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

Abba – Super Trouper

'Super Trouper', at first called "Blinka lilla stjärna" (the Swedish title of nursery rhyme 'Twinkle Twinkle Little Star'), was a hit single for Swedish pop group ABBA, and was the title track from their 1980 studio album Super Trouper, written by Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus. The song, with lead vocals by Anni-Frid Lyngstad, was the last to be written & recorded for this album. 'Super Trouper' is included on the ABBA Gold: Greatest Hits compilation, as well as in the Mamma Mia! musical.

The name 'Super Trouper' referred to the gigantic spotlights used in stadium concerts and such. It is widely known that ABBA were not always fond of performing onstage, preferring the confines of the studio to being on tour. This is reflected in the lyrics, which, in typical ABBA style, are presented as happy and upbeat, yet tinged with an underlying hint of sadness. On Frida - The DVD, Lyngstad explains how she and Fältskog developed as singers, as Abba's recordings got more and more complex over the years.

'Super Trouper' was yet another successful chart-topping single for ABBA, providing the group with their 9th and final number 1 in the UK, whilst also topping the charts in Belgium, West Germany, Ireland & the Netherlands. It also reached the Top 5 in Austria, Finland, France, Mexico, Norway & Switzerland. In the United States, where ABBA never quite managed to achieve the same sort of popularity experienced elsewhere, the single only reached number 45. However, combined with 'Lay All Your Love on Me' and 'On and On and On', it managed to top the U.S. Hot Dance Club Play chart.

The music video for 'Super Trouper' can be considered the largest numbers of artists that ABBA have ever used in their music video. Other than ABBA and their friends themselves, the rest were from a circus troupe based in Britain.
