Frankie Goes To Hollywood - Watching The Wildlife (1987)
Watching The Wildlife 12" Vinyl
The seventh and final UK single from the controversial 80s band was the third track to be lifted from the Liverpool
album. The 12 inch versions were, as always with Frankie, particularly good, featuring real
orchestral string arrangements. However, many fans believed at the time that Frankie should've
released Maximum Joy instead of this track.
Released on Feb 23rd 1987, Watching The Wildlife reached Number 28 in the UK singles chart and #23 in Germany.
After all the controversy over the lyrics in the Relax single - "Relax Don't Do It" was basically telling everyone not to use protection during sexual intercourse - Frankie caved in to the media frenzy over Aids becoming a global epidemic, and decided that this single should feature the message "Use A Condom".
