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 - Underground

'Underground' is a song from the soundtrack of the film Labyrinth, performed by David Bowie.

The track was something of an experiment for Bowie, dabbling in gospel music to a small extent, helped by a large chorus of backing vocalists and blues guitarist Albert Collins, but retaining use of synthesizers.

Steve Barron directed the video clip for promoting the song, which featured images of Bowie’s most notable “roles”, including Ziggy Stardust, The Thin White Duke (Bowie’s 1975 persona, explicitly named during the title track of Station to Station), Thomas Newton (from The Man Who Fell to Earth), Jareth (from Labyrinth) and Baal, before Bowie dances with the puppet characters from the film and turns into a cartoon himself.

The single reached number 21 in the UK charts. A video for 'As the World Falls Down', another track from the Labyrinth album, was mooted for a Christmas 1986 single release, with a 3:36 edit and another Steve Barron video made. However, this release was cancelled, for reasons that are still largely unknown. The video, comprising mainly of clips from the film, has since been released on Bowie collections. In January 1987, another track from the soundtrack, 'Magic Dance,' was issued as an American 12” only release.

Over the years it has been speculated that Underground was the inspiration for Madonna's 1989 hit 'Like a Prayer', which also features a pop melody combined with a gospel song. 1987's 'Man in the Mirror,' co-written and sung by Michael Jackson, is another possible influence on 'Like a Prayer' and, indeed, 'Underground' could have been an influence on 'Man in the Mirror.'
