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

Culture Club - Do You Really Want To Hurt Me

'Do You Really Want to Hurt Me' is a song recorded by Culture Club and was released as a single from the album 'Kissing to Be Clever'. Throughout the years, the song has been covered by many artists.

The third single from the band, the sweet Lovers' Rock style proved their commercial breakthrough. Initially picked up by BBC Radio 2 the song became a major hit after their memorable debut performance on Top of the Pops, which they got thanks to Shakin' Stevens being ill and not able to appear, leading the song to become a UK number 1 single for three weeks in October 1982. The song was their breakthrough in America, too, and it reached number 2 on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart in March 1983. It was also number 1 in Australia and more than twenty countries worldwide.

Originally, its B-side in many countries was a dub version of the song. In USA, it was the song 'You Know I'm Not Crazy'. On the 12 inch, an additional b-side was the track 'Love Is Cold (You Were Never No Good)'.

It was the song that put the name Culture Club on the worldwide map. It was also their first single in United States and Canada.

In the video for this song, lead singer Boy George wears a shirt bearing approximately the Hebrew words for "Culture Club" (the shirt actual meaning is "תרבות אגדה" Hebrew for "culture legend"). Mikey Craig was not in the video, he was replaced by his brother Greg.

The song was remixed a couple of times. It was remixed by different DJ, like Quivver and Kinky Roland, around 1998, to promote a Culture Club compilation called "Greatest Moments" and the single 'I Just Wanna Be Loved'. It was also remixed and presented in different remixes on Culture Club's 2002 Box Set. The original demo version, without the bridge, was also included on this boxset.

Re-released in a reggaeton remix in France, it was again a top 20 hit in the summer of 2005.
