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 - Shy Boy

'Shy Boy' was Bananarama's first single without the Fun Boy Three (with whom they recorded 'It ain't what you do, it's the way that you do it' and 'Really saying something'). It appears on their 1983 debut album Deep Sea Skiving and was released as its second single. It was written and produced by the production team of Steve Jolley and Tony Swain and marked the first in a long line of studio collaborations between them and Bananarama.

Released in summer 1982, 'Shy Boy' became the third consecutive single by Bananarama to hit the top-five, reaching number four in the UK Singles Chart. It also was a success in Australia, where it reached number two, becoming their first top 40 hit in that country. The B-Side was called 'Don't Call Us' but appeared on the album as 'Boy Trouble'.

The music video, directed by then Ultravox's Midge Ure and Chriss Cross, featured the girls giving a nerdy guy a make-over into a stud. When his new look attracts the attention of a sexy secretary, the girls get their revenge by dousing him with a bucket of water. It stars Terry Sharpe of 'The Adventures, who was Sara Dallin's boyfriend at the time.
