Music for a Sunday: A sky-scraping dome

I remember when this one first came out, and there was a whole lot of shrieking and controversy. How could a notorious group with an “out” gay lead singer, who shot to fame with a video that was deemed obscene*, put out a love song for Christmas? And with such a respectful, Nativity-themed video, too?

How indeed. Even at 17, I “got” it long before the so-called adults did. This works both as a love song AND a Christmas one. Enjoy, and remember to do what it says: Make love your goal.

*The original “Relax” video was actually quite tame, even by the standards of the time, but I still ended up preferring the non-controversial version. Laser beams are just plain cooler, y’all.
