Whitney Goes To Hollywood

OK one of the best moments of my life was seeing Holly Johnson do ‘Power of Love’ at my first Pride in ’97 with fireworks kicking off behind us at the same time, a very moving moment, especially as we were all glad that Holly was there at all (he’s still doing well since, I’m glad to report) and I think that gave the whole event a pathos and finality….I’d never really thought much of the song before then.

So this originally was a mashup with that annoying Frankee woman (hence the ‘cover’ comment seemed to work so well) but it just wasn’t working til I realised how Whitney’s ‘I Wanna Dance With Somebody’ is actually quite yearning and sad, if you listen to the lyrics…hence Whitney met Frankie and the rest is, well, history…
