Uit vrije wil - Het Goede Doel

In 1988, the Dutch government launched an advertising campaign to stimulate the use of condoms. This was in the time when Aids was a relatively new phenomenon and safe sex was considered to be the only way to avoid an almost certain death. The campaign used the image of a bee and a flower, which was considered, shortly thereafter, a stupid move.

Be that as it may, the song 'Uit vrije wil' ('Free will') by Het Goede Doel tied in to the campaign, and was essentially a song about safe sex. The single did not chart.

My collection: 7" single no. 635
Found: Disco Market, Den Haag, 1988
Cost: 3,5 guilders
Tracks: 'Uit vrije wil' / 'Uit vrije wil (instrumentaal)'
