If I wanted to depress the both of us, I'd point out that this song is 18 years old

But I don't, so I'll just say it's by Holly "gay as the day" Johnson, of--
Relax don't do it (love)
When you want to come

This was his best post-Frankie Goes To Hollywood song, but I'm not sure it ever charted anywhere.

The house mix by Julian Mendelsohn was even better. Mendelsohn remixed and/or produced many records for and with Pet Shop Boys; there's an obvious resemblance to PSB in this video and song.

The Pets are my favorites and Frankie didn't have enough good songs to fill a best-of (IMO). But I think it's important to remember Frankie pre-dated PSB musically and Neil & Chris were hardly the first Britishers to wear that hat and suit...
