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

Frankie Goes To Hollywood - The Power Of Love

'The Power of Love' is the third single from Frankie Goes to Hollywood, released in November 1984. It is taken from the album 'Welcome To The Pleasuredome'. The track was first featured during the John Peel Sessions the band performed on during 1983, which was slower and emphasized the track's original camp ironic content (such as the Hooded Claw being from cartoon The Perils of Penelope Pitstop).

'The Power of Love' followed its two predecessors, 'Relax' and 'Two Tribes', to the top of the UK singles chart, scoring the band an early December Number One, being pipped at the post by Band Aid for Christmas chart topper.

To commemorate the Christmas release, Godley & Creme directed a nativity themed video for the single, and the artwork for the single also used traditional Christian iconography. The original showing of the video on The Tube the nativity occupied the whole screen. The record company did not like this as they wanted the band to feature in the video so the borders of band members was added for later showings. This went against the bands wishes as they were happy with the original video.

The 12" mix of the song featured actor Chris Barrie's aping DJ Mike Read's banning of the single 'Relax'.

The single also featured a Christmas message from the band, entitled "Holier Than Thou".

On the cover it is reproduced the Assunta by Titian, a XVI century painting in the Basilica di Santa Maria Gloriosa dei Frari of Venice.
