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

Michael Jackson - Billie Jean

'Billie Jean' is the name of the 2nd single from the 'Thriller' album by the late American recording artist Michael Jackson. It was written by Jackson and produced by Quincy Jones.

Originally disliked by Jones, the track was almost removed from the album after he and Jackson had a disagreement. The song's lyrics refer to a real-life experience, in which a mentally insane female fan claimed that Jackson fathered one of her twins. The song is well known for its distinctive bass line and Jackson's vocal hiccups. The song was mixed 91 times by Bruce Swedien before it was finalized.

Following the successful chart performances of Thriller and 'The Girl Is Mine', 'Billie Jean' was released on January 2, 1983, as the album's second single where it went onto to become a worldwide commercial and critical success and becoming one of the best-selling singles of 1983, topping both the US and UK charts simultaneously. 'Billie Jean' is considered one of the most revolutionary songs in history, and was certified platinum in 1989.

Honoured numerous times—including two Grammy Awards, one American Music Award and an induction into the Music Video Producers Hall of Fame—the song and corresponding music video propelled Thriller into the best-selling album of all time.

The short film for Jackson's 'Billie Jean' is considered the video that brought MTV, a relatively unknown music channel, into mainstream attention and helped to break down the racial barrier that had developed on MTV. It was the first video by a black artist to be aired by the channel, as they felt black music wasn't 'rock' enough.

Directed by Steve Barron, the video shows a paparazzo following Jackson. The paparazzo never catches the singer, and when photographed Jackson fails to materialise on the developed picture. The short film earned Jackson the Billboard Video Award for Best Overall Video and he was inducted into the Music Video Producers Hall of Fame in 1992.

'Billie Jean' helped sealed Jackson's status as an international king of pop. He will be sadley misse by all who loved his music and my condolences to his family and many friends.
