1 March 2013 – Frankie Goes To Hollywood – Relax – over on Wicked Guilty Pleasures

I got really sick of this song being everywhere when it was new.  But there was so much about this song that I didn’t understand back then.  It was kind of a dirty song.  At least, by 1984 standards.

Produced by the legendary Trevor Horn, the song slowly reached #10 on the US charts and topped the UK charts.  This video is the 2nd version of the video – a cleaner version that was made especially for the BBC so they wouldn’t ban them for indecency.  It didn’t work.

In 1984, this is what passed for indecent.  Pretty tame stuff.
