Christmas Music for the Apocalypse #13: The Power of Love, by Frankie Goes to Hollywood

Unlucky number thirteen seems appropriate for our vampire apocalypse song.

I’ll protect you from the hooded claw,
Keep the vampires at bay…

It’s an odd little song – or big song, I should say, as it’s nothing if not dramatic. What do vampires have to do with Christmas? What’s Christmassy at all about this, except for the video? Well, somebody made the connection, and it can’t be denied that the power of love is at the heart of Christmas, and it’s certainly essential for surviving life on the edge. Finding someone to love and protect who will also love and protect you is going to be vital in the post-apocalypse world.
