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

Bananarama - Do Not Disturb

'Do Not Disturb' is a song recorded by English girl group Bananarama. It was written and produced by the production duo of Steve Jolley and Tony Swain.

Originally released as a stand-alone single in 1985, the track was later added to Bananarama's third album 'True Confessions' which was issued by London Records a year later. 'Do Not Disturb' was released in the UK, Australia, Germany and Japan but only charted in the UK.

Bananarama did not like the song. Group member Keren Woodward later said of the 'True Confessions' album, "It is all our ideas, it is what we wanted to sound like and sing about. Except 'Do Not Disturb' which Swain and Jolley wrote and which we don't think is very good. Thats why there's eleven songs on the LP instead of ten". When released, 'Do Not Disturb' was a mid-charting single, peaking at number thirty-one.

The music video for 'Do Not Disturb' directed by Simon Milne features Bananarama in a brightly lit hotel clad in long white flowing dresses and blouses similar to the single's picture sleeve. The video also cuts frequently to a set with Bananarama dancing, and doing football tricks with superimposed circular footage. The whole video has a "round" theme, from round beds, and spas to a round frame in which each member dances within. 'Do Not Disturb' is also interesting because it demarcates between the silly contrived videos from Deep Sea Skiving, and the sophisticated and sensual videos from 'Venus' onwards. For this reason, 'Do Not Disturb' is a transitional video in style and image; the trite and silly storyline is a remnant of their predecessor videos, but the tidier and glamourous image and clothes is much more aligned towards 'Venus'.
