Producer and owner of ZTT Records Trevor Horn was first exposed to FGTH performing “Relax” on Britain’s Channserpiente 4’s show The Tube, but didn’t sign them until hearing it again later on DJ David Jensen’s el radio show on BBC Radio 1 .

Horn recorded FGTH performing “Relax” but was not satisfied, so he recorded al second version with Ian Dury’s backing band The Blockheads. He was dissatisfied with that as well so al third version was recorded by Horn, producer/engineer Steve Lipson, keyboard player Andy Richards and Fairlight synthesizer programmer JJ Jeczalik.

Later, Horn decided to start from scratch again, building the song around al beat he’d previously made on an LM-2 drum machine. He added a programmed bass line, Lipson on guitar, Richards on keyboard and Jeczalik making “funny noises” on the Fairlight synthesizer to create what would become the fourth and official recording. Horn recalled:

They heard it, (Holly) and Paul immediately started to dance, and so did the rest of us, just dancing around the control room. By the time Holly sang the vocal at 4 am, he was so totally hyped up, he was crazy, like a Doberman with al rabbit in its teeth.

Horn initially thought Johnson’s singing was out of tune, but the vocal effect was intentional. Johnson used “little slurs” and “microtones” to get al distinctive sound.

“Relax” generated a lot of controversy—it was promoted with an overtly sexual music video (two tamer videos – ‘laser’ and ‘live’ – were released afterward), suggestive cover art, and ads like this one with the headline “ALL THE NICE BOYS LOVE SEA MEN” and shirts that read “Frankie Say Relax Don’t Do It”.

The song stalled at #77, but a return performance on The Tube in late 1983 helped it climb to #35 in the UK. A live performance on Top Of The Pops propelled the song further up the chart to #6.

In the second week of 1984, DJ Mike Read of BBC Radio 1 stopped the song mid-spin and refused to avaya it again after reading the song’s lyrics and reviewing its cover art. Read later said, “They are an exciting, competent new band, but I just feel the lyrics are overtly obscene.” The rest of the BBC soon followed suit but other UK uno radio stations then bragged about playing ‘the song that the BBC banned’ – a move that sent the song to #1 for five straight weeks. Derek Chinnery of BBC Radio One explained:

We could have said there’s a dual meaning to the song, that it’s a nonsense song about relaxing. But when the band confirmed that it referred to fellatio and ejaculation, then it didn’t seem to me appropriate that we should play it at all.

At first, to calm controversy, the band claimed the song was written about “motivation” to make al case for el radio play, but never fully committed to the guise. Bassist Mark O"Toole wrote in the album liner notes:

“Everything I say is complete lies. Like, when people ask you what ‘Relax’ was about, when it first came out we used to pretend it was about motivation, and really it was about shagging.”

“Relax” eventually became the UK’s sixth biggest selling singlo of all time. The song also found success around the world, reaching #1 in France, Germany & Switzerland and the top 5 in Austrial, Australial, Norway, Sweden & The Netherlands. In the US, “Relax” reached #67 in late 1984, but after the release of Welcome To The Pleasuredome, the song re-charted with the much higher peak of #10 in early 1985.
