I've had "Flight of the Bumble Bee" on my mind since reading the comments! Strange dream 9f a mass group dance to said theme with C,raig in the centre as a Giant Bluebottle affraid .... Not sure what I ate for dinner but it certainly made for an interesting dream or three!

Indeed Mr T! Although as alls alluded to, Ed Balls was slightly different to the other comedy acts in that although his execution wasn't brilliant, he had decent musicality and rhythm and did plenty of steps. I felt he was in a category all of his own.

Absolutely. But I also think that you need the right mood as well. I couldn't even tell what timing Castle on the Hill was (maybe the wunnerful wunnerful orchestra had played around with it to try and make it fit but didn't quite pull it off?) and I hadn't a clue which dance they were doing as I wasn't in the room for the training VT and the intro. Even if that tune had the right timing, it just hasn't got the right mood. Ditto WOMAN - it's a defiant, sassy song, not at all suited to the lovely sophisication of a Foxtrot, even if it was in the right time (Oh pur-leeease! Someone stop me now - I'm in danger of banging on again about Chizzygate and that really needs to be put to rest now...! affraid )

I didn't like Ed - I think because of Gangnam Style to be honest - but I concede that he tried very hard to improve and to do actual content with steps and technique and everything, rather than like the others cited who were just the comedy turn wiht little or no improvement anywhere (depsite Kristina's best efforts to be fair...) I am so hoping that the Rev isn;t going to take on that role. Or Brian either. I am the opposite of Allsewn - I can take the Rev Rich (for now - but not if he goes down the John Sargent route) but I can't take Brian at all. Especially after Sat... STOP ME NOW!!! (Do all roads lead to Chizzygate? Or is it just me - as the wunnerful wunnerful Miranda Hart is wont to say....)

Marian Keyes allows herself 3 'Agins' (people she has taken agin/against). They can change at any given time, ie she can be won over, or be turned against them. I am going to play that game too, though I think I may have more than 3 at the moment just because I am still Mrs Grumpy Unforgiving...

Anyway, for what it's worth my Agins are:

Brian - gurning, thumbs up all the time, annoying...

Amy - partner of the above so bound ot have one by association but also because of crimes against hair colour - it's too damn black and dead and harsh for her skin tones and youth

YASB - (in case any of you are catching up it stands for 'yet Another Slinky Blonde' who is partner to Davood. It could also stand for Sleazy after the weekend's QS...) Thinks all dances are about lust and sex and .. well, sleaze... Nasty.

Think Amy could win me over if she tries and also dyes her hair a more flattering shade, but think Rev is in the danger zone along with Katya for crimes against dance wiht Gangnam Style and for that dreadful unTango choreography on Sat night. I'm letting her off as the tune was distincly unhelpful.

I guess I should have my 3 'Afors' - but that may have to wait...

Most definitely D&P, but that's what the big-band era had because the world danced and music was written to suit both mood and rythmn (hence the well-worn "strict tempo" religion. It was a world of dance and romance..What sort of mood and timing does spinning on your head wearing a baseball cap need by the way? Is it Foxtrot or Vienese Waltz time? Wink

Haha I love playing Mar's Agin/Afor game too. I had Curtain Wiper down as a dead cert Agin pre-series but I'm grudgingly enjoying his choreography and dynamic with Debbie. So he's off the hook. Brian is irritating but not quite Agin-worthy irritating. YASB is on a warning and Aston has Agin potential if he can't excite me and knocks out a non-ringer I like more. I'm just glad James Jordan's not on it anymore cos I'd usually use all 3 Agins on him (and literally BUY other people's Agins from them to chuck at him).

My Afor atm is Gorka, naturally. Debbie and Jonnie are frontrunners for my other 2 and Joe is in with a shot too.

I'll give Jonni an Afor if he gets threre by improved dance and equality, he well might. Another Afor is Simon because he got a rubbish music paso thrown at him first week and then forgot his lines last week. Neither really a mortal sin at this stage so....Gemma is so far in the Afor list as long as she doesn't become YASB and start romance nonesense in the media. She has Alijaz on her side. A nton will go in time because it's written in the stars, so for me, he's an Afor. A fine dancer, sadly coming towards the end of his career as a compatitor. .

Agins? Well, it all depends, although the clutching hand rev is on the radar. Charlotte is an Afor at the moment, but that's as long as Brendan keps it buttoned with the judges, he's a dancer not an orator and could change them to an Agin. Brian's harmless and will doubtless soon disappear. As for the rest, I have no favourites right now, and am on the side of the angels where pure ringers are concerned.

