Frankie’s Two Tribes is the focus of BBC Radio 2’s landmark new series - The People’s Songs - this Wednesday 9th January

BBC Radio 2 has launched a brand new 50-part series for 2013 and wants listeners to get involved by contributing stories that will feature in the programme. Presented by Stuart Maconie, The People’s Songs will tell the story of modern Britain via 50 records that have provided the soundtrack to British culture.

Looking at the music that reflects the evolution of the world we live in, the series will weave a seamless journey through themes ranging from post-war optimism and the fissures and divisions in society during the punk years to mass immigration and the perils of fame, narcotics and the obsession with celebrity.

The second programme, which will air tomorrow at 10pm, sets the controls for 1984 and Frankie Goes To Hollywood’s colossal chart-topper, Two Tribes, which captured the prevailing mood of rampant paranoia and political insanity with global nuclear destruction seemingly closer than it had been since the Cuban missile crisis over 20 years before. And like the nuclear threat itself, Frankie Goes To Hollywood seemed to be everywhere one looked in 1984. Their music, their controversial videos and their "Frankie Say" t-shirts were ubiquitous.

Two Tribes (and some of its best remixes) is available on CD and as a digital download on various Salvo releases, including the best-selling Frankie Said, Welcome To the Pleasuredome and Sex Mix.

20 year old Gabrielle Aplin’s cover of  The Power of Love, selected by the John Lewis to soundtrack their blockbuster festive advertising campaign, hit the top spot in the UK singles chart last week.
It accompanies a 90-second advert that follows a snowman’s quest to find the perfect gift for his wife. Here it is:



The Power of Love, for many people Frankie’s finest composition, can be found on Salvo’s new compact compilation, Frankie Said, in two versions, the original single and a stunning, previously unreleased orchestral instrumental subtitled "...best listened to be lovers".

It’s available from all good retailers in digital and physical formats, while Gabrielle’s reading of the song can be downloaded from iTunes.
