:070:05:12

# When tomorrow comes and we both regret

0:05:120:05:17

# The things we said today

0:05:170:05:22

0:07:260:07:29

How lovely. If You Leave Me Now, the sound of Chicago.

0:07:350:07:38

Used to be one of my records of the week on Radio 1.

0:07:380:07:40

Do you like the T-shirt? I definitely think this is a style

0:07:400:07:43

that's going to catch on for this coming Christmas.

0:07:430:07:46

Well, in actual fact, this is the new look for '77.

0:07:460:07:49

-Let's have a look at...

-That one is a bit under the arm.

0:07:490:07:51

0:07:510:07:53

I'm going to introduce one of my other records of the week.

0:08:120:08:15

# Just snap your fingers and I'm walking

0:10:280:10:30

Fabulous. You Make Me Feel Like Dancing,

0:10:300:10:32

and that's the sound of Leo Sayer, in at number 30.

0:10:320:10:35

Don't worry, I've got rid of him. I've given him the elbow,

0:10:350:10:38

we're by ourselves now, we should be all right.

0:10:380:10:40

Let's have a bit of that Love And Affection right now

0:10:400:10:42

and here's a really beautiful song that's doing so well

0:10:420:10:45

for Joan Armatrading. Here it is.

0:10:450:10:47

# I am not in love

0:10:490:10:51

# But I'm open to persuasion

0:10:540:10:58

# East or west

0:10:580:11:01

# Where's the best

0:11:010:11:05

# For romancing?

0:11:050:11:07

# With a friend

0:11:100:11:12

# I can smile

0:11:120:11:15

# But with a lover I could hold my head back

0:11:150:11:17

# I could really laugh, really laugh

0:11:170:11:20

# Thank you

0:11:240:11:26

# You took me dancing

0:11:290:11:32

# 'Cross the floor

0:11:330:11:36

# Cheek to cheek

0:11:360:11:39

# But with a lover I could really move, really move

0:11:390:11:42

# I could really dance, really dance

0:11:420:11:45

# Really dance, really dance

0:11:450:11:47

# I could really move, really move

0:11:470:11:50

# Really move, really move

0:11:500:11:52

# Now if I can feel the sun

0:11:520:11:57

# In my eyes And the rain on my face

0:11:570:12:01

# Why can't I

0:12:010:12:03

# Feel

0:12:030:12:08

# The friends that I want

0:12:280:12:30

# I may need more

0:12:340:12:37

# But I shall just stick To those that I have got

0:12:370:12:41

# With friends I still feel So insecure

# Little darling, I believe You could help me a lot

0:12:500:12:53

# Just take my hand And lead me where you will

0:14:580:15:02

APPLAUSE

0:15:040:15:06

Beautiful song, isn't it? Joan Armatrading there and Love And Affection.

0:15:060:15:10

If you were watching last week, you'll know we're having an exciting competition,

0:15:100:15:15

because we have six new dancers but we haven't found a name for them.

0:15:150:15:18

Well, thousands of you wrote in last week,

0:15:180:15:21

but we want some more cards. So this is all you've got to do.

0:15:210:15:24

First, you need a postcard, rather like this one.

0:15:240:15:27

You don't have to have one quite as big as that.

0:15:270:15:29

All you have to do is put what you think the group should be called on the left hand side,

0:15:290:15:34

then put your own name and address,

0:15:340:15:36

and if you've got a telephone, put the telephone number as well. OK?

0:15:360:15:40

That's all you have to do. Simple as that.

0:15:400:15:42

Now if your card is chosen as the one that we think is best,

0:15:420:15:45

the prize is to come here next week and announce

0:15:450:15:48

what you think the group should be called,

0:15:480:15:51

and from that moment on they'll be called that.

0:15:510:15:53

And also we might sneak in a rather exciting little prize for you.

0:15:530:15:57

The cards, by the way, have to be in by the 1st November, OK?

0:15:570:16:01

The first post. You'll want to know the address to write to.

0:16:010:16:04

Let's go back to the postcard.

0:16:040:16:06

We've flipped it over.

0:16:060:16:07

We're very clever here. All you've got to put is...

0:16:070:16:10

So now let's see the dancers dancing to the Theme From Jaws.

