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 - Trick Of The Night

'A Trick Of The Night' is a balled recorded by Bananarama. There are basically two versions of the 1986 single, one is produced by Steve Jolley and Tony Swain and released as the final single from Bananarama's album True Confessions, the other is produced by Stock, Aitken and Waterman who remixed the song slightly for its single version, adding extra synthesizer lines and vocal harmony layering giving it a more "upbeat" remix by Stock Aitken Waterman (SAW) production trio, at the request of London Records.

'A Trick of the Night' was a top-forty hit in the UK, peaking at number thirty-two in the UK Singles Chart (the SAW-remixed version received the most airplay in the UK), while the ballad version stalled at number seventy-six on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100. The single made a very brief appearance on the Australian singles chart, where it peaked at number ninety-nine.

The latter release signalled a change in direction for the group: in 1987 they would release their next album, fully produced by the trio (SAW) that was responsible for Kylie Minogue, Mel & Kim and Rick Astley's phenomenal success in that year.

The lyric of the song is about someone who has gone to seek his fortune in the big city and ended up a rentboy. The 12" single featured a remix version of both versions of the song, plus the B-side track 'Set on you', which has all the trademarks of a Stock/Aitken/Waterman remix written all over it.
