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

Men Without Hats - The Safety Dance

'The Safety Dance' was the best-selling single by the 1980s synth pop group Men Without Hats, written by frontman Ivan Doroschuk.

Released in the United States in 1982 and in the United Kingdom in 1983, the song peaked at number six on the UK singles Chart, number three on the Billboard Hot 100 and number one on Cash Box, as well as number one on the Billboard Dance Chart.

In the UK the single was actually released three times before sparking an interest on radio play. The song is the only major international hit for the group.

The music video for the song is notable for its medieval imagery. It was filmed in the village of West Kington, near Bath, in south-west England. Ivan Doroschuk is the only member of the band to actually perform in the video; the other band members can be seen standing in the entry to one of the buildings in the town square.

There has been a lot of speculation over what the song is supposed to mean. Many have thought the song was a metaphor for safe sex, and others thought it was anti-nuclear proliferation because of the nuclear images at the end of the music video. But Ivan Doroschuk has explained it was actually about being able to dance in clubs, because bouncers didn't like some of the types of dancing (like moshing and pogo) that was happening and would tell him to stop it or be kicked out of the club.
