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

T'Pau - China In Your Hands

'China in Your Hand' was recorded by the band T'Pau and released from their album Bridge of Spies. A re-recorded version was released as a single in October 1987, spending five weeks at number 1 in the UK Singles Charts and is arguably the song for which the group is best known for, though their debut single 'Heart and Soul' was a much bigger hit in the United States.

'China in Your Handwas the 600th song to top the UK charts, famously stopping The Beatles George Harrison from hitting the top spot.

The song's lyrics refer to the novel Frankenstein and its author Mary Shelly. This is more readily heard on the longer album version of the song, as the re-recorded single edit omits most of the more obvious references to the book. The song's title was more unclear however and when quizzed, co-writer Ron Rogers was unsure of to what it referred. Lyric writer Carol Decker explained that it is the effect that if you hold a china cup to a light, you can see your hand through it - therefore 'china in your hand' means something that is transparent.
