The song „The Power of Love“ by Frankie Goes to Hollywood was highly successful upon its release. It was the third single from the band’s debut album, „Welcome to the Pleasuredome,“ and it reached number one on the UK Singles Chart in December 1984.

„The Power of Love“ gained popularity not only for its melodic and emotional qualities but also because it was released during the holiday season, which contributed to its appeal. The song’s success was further boosted by its inclusion in the Christmas advertising campaign for the British retailer, Boots.

„The Power of Love“ remains one of Frankie Goes to Hollywood’s most well-known and beloved songs. Its chart-topping success solidified the band’s status as one of the prominent acts of the 1980s.
