Pride Month Countdown: Frankie Goes To Hollywood

FGTH leader Holly Johnson

FGTH was one of the first gay fronted bands that made no bones about sex. Some had come before like Sylvester or Jimmy Sommerville, but they didn’t break out much beyond the gay world, when I was too young to get in or even realize what a homo I was.

This is one of 3 videos they made for their biggest hit, Relax. My favorite by a mile since it highlights the film Body Double and along side Duran Duran’s Girls on Film was one of the first music videos they couldn’t show on TV. Still brilliant.

Love Love Love this version. Still better than the version released to promote the song. Guess I’m a sucker for Brian De Palma’s movie.
