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

Mike and the Machanics - The Living Years

'The Living Years' is a popular song written by Mike Rutherford and B.A. Robertson.

The single was first released as a single by Mike and the Machanics, becoming a top ten chart hit around the world. It peaked at number 2 in the UK Singles Cahrt while making number one on the Billboard Hot 100, in the USA. It also spent four weeks at the top of the U.S. adult contemporary chart and reaching number 1 in Canada and Australia.

The Mike & The Mechanics version was initially promoted to give the impression the lyrics described the disagreements between Rutherford and his father. However, in an interview with the band, Mike Rutherford said:-

“The lyrics were written by BA and the song is about something he went through. He lost his Dad and it's about the lack of communication between him and his father before he died. There's also the irony of him having a baby just after losing his father. I had exactly the same thing happen to me at the same time, so it meant a lot to me too.”
