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

David Bowie - Wild Is The Wind

'Wild Is the Wind' is a song written by Dimitri Tiomkin and Ned Washington. The track was originally recorded by Johnny Mathis for the 1957 film Wild Is the Wind. The song was very popular and was one of five songs nominated for an Academy Award; it was sung by Johnny Mathis at the March 1958 Oscar presentations. It was later covered by Nina Simone on the album Wild Is The Wind (1966). David Bowie recorded a version of it in 1976 for his album Station to Station. Bowie was an admirer of Simone’s style, and after meeting her in Los Angeles was inspired to record the song for his album.

The Dutch band Clan of Xymox released a cover version of the song in 1994 on their album Headcloud. Australian/English band Fatal Shore recorded 'Wild Is the Wind' in 1997 for their self-titled debut album. George Michael covered it on his 1999 album Songs from the Last Century, and Chan Marshall (Cat Power) recorded a version on her 2000 album The Covers Record, as well as a live version for iTunes in 2006. Scottish singer Billy Mackenzie also covered the song; a version appeared posthumously on the 2001 EP Wild Is the Wind and on the 2005 album Transmission Impossible. TV on the Radio sampled Nina Simone's version on the song 'Say You Do' on their self-released 2002 debut OK Calculator.In 2003, Barbra Streisand recorded the song for her album The Movie Album (2003), and filmed a music video. Nina Simone's version appeared on the trailer for the 2008 movie Revolutionary Road.
