The Power Of Love - Frankie Goes To Hollywood

In November 1991, Holly Johnson learned he was HIV positive. This triggered a temporary withdrawal from the music business and public life in general. His condition was made public in April 1993. In 1994 his critically acclaimed autobiography, A Bone In My Flute, was published.

Since the mid 1990s, Johnson has worked primarily as a painter. His works have been exhibited at the Tate Liverpool, and The Royal Academy.

I don't know why, but this song is very calming. Could anyone else sing this?

"The Power Of Love" was a festive chart hit - 1984, I believe. It's the only Christmas chart smash I can recall that mentions a vampire. ONLY in the 80s! Excellent!
