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

Alvin Stardust - Pretend

'Pretend' is a popular song, written in 1952 by Lew Douglas, Cliff Parman, and Frank Levere.

The best-known recording, by Nat King Cole was released by Capitol Records. It first reached the Billboard magazine Best Seller chart on January 31, 1953 and lasted 20 weeks on the chart, peaking at number 3.
The recording by Ralph Marterie was released by Mercury Records. It reached the Billboard magazine Best Seller chart on February 7, 1953 at number 16, its only week on the chart.

The recording by Eileen Barton was released by Coral Records. It reached the Billboard magazine Best Seller chart on March 7, 1953 at number 18, its only week on the chart.

On the Cash Box charts, where all versions of the song were combined, the song reached a peak of number 5 in 1953.

The song was subsequently recorded by Tab Smith, reaching number 89 on the Billboard chart in 1957, and by Carl Mann, reaching number 57 on Billboard and number 56 on Cash Box in 1959.

The version that I know the most is the one done by Alvin Stardust. Alvin Stardust's cover version was a popular hit in the United Kingdom in 1981, when it reached number four in the UK singles chart. This cover was largely based on Carl Mann's 1959-version of this song.
