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!
Good grief this brings back memories - used to blast it out (with my other '12 inchers') on my record player in my bedroom over and over again - must have driven my parents up the wall - sorry Mum and Dad!
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!
