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

Bucks Fizz - If You Can't Stand The Heat

'If You Can't Stand the Heat' is a single by UK pop group Bucks Fizz.

Written by Andy Hill and Ian Bairnson and produced by Hill, the song became the group's fifth top 10 single (and seventh consecutive top 20 hit), eventually peaking at No.10 in January 1983.

The lyrics of the song tell of someone who is manipulative, but when faced with her own medicine, can't handle it, hence the song's title. The song was a change for the group in that it was their first single where the two female members took the lead vocals on the track - according to the group, this was done due to requests from fans. It has also been noted that the faint reggae beat on the track gives it a slight variation on the group's usually straightforward pop. The song received a positive review from Record Mirror magazine, which complimented the song's production values. The Promotional Video depicts a day in the life of Bucks Fizz, featuring rehearsals, press interviews and culminating in a live performance.

The song featured on the group's third album, 'Hand Cut', released in 1983, while an extended 12" remix was released in tandem with the 7". The single came in two different picture sleeves - both with the same photographs, but with different coloured backgrounds - yellow and orange.

An alternate mix of the song appeared on the group's 2005 compilation The Ultimate Anthology.
