I SAY, I SAY, I SAY…
Get that slogan off your chest and you could get it on your chest!
Unless you shouted “Woargh!” and hid yourself, you won’t have missed the summer’s biggest fashion.
For Frankie’s is the face that launched a thousand white T-shirts and dozens more headline-sized “Frankie say” slogans.
And it didn’t stop at the ones Frankie really said, either.
From that first innocent “Relax”, we’ve had everything from the cute—
All of which set us thinking.

After long consultations with his llama and a quick word with the mechanical pirates, what would Mr Jackson scrawl?
If we could get him out of the flowerbeds long enough, what would Morrissey say?
And given that they’re frankly anti-Frankie, what would Spandau come up with?

- BLANCMANGE SAY GET SET
- THE SMITHS SAY IT WITH FLOWERS
- THE BUNNYMEN SAY WHAT’S UP DOC?
- MICHAEL JACKSON SAYS IT TO DUMMIES
- NICK RHODES SAYS FRANKIE WHO?
- BIG COUNTRY SAY REAL-AXES STILL DO IT
- DURAN DURAN SAY REFLEX—
WE DID IT
- SPANDAU, WHAM AND CULTURE CLUB SAY WAR ON FRANKIE
(…Not that we don’t like them because of their success, y’understand? Heaven forbid! I mean just because they’ve spent, you know, 19 weeks at No.1, it’s no reason to dislike them as people… And just because they’ve been on the cover of 234 different magazines and everyone’s talking about them… It’s just that, well (Contd. p39))

Closing date for entries is September 10, so relax! And go to work…Continue »
