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 - She's Out Of My Life

'She's Out of My Life' is a song that became famous as the fourth singel to be released by Michael Jackson from his successful Off The Wall album in 1980. It was the first time a solo artist achieved four top ten hits from one album.

Unlike the previous singles, which were all dance-oriented funk/disco songs, this song was an emotional ballad. Jackson's vocals on this record were judged some of his best. The song was written by Tom Bahler after Karen Carpenter broke up with him upon discovering he had fathered a child with another woman.

A crucial moment in the song occurs near its end when Jackson begins to break down in tears as he sings the word "life". The song remained in Jackson's live set for many years as a result of its popularity. Jackson tried many takes of the last few minutes of the song, but always ended the same way – breaking down in tears. Producer Quincy Jones states "when we recorded it with Michael I know it was an experience he'd never even thought about to sing in a song, cause it's a very mature emotion. He cried at the end of every take, you know. We recorded about, I don't know, 8-11 takes, and everyone, at the end he just cried, and I said 'hey - that's supposed to be, leave it on there."

I loved the Off The Wall album but most of all loved this track. The emotion of the song really comes through and it will always remain one of my favourite Michael Jackson singles.
