was a television show that ran from 1980 to 1988, on Saturdays, in the early evening, hosted by (among others) Dionne Warwick, Rick Dees, and Marilyn McCoo. It showcased snippets of the Top Ten popular songs of the week, accompanied and sometimes interpreted by the Solid Gold Dancers
. This post is about them.
I do not wish to waste words in trying to describe their sublime, slithery shiny-ness--other bloggers already have.
I am only posting this to encourage you, to egg you on, to help you release your inner Solid Gold Dancer
. Watch some of the examples below. Study and imitate the movements you see. Then, as the songs take control, try choreographing your own Solid Gold Dance Moves! Nobody's looking -- go ahead! You, wth the glasses, yeah, you, try it! It's quite fun.
The music has magic,
You know you can catch it;
If you let the songs take control...
The sound starts to glisten,
The more that you listen,
And slowly it turns into gold...
SOLID GOLD!! Filling up my life with music.
SOLID GOLD!! Putting rhythm in my soul.
There's a song that's unreeling,
To fit the way that I'm feeling;
My head keeps spinning to music,
Spinning to gold...
Bonus: Solid Gold Christmas Special; 1979's #49 to #42 hits
