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

Depeche Mode - Leave In Silence

'Leave in Silence' is the sixth UK single by Depeche Mode originally released on August 16, 1982. It is the first Depeche Mode single in the UK with the "Bong" label, which is still used to this day. It is also the first Depeche Mode song to have more than one remix of itself.

"Leave in Silence" appears in three versions. The single version is the A Broken Frame version with the small interlude at the end removed. There is also a longer version, and a quieter version, which is an almost a cappella version of the song, except that most of the small samples are still there. The "Longer" version of "Leave in Silence" replaces the "Album" version on the American version of A Broken Frame.

The b-side is "Excerpt From: My Secret Garden", which is an instrumental version of "My Secret Garden", which along with "Leave in Silence" eventually appear on A Broken Frame a little more than a month later. "Further Excerpts From: My Secret Garden" is a longer version which appears as a bonus track on some versions of A Broken Frame.

The video for "Leave in Silence" is directed by Julien Temple, and features the band (which, by this time, included Alan Wilder) breaking things and talking to each other while wearing face paint. The band did not include the video on the Some Great Videos VHS compilation album.

In February 2006, "Leave in Silence" was sung by Martin Gore to a Paris audience, and the song remained in the setlist for the rest of the tour. It is the first time a song from A Broken Frame was played live in almost two decades, when "Leave in Silence" was played during the Black Celebration Tour in 1986.
