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

Boy George - Everything I Own

'Everything I Own" is a popular song written by David Gates. Originally recorded by Gates's band Bread for their 1972 album Baby, I'm a Want You the song quickly became a popular standard recorded by (among others) The Connells, Jack Jones, Ken Boothe, Olivia Newton-John, Georgie Fame, Boy George, *NSYNC, Jude, Rod Stewart, Nicole Scherzinger, Chrissie Hynde, Greg London, and Hernaldo Zuniga. Although the song is frequently interpreted as a romantic love song, Gates actually wrote the song as a tribute to his late father.

The original hit number five on the American Billboard Hot 100. The version by Ken Boothe reached number one on the UK singles chart for three weeks in October 1974.

The version by Boy George reached number one on the UK singles chart for two weeks in March 1987 becoming his first hit as a solo artist. It was also his first solo single after a departure from his band, Culture Club. Owing more to the Ken Boothe version, the sweet reggae style was reminiscent of his earlier debut hit with Culture Club, "Do You Really Want to Hurt Me?". Coming at the time of his arrest for possession of heroin it provided a major boost to his career. It was a number one in many countries (including UK, Canada, Italy, Norway and South Africa) and top 10 in many markets too.

Boy George played this song many times in his live shows. He did re-record the track in an acoustic style (named the Hippy Trippy Mix) and it was released on the American cd single of Everything I Own, a re-release from 1993. It was also remixed in a dub version for the Culture Club 2002 box set.