0:16:170:16:21

MUSIC: "Theme From Jaws" by Lalo Schifrin

0:16:210:16:24

APPLAUSE

0:18:580:19:01

Lalo Schifrin there, and the Theme From Jaws

0:19:010:19:03

or Fins Ain't What They Used To Be.

0:19:030:19:05

-Did you see that film?

-Yeah.

-A very frightening film, wasn't it?

0:19:050:19:09

Those were the Top Of The Pops dancers.

0:19:090:19:11

I wonder what you'll call them.

0:19:110:19:13

We'll announce the winners next week.

0:19:130:19:15

But right now, I hate to say it, here's another of my records of the week.

0:19:150:19:19

From Simon May, it's at number 7 this week, The Summer Of My Life.

0:19:190:19:23

0:23:190:23:24

The Summer Of My Life. And didn't we have a lovely summer?

0:23:240:23:27

Not like the rain we're getting now. Still, we could do with it.

0:23:270:23:30

We could also do with a little bit of funky music with Wild Cherry.

0:23:300:23:34

APPLAUSE

0:23:340:23:36

Hey! Wait a minute!

# Now first it wasn't easy

0:25:140:25:17

# Changin' rock and rolling minds

0:25:180:25:22

# And things were getting shaky

0:25:220:25:24

# I thought I'd have to leave it behind

0:25:260:25:30

# But now it's so much better It's so much better

# I'm funking out in every way

# But I'll never lose that feelin' No, I won't

0:25:390:25:43

# Of how I learned my lesson that day

0:25:430:25:47

# When they were dancin' and singin' And movin' to the groovin'

0:25:470:25:52

# And just when it hit me Somebody turned around and shouted

0:25:520:25:56

# Play that funky music, white boy

0:25:560:26:00

# Play that funky music right

0:26:000:26:05

# Play that funky music, white boy

0:26:050:26:09

# Lay down the boogie and Play that funky music till you die

0:26:090:26:14

# Till you die

0:26:140:26:17

# Oh, till you die

0:26:170:26:20

Doing very well in the discotheques,

0:26:300:26:32

that's Play That Funky Music from Wild Cherry at number 15.

0:26:320:26:35

Just before we play the number 1,

0:26:350:26:37

remember that competition address

0:26:370:26:39

to find the name for our brand new dancers.

0:26:390:26:41

Let's see our postcard again, shall we? It's...

0:26:410:26:44

And in, of course, by the 1st November.

0:26:490:26:52

That's Monday, and it must be the first post. OK?

0:26:520:26:54

We're going to go for the number 1, right now. Here they are.

0:26:540:26:57

Still at number 1, Pussycat and Mississippi.

# Well, you can hear A country song from far

0:27:140:27:20

# And someone play the honky tonk guitar

0:27:220:27:27

# Where all the lights will go out one by one

0:27:300:27:35

# The people enjoying the sun

0:27:350:27:38

# And the wind takes it away

0:27:380:27:43

# Where the Mississippi rolls down to the sea

0:27:440:27:50

# And lovers found the place they like to be

0:27:520:27:57

# How many times before the song was ending

0:28:000:28:06

# Love and understanding Everywhere around

0:28:060:28:13

# Mississippi

0:28:150:28:21

# I'll remember you

0:28:240:28:28

# Whenever I shall go away

0:28:300:28:34

# I'll be longing for the day

0:28:340:28:38

# That I will be in Greenville again

0:28:380:28:43

# Mississippi

0:28:450:28:52

# You'll be on my mind

0:28:540:29:00

# Every time I hear this song

0:29:010:29:05

# Mississippi, roll along

0:29:050:29:09

# Until the end of time

0:29:090:29:13

# Now the country song forever lost its soul

0:29:200:29:26

# When the guitar player turned to rock and roll

0:29:280:29:33

# And every time when summer nights are falling

0:29:360:29:42

# I always will be calling

0:29:420:29:46

# Dreams of yesterday

0:29:460:29:48

# Mississippi

0:29:500:29:58

# I'll remember you

0:30:000:30:04

# Whenever I shall go away

0:30:060:30:10

# I'll be longing for the day

0:30:100:30:14

# That I will be in Greenville again

0:30:140:30:19

# Mississippi

0:30:220:30:28

# You'll be on my mind

0:30:300:30:37

# Every time I hear this song

0:30:380:30:42

# Mississippi, roll along

0:30:420:30:45

# Until the end of time. #
