Was looking through some of my old vinyl the other day and what did I come across but my original 12 incher (ahem!) of Frankie’s Relax …
So…today it’s got to be…
Frankie Goes To Hollywood – Relax!
Released in 1983 (eventually included on the album Welcome to the Pleasure Dome) – banned in 1984 by the BBC it got to No 1 and stayed there for 5 weeks. If you remember the original video (also banned) had lots of leather, flesh and bits and pieces flying around – if you get my drift so thought I’d better use this pared down video – still – the ‘making me want to get up and dance factor’ is ever present!
Brilliant – still gets everyone up this one (oops sorry slip of the tongue) – you can’t not want to dance your butt off ….!
What was your favourite Frankie track – hubby says he likes Two Tribes – think mine’s got to be this one - ’Relax – don’t do it – when you want to go to it – Relax – don’t do it – when you want to … !’ – ok best stop there! - one thing’s for sure…you can’t beat a good old 12 incher!
