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

Bonnie Tyler - Total Eclipse Of The Heart

'Total Eclipse of the Heart' is a song written and produced by Jim Steinman and recorded by Welsh singer Bonnie Tyler in 1983 on her fifth studio album 'Faster Than The Speed Of Night'.
The song remains Tyler's most successful song, peaking at number 1 in the United Kingdom, United States, Australia and Canada. At its peak, it sold 60,000 copies per day, and approximately 6 million copies in total. It won the Variety Club award in the UK for best single of 1983.

Tyler's career reached new heights with this release and put her as the only Welsh artist to hit the number-one slot in the U.S Billboard charts.

According to Meat Loaf, Steinman had given the song, along with 'Making Love (Out of Nothing At All)' to Meat Loaf for his 'Midnight at the Lost and Found' album. However, Meat Loaf's record company refused to pay for Steinman and he wrote separate songs himself. Steinman's songs were then given to Bonnie Tyler and Air Supply, respectively.
The music video was directed by Russell Mulcahy. It was story-boarded by Jim Steinman and drew inspiration from the 1976 film Futurewold.

The Gothic themed video features Bonnie Tyler clad in white, apparently having a dream or fantasy about her students in a boys' boarding school. Young men are seen dancing and participating in various school activities such as swim team, karate, fencing, football, and singing in a choir. The video was shot at Holloway Sanatorium.

The original version of the song, on Faster Than the Speed of Night, was just over seven minutes in length. Thus, an edited version was, and still is most commonly played on radio. The radio version is four and a half minutes, and removes the entire third verse and trims the extended fade-out ending. The music video version is roughly one minute longer than the radio version.
