So Frankie Goes To Hollywood’s new single is about any two tribes—e.g. men and women or any other opposites you can think of. So said Holly Johnson (or was it the other one) on Peter ‘I’m so trendy’ Powell’s show. Why then should the group make a video showing the violent clash between the two super-powers and advertise the song by printing the horrendous statistics of a nuclear war? It may be a good thing to publicise these facts but for a pop group to try and make a profit by doing so is wrong.
Frankie are trying to cash in on teenagers’ anti-American/Thatcher/cruise opinions/feelings. This ain’t doing any good at all. Frankie should stop sensation-seeking and also realize that CND are not a trend but a dedicated peace-seeking organization. Am I making sense? I hope so.
In case you print this (!) I’d like to say—a) I’m not trying to provoke an argument by being ridiculous/thick/stupid on purpose; and b) it’s my opinion and I’ll stick by it.
