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

Bananarama - More Than Physical

'More Than Physical' is a song written and performed by Bananarama. It was one of two tracks on the group's 'True Confessions' album produced by the Stock Aitken Waterman (SAW) trio instead of Jolley & Swain. The album version of the track is different from the single.

In order to capitalize on the number-one success of previous single 'Venus' (the other True Confessions track produced by SAW), 'More Than Physical' was given a UK garage-influenced make-over to sound similar to the dance-oriented chart-topper. The new version's music video further capitalized on Bananarama's new glamourous and sexy visual image by including several well-muscled, topless men in a montage of shots of the group members.

'More Than Physical' did not duplicate the success of 'Venus', stalling at number forty-one on the UK Singles Chart and number seventy-three on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100. It was a top-forty success in Australia, where it peaked at number twenty-eight. Its biggest success was in nightclubs, and 'More Than Physical' became a top-five hit on the U.S. Hot Dance Club Play Chart.

'More Than Physical' was immortalised into 80's pop culture by being featured in the popular 1986 British film Rita, Sue and Bob Too starring Michelle Holmes and Siobban Finneran. The song is featured in the scene where the girls are babysitting for Bob and Michelle, and they dance around the living room while the video to 'More Than Physical' plays on the television.
