Song of the day: Frankie Goes To Hollywood- Relax
Above an album cover from Frankie Goes To Hollywood, the album Welcome To The Pleasuredome.
I don’t own the album, but thanks to Wikipedia I know which songs are on the album. And between all those songs are some of my personal favourites.
And no, it is not the title song, it is not Two Tribes (which is a very good song too), and it isn’t The Power Of Love either.
I will tell you in a moment. They released several 12-inch singles (those long singles, which go on for 8,9 minutes! I love them!), and one of them had a B-side with a cover of Ferry Crossed The Mersey, which was originally sung by Gerry and the Pacemakers. It’s A-side is the song of the day, namely Relax!
And this song had some great merchandising, and one of those T-shirts is shown below:
