A surreal one today because we have a Christmas hit with all the classic Christmas elements:
- Dramatic orchestral elements – check.
- Biblical video – check.
- Frankie goes to Hollywood – errrrr……. check.
Yes, the band that brought us “Relax” and “Two Tribes” had a successful stab at the festive #1 slot in 1984. They managed to score #1 in early December but were pushed off the festive slot itself by Band Aid!
Is it ironic? Are there camp references? Is it just a good tune? The answer to all three questions is “Yes”, so sit back, (Frankie says) relax, and enjoy The Power of Love.