Amen.. Cool

So glad you're playing too! (And again, I seem to be a bit behind everyone else on such things!)

In the way that you are slightly defrosting towards Gio, I am finding myself not so agin Little Lord Fauntleroy as I thought I would be. He's actually quite nice with Molly - I totally disagree wiht whatever judge said in Week 1 (week ONE!!) that they need to work on their partnership. From what I see on ITT they are very well suited and LLF comes across a little bit more mature than he did with C.laudia (mind you - he has had another birthday since then...)

Early impressions have been made on me by Simon Rimmer. Seems genuine, has never danced and seems keen to learn. I feel myself being pulled into his corner. On the other side of things it seems that Debbie has entered the Ringer Stakes as it has come out that she trained for some time to be a professional ballet dancer before linking up with Paul Daniels.

"Allegretto" by Bond, is a superb choice B4p. I love the group and have three of their C.D.s. Quite happy with the only record Barry Manilow ever made that didn't make me want to eat glass, "Copacabana". Proud Mary should be fine because Tina T is always fine. The rest I'll reserve judgement on ....I can stand to listen to both Daddy and Son Iglesias, some of their music is great, just can't bear watching them squirming about like they just invented women and rhythm. lol!

You've summed it up perfectly Mr T..................

I like quite a few of the music choices this week - as usual though, rubbish music for the pasos  (I had forgotten about the Darkness!  Used to quite like them at the time Laughing) - I do fear for Brian with this one.    I also fear for Simon with a samba to do this week and C harlotte with a jive - particularly up against Alex and Gorka doing the same dance.

Some more appropriate tunes this week although I think Brian looks like he's been stitched up like a kipper. Are they trying to turn the male celebs doing Paso s into the weekly comdey act? It's hard enough doing a Paso, and to lead, yet alone trying to do it to that silly concoction.

At least Simon's got a tune with a decent Samba rhythm. Let's hope he can take things up a notch.

I fear this will be Charlotte's last week. There's no way her cha-cha will shine out against Alexandra's (unless it's for the wrong reasons). Most of the women are in hold, so unless Mollie mashes up her Salsa, Charlotte looks potentially the weakest. I don't think spat's will gain her any rebound sympathy 3 weeks in a row.

Davood has no excuse for wiggly his assets this week, so hopefully if he concentrates on 'clean & simple' he'll be reasonably safe.

Agree with what Tango, mauveangel and B4 said, ie much better except for the paso tunes. Coldplay should never be played on a dance floor - it is a crime against humanity. And a paso...? (I could almost see a tango working to this. But not paso .)

Who'da thought - a latino beat song shoice for a salsa? How very novel....

Just one little thing I noticed - on ITT Jonny and Oti's Cry Me a River seemed to be Michael Bubble's version rather than Just in Time for the Lake's version... Quite different songs....

At the risk of being boring, I still believe that Paso and Tango should be latter end dances and not for beginners. A: They both need atmosphere and acting skilis to make them believable, B:They both need dance skills that won't be attained in a couple of weeks, and C: They both need (and have) traditional music that isn't supposed to be as wrong as trying to force toothpaste back into the tube. But saying it will change naught I know.....

I think we need to call in RNID because it is so very clear that the folks at Strictly Towers have severe hearing difficulties and may need a little bit of assistance... We mustn't blame them for something beyond their control Wink

lol!

I too agree (as always, every year) about the paso music and also where it should be placed in the contest. I also think that American Smooths and Sambas are better later on - big dances that use a range of skills and go well at Blackpool for example, whereas they can just come across as 'stitch ups' when seen early on - particularly for the male celebs. Talking of which - my fears about Simon and Brian for this week - along with C harlotte, were reinforced when I watched ITT tonight. Ian Waite got it spot on when he said that Mrs Clifton should be working on Simon's feet and the basic steps which he couldn't see that Simon was doing - Mrs Clifton is never strong on basics I feel. I think it will be an important week for both Debbie and Aston as they are both tackling dance styles that are different from what they have been doing so far - I hope Janette takes note of the '10 second rule' - I don't think it was observed in their week one Fox Trot. Very Happy

I noticed that too diamonds. I'm not sure if its a trendy office junior that gets to pick the tunes, (along with the corporate lunches) and they are going for artists that the yoof may have heard of. No doubt the band will put their own spin on it anyway, as they try to sort out some sort of dance rhythm, after Dave's meeting with the cider infused moronic brain who won the weekly sweepstake for choosing the tunes Mad I wonder what Dave Arch makes of the music choices confused
