Friday Poll Thread #7 - Best Power of Love

Post by BitterTom »

3 classics. Same name. We need to find out which is banger, which is mash.

Contender #1 - Frankie Goes to Hollywood. A fine effort, atmospheric, powerful, emotional. The right ingredients make the perfect cake.

Contender #2 - Jennifer Rush. Who can honestly say they don't belt the chorus out when this makes an appearance? A cracking number and possibly gets my vote, I'll do all that I can.

Contender #3 - Huey Lewis and The News. Actually this one is shit.

I like Franky Goes To Hollywood but that is not one of them.
Not even commenting on the other 2 😳

Looks like I'm the only daft fucker to vote for Huey Lewis. Fun song.

It is objectively the best of the three but I can't disassociate it with Christmas now. Which is a shame because the the lyrics have nothing to do with Christmas.

Yeah that's true it does get lumped in with Christmas. But I love that first line "I'll protect you from the hooded claw, keep the vampires from your door".
