The Song Is About What!?!? – Relax by Frankie Goes to Hollywood

The Song Is About What!?!? – Relax by Frankie Goes to Hollywood

Arguably no music group had a bigger 18 month run than Frankie Goes to Hollywood in 1984 – no one. They dominated both music, the news and pop culture – the world was their oyster, and in just two years, they were gone. Join Q and Tim as they dive into the iconic 80s hit, “Relax” by Frankie Goes to Hollywood. Would it be a hit if released in today’s music landscape, despite the overt sexual innuendo and being banned by the BBC before it was even released? This hit, produced by the hottest producer of the moment, Trevor Horn, conquered 1984 and skyrocketed an obscure group of lads from Liverpool to global sensations. From analyzing the lyrics and production to examining the cultural context of the time, this episode provides a thought-provoking discussion on the enduring appeal of this classic and controversial song, which spawned a fashion craze with T-Shirts and defined the 80’s musical landscape. This video is a must-watch for music enthusiasts.

From Forgotten Softcore Movie Soundtrack to the Greatest Earworm EVER Mahna-Mahna

From Forgotten Softcore Movie Soundtrack to the Greatest Earworm EVER Mahna-Mahna

How a softcore porn soundtrack composer, teamed up with the “The Good, The Bad & The Ugly” movie theme whistler, get a boost from a comedian from the ’40s, and then get boosted by The Muppets to create one of the greatest earworms… EVER. And as earworm-y as the song is… its creator had zero idea of what he had created. Back in the 1960s pornography was illegal in most of the world so creative people made “nature documentaries” featuring nudists, among other things, and “Viva la Sauna Svedese” or “Hooray for the Swedish Sauna” was written by Italian composer Piero Umilani for a 30-second clip of Swedish women walking into a sauna. He then threw it into a file of the music he had created for the movie and sold it to a company that wanted U.S. rights. He had so little regard for it he didn’t even note its inclusion, and that’s where its crazy journey to becoming the greatest earworm of all time takes off!
