Above is the original video for Frankie Goes To Hollywood’s 1984 seasonal Number One, The Power Of Love. Not ostensibly a seasonal song, it has become one of UK’s favourite festive sounds and that journey began with this clever and highly evocative promo.

1. The Power Of Love

FORMAT: 7 Inch vinyl
YEAR: 1984

Frankie goes to Hollywood built the beginning of their career and their first three single releases on the three pillars of controversy: sex (‘Relax’), war (‘Two tribes’) and religion (‘The power of love’). This third single was a stark contrast to the busy, almost aggressive songs that went before: it was the epitome of tranquility.

The music video accompanying the single was directed by Godley & Creme and told the nativity story. The sleeve of the single featured the Assunta by Titian, a XVI century painting in the Basilica di Santa Maria Gloriosa dei Frari of Venice. In the UK an extra outer sleeve (pictured above) was added, wrapping up the single like a Christmas present. The single became the UKs Christmas number 1 in 1984 and reached number 9 in the Dutch Top 40.
