BOOZE, MUSIC & FUN: Relax, When You Want To…

Yum! Here's a throwback to throwback a shot of tequila to. In the video a young fop arrives at a leather/fetish bar. Hijinx ensue… ENJOY!

The lyrics to the song are relatively ambiguous, although the line "When you want to come" is clearly a reference to orgasm. 

In America, any sexual innuendo contained in this song got little attention, but it caused plenty of controversy in England. On January 11, 1984, BBC Radio 1 DJ Mike Read announced on air that he refused to air "Relax" because of the single's controversial artwork and lyrics. Read was unaware of it at the time, but Radio 1 was already planning to ban the single, and did so shortly afterward.
