Storyline

First appearing before music videos had become commonplace, this show featured the week's top hits in pop music. Guest performers would occasionally appear on the show to play their songs. Typically, however, the only visual accompaniment to the music was the Solid Gold Dancers, a dozen or so dancers in skimpy costumes who would perform interpretive renditions of such hits as "Down Under" and "Maniac".

Schlocky, Campy show only should be viewed for Nostalgia
22 September 2009 | by HoohawnaynaySee all my reviews

Well, this show was probably the campiest thing on TV in the early 80's. My dancer and nightclub entertainer friends used to always reference this show whenever they saw someone over-doing it on the dance floor. Yes, the dancing on this show was over the top and a bit pretentious and yes the singers were always lip syncing so they didn't mess up their hair or makeup. Yes, Andy Gibb was usually high on cocaine, Dionne Warwick slurred her speech and Marilyn McCoo was just too nice and perky but if you want to see some really horrendous 80's clothes and hair then by all means tune in. However, I would keep a syringe filled with some insulin nearby. Probably one of the few TV shows of the 80's that was just too 1980's even when it was currently being filmed. Harmless bit of fluff that wasn't taken seriously by any REAL dancer I knew but I'm sure they ate it up in the Midwest.
