Frankie Goes To Hollywood - Relax (rabid remix)

In 1984, when times were still much more conservative, one of the most overly sexualized songs was released. Originating from England, Frankie Goes to Hollywood dropped the sex-heavy hit Relax (Don't Do It) and it took over. At one point, the song was even banned by the BBC due to it's controversial lyrics, which the band stated were not sexual in nature. Nonetheless, the lyrics were received as sexual by everyone else. Relax peaked at #1 in the UK and at #10 in the US. Even now, 33 years later, the song remains widely recognized by audiences of all ages.

With the remix of Morning After Dark about a week ago and featuring a sample of this smash hit, it was clear to me that I wanted to remix the original song. The remix features a verse from Petey Pablo and upgraded percussion. It is a nice alternative to the original, especially with the increased bass. You can stream Relax (rabid remix) right here  and (as always) you can download it here for free as well.

Be sure to check back for more great summer remixes and mashups. Coming soon will be a long overdue country megamix!!
