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

Toyah - I Believe In Father Christmas

'I Believe In Father Christmas' is a song by Greg Lake (most famously a member of King Crimson and Emerson, Lake & Palmer), with lyrics by Peter Sinfield. Although it is often categorised as a Christmas song this was not Lake's intention.

Toyah covered the song on a performance broadcast on 26th December 1982 on the ITV programme Pop Goes Christmas.

Renee and Renato - Save Your Love

If there’s one thing the 1980s had that seems to have been lost in more recent times it is the really cheesey song. They don’t come much cheesier than Save Your Love, the 1982 Christmas UK number one hit from classy duo Renee and Renato.

As mentioned Save Your Love hit the top of the charts at Christmas, but it was actually released back in October of 1982 entering the charts at a less than auspicious 54 in the charts. Somehow the song got discovered however and it rose up the charts both in the UK and The Netherlands and Norway, staying at the top of the British charts for no less than four weeks.

Renée (real name Hilary Lester) and Renato (full name Renato Pagliari) did release two other songs, Just One More Kiss and Jesus Loves Us All, but neither repeated their initial success and so Renée (sorry, Hilary) went back to her private life whilst Renato died in July this year.

The song was written by creator and voice of 1980’s TV robot Metal Mickey, Johnny Edward, with his wife Sue. Perhaps the song would have been funnier still had Renato been replaced by Mickey… Perhaps more surprising is that the song has even been covered several times, including most recently by Daniel O’Donnell and Mary Duff.
