Repetitive Song Lyrics:

"Relax"
The Repetitive Lyrics:
Relax, don't do it
when you want to go to it,
Relax, don't do it
when you want to come
Relax, don't do it,
when you want to step to it
Relax, don't do it
when you want to come
Why They're Repetitive:
Responding to sXe LeXi 5X2

LeXi, since you've never seen this video before I'll try to explain it to you. Acording to the VH1's Behind The Music 1984 rertrospective all of the members of Frankie Goes to Hollywood were openly gay so naturally the song Relax is about sex. All of the clues are in the chorus.

Relax, don't do it, when you want to go to it
Relax, don't do it, when you want to come

It basically means if you don't want to have sex then don't do feel as though you need to be pressured into doing it.

Inappropriate Song Lyrics:

"The Power Of Love"
The Inappropriate Lyrics:
I'll protect you from The Hooded Claw
Why They're Inappropriate:
This line always stood out for all the wrong reasons. I always end up thinking of the Ant Hill Mob from 'Wacky Races' and 'The Perils Of Penelope Pitstop' in the middle of this loving song! The video was about Mary & Joseph and baby Jesus going to Bethlehem also.

What A Band is Best Known For (aside from their music):

"Frankie Says"
In 1984 and 1985 Frankie Goes To Hollywood made quite a stir. Their most notorious hit, "Relax" hit the Top 10 all over the planet (#1 in their native UK). They put out merchandise to stoke the hype. There were T-shirts that said, "Frankie Says: Relax. Don't Do It." Another design just said "Relax". David Bowie in his 20-odd minute video mini-movie "Jazzing For Blue Jean" which promoted his big hit "Blue Jean" wears a "Relax" shirt. Another Frankie T-shirt said "Frankie Says: War! Hide Yourselves". However a backlash to this trend appeared in mid 1985 - a T - shirt that said, "Who Gives A Fuck What Frankie Says?"
