Storyline

"The Power of Love" is a song originally recorded and released by English band Frankie Goes to Hollywood. It was written by Holly Johnson, Peter Gill, Mark O'Toole and Brian Nash, four of five members of the band. It was released by the group as their third single. "The Power of Love" is often regarded as a Christmas song, despite having no reference to Christmas within the song lyrics. However, the accompanying video features the Nativity, and the single cover was The Assumptions of the Virgin. Written by Peter-Patrick76 (peter-patrick@mail.com)
