Links Are Dead - I Know

I keep getting Emails from people asking me to re-upload the links and music etc. I think people are just getting to those particular pages so are not reading the reason for the dead links.

So I am putting this in place so hopefully people will read it and stop Emailing me about it.

The reason the links are dead is that my account with Media Fire has been closed with all 11,000 files lost. That is why you can not download the things and No I can not re-upload them.

Eventually I will start doing that again when I have found something suitable. In the meantime this blog will be information only blog.

Thank you all

Thomas Dolby - she Blinded Me With Science

'She Blinded Me With Science' was relased in 1982 from Thomas Dolby. The single first appeared on the album The Golden Age Of Wireless. Dolby is associated with New Wave, a orm of pop music incorporating electronic intruments which was popular in the early 80's with bands such as The Human League and Gary Newman.

the song chorus 'She Blinded Me With Science' plays upon the coloquial British expression 'to blind someone with science', meaning to deliberately confuse someone by giving the impression of highly complex knowledge. However, in the song it is interpreted as a strightforward reference to the natural sciences.

The song features interjections from the British scientist and TV presenter Magnus Pyke, who repeatedly shouts "Science!" and delivers other lines in a deliberately over-the-top 'mad scientist' voice, the most famous line of which was, 'Good heavens, Miss Sakamoto! You're beautiful!'
In the music video, Dolby commits himself to a Home for Deranged Scientists. Throughout the course of the video, Magnus Pyke (as the Home Doctor) tries to diagnose what he is suffering from, all the while being seduced by Miss Sakamoto, a secretary in the home. Interspersed into the video, various deranged scientists operate fanciful inventions on the grounds of the Home and act deranged with normal scientific items. Although a top ten hit in the US, making it to number 5, the song was not a hit in the UK as it only eventually made it to number 49 in the singles chart.
