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 - One Better Day

'One Better Day' is a song by British band Madness from their 1984 album 'Keep Moving'.

The song was written by Graham McPherson and Mark Bedford and was released as a single in the UK, and spent 7 weeks in British charts peaking at number 18.

The single was a last minute choice, as 'Victoria Gardens' from the same album was originally slated to be the album's second single. The remixed version of 'Victoria Gardens' intended for the A-side was instead included as a bonus track on the 12" single. This was the last single under the Stiff Records label, before the band's creation of their own label, Zarjazz Records.

As the single was the final release under Stiff Records, the label did not want to film an accompanying music video, and the band had to fund it themselves. Mike Barson flew from Amsterdam especially to be a part of the video. The resulting music video was filmed in Arlington Road, just outside Arlington House. Incidentally, Arlington House is the first line of the song, and was a local homeless refuge, one of the Rowton Houses.

Most of the video shows the band members as homeless people, except a few clips showing them performing the song. It also shows Suggs dancing with his wife Bette Bright, who plays a homeless woman in the video.
