* RearrangeTheSong: The singles were basically all about Trevor Horn showing off his skills at this.

* RearrangeTheSong: The singles were basically all about Trevor Horn and Steve Lipson showing off his their skills at this.this. Horn said he originally released multiple edits to figure out how to really configure a song for the 7", 12" and album formats, but once he got the hang of it, he never stopped producing alternate versions.

Added DiffLines:

* ChristmasSongs: "The Power of Love" is often to be considered this due to its music video, which depicts the nativity, coupled with its being released at Christmas time. The song itself is a rather straightforward (as straightforward as anything produced by Trevor Horn with an epic orchestral arrangement by Anne Dudley ever is, that is) love ballad whose lyrics have absolutely nothing to do with Christmas whatsoever.
* CoveredUp: "The Power of Love" again, which was covered by Gabrielle Aplin for a [[BritishBusinesses John Lewis]] advert in 2012; said cover reached number 1 in the charts 28 years after FGTH's version did.

** The album ''Welcome to the Pleasuredome'' featured a HiddenTrack in the center of the album called "(tag)", in which Barrie once again, this time impersonating Prince Charles, ruminates over the orgasm. There's also a spoken intro to their cover of "Born to Run", between Paul Rutherford and a female employer; a short skit introducing "the ballad of 32"; and the album ends with another Barrie voice exclaiming, "Frankie say: no more."
