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

Kylie Monogue - The Locomotion

'The Loco-Motion' is a 1962 song written by American songwriters Gerry Goffin and Carole King.

After an impromptu performance of the song at an Australian Rules Football charity event with the cast of the Australian soap opera Neighbours, Kylie Minogue signed a record deal by Mushroom Records to release the song as a single.

The single was released on July 28, 1987 in Australia, Sweden and Italy under the title 'Locomotion'. The song was a success in Australia, reaching number one and remaining there for seven weeks.

The success of the song in her home country resulted in her signing a record deal with PWL Records which enabled Kylie to work with the successful team Stock, Aitken and Waterman, who had produced the single.

The 1988 release of the song in the UK debuted at number two on the singles chart — the highest entry on the UK singles charts by a female artist — due to strong 7" single sales and radio airplay. It remained in the number two position for four weeks before falling to number three. With sales of 440,000 it was the 11th best selling single of the year. The song became Minogue's third top five rated single in the UK and remains one of her most successful single releases to date.

During late 1988, Minogue traveled to the US to promote 'The Loco-Motion', where she did many interviews and performances on American television. 'The Loco-Motion' debuted at number eighty on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 and later climbed to number three for two weeks. The song was Minogue's second single to chart in the U.S., but her first to reach the top ten.

The music video was filmed at Essendon Airport and the ABC studios in Melbourne Australia.
