Frankie Say Relax

I was listening to Frankie Goes to Hollywood on the treadmill this morning, and I have to say... they were not a bad sounding outfit! It wasn't even "Relax" I was listening to, but a lesser hit also filled with gay imagery called "Welcome to the Pleasure Dome." Then, it hit me why they sound so good - they were produced by Trevor Horn, one-half of the Buggles and the production genius behind Art of Noise, Seal, and others. Unheralded talent, that's for sure.

If I have to recommend the Buggles' two albums, "The Age of Plastic" and "Adventures in Modern Recording," one more time, I'm going to go on a rampage with a Swiffer and the repressed anger of my childhood.
