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

Eurythmics - Never Gonna Cry Again

'Never Gonna Cry Again' was the debut single release from Eurythmics, taken from their debut album 'In the Garden'. It achieved little commercial success, managing number 63 in UK singles chart, especially compared to Annie Lennox and David A. Stewart's previous hits with The Tourists.

The single release was accompanied by Eurythmics first music video, a medium for which they would later receive notable acclaim. As of 2009, the 'Never Gonna Cry Again' video remains commercially unavailable, although stills from it were used for the sleeve art of the 'In The Garden' album, and footage from it can also be seen during the song 'Jennifer' on the Sweet Dreams video album. The music video features Lennox walking about on a beach in a red dress.

The single sleeve design featured an eerie picture of Lennox made up to look like a gargoyle.

Co-produced by respected krautrock producer Conny Plank, the recordings also featured two members of krautrock band Can.

Musically, 'Never Gonna Cry Again' is a moody, melancholic number. It is notable for containing a flute solo performed by Annie Lennox, one of the few times that Lennox was to use the instrument in her pop career, despite having studied it at the prestigious Royal College of Music in London. The song also is based around a reggae style bass line, a musical trait that numerous new wave bands experimented with at the time.

The single's B-side, 'Le Sinistre', is an experimental piece, featuring musical arrangements more akin to a horror movie soundtrack than a pop record.
