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

Madness - Shut Up

'Shut Up' is a pop song written by Suggs and Chris Foreman. It was recorded by British pop/ska band Madness, and was featured on the band's third album 7. It was released as a single on September 11, 1981, spending 10 weeks in the UK Singles Chart. It reached a high position of number 7.

The song tells a story of a criminal who, despite obvious evidence, tries to convince people he is not guilty. Even though the song is called 'Shut Up', the two words do not appear in the lyrics at all. However, they were the final words of an additional verse which was part of an early version of the song.

The promotional video for the single released featured the band dressed as a group of criminals, then later as policemen, while lead singer Suggs remained dressed as a villain. In one sequence, the costumed band gather round as Chris Foreman (in police uniform) plays the song's guitar solo on a "Super Yob" guitar.

In addition to its single release and appearance on the album 7, 'Shut Up' also appears on the Madness collections Complete Madness, It's... Madness Too, The Business, Divine Madness (a.k.a. The Heavy Heavy Hits) and Our House. It also features on two US Madness compilations, Madness and Total Madness.
