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

Shakin Stevens - Merry Christmas Everyone

After having hits for a couple of years Shakin Stevens reunited with former producer Dave Edmunds to record an album Lipstick, Powder and Paint and the Christmas smash Merry Christmas Everyone in 1984.

Written by Bob Heatlie, this was Shakin; Stevens fourth, and most recent number one on the UK Singles Chart, making number 1 over Christmas 1985.

The single was original planned for a release in 1984 but was put back by a year to avoid clashing with the runaway success of Band Aid's charity single 'Do They Know It's Christmas?', to which he did not contribute, having been out of the country touring at the time of recording.

Despite Stevens's chart domination over the previous few years, he was not invited to perform at Live Aid on 13 July 1985

Ever since it's release it has been included on many top-selling Christmas collections and received airplay every Christmas. In 2007 the song re entered the UK top 30 and reached number 22 on the Christmas chart. This was due to the fact that downloads now make up the UK singles chart; in past years this would have been impossible unless there was a physical re-release of the song.
