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

Alphaville - Forever Young - Single

'Forever Young' is the title track Alphaville's 1984 debut album. Though it was not the group's highest-charting European hit and failed to reach the American Top 40 despite three separate U.S. single releases, 'Forever Young' became something of a pop standard and has been covered by numerous artists since its 1984 debut.

Originally released by Alphaville as a single in 1984, 'Forever Young' was available in both its original mix and also in a dance version titled the "Special Extended Mix." Over the years the band has released several remixes and demo versions of the song.

The song's music video shows the band performing in one of the halls at Holloway Sanatorium in England. A number of ragged people ranging from children to the elderly awake to observe the band, then walk through a diamond-shaped glowing portal.

Just a year after the song's initial release, pop singer Laura Branigan covered 'Forever Young' on her album 'Hold Me' and began a tradition of performing the song as an encore at her concerts until her death in 2004

Amid rumours that Branigan was going to release the song as a single Alphaville's re-released the single in the US, but it did not prove to be massively popular. Branigan's version, though promoted on stickers adorning the album, subsequently remained an album cut in the US.

The Alphaville version was released a third time in the US in 1988, to promote Alphaville: The Singles Collection, and peaked at number 65, their highest charting (and also last) single on the Billboard Hot 100.
