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

Patrice Rushen - Forget Me Nots

'Forget Me Nots' is a 1982 hit recording by R&B singer songwriter Patrice Rushen.

Originally deemed by record label executives as a "flop", Rushen released the song and the song became a hit making number 8 on the UK Singles Chart, number 23 on the Hot 100 US Billboard Charts, number 4 on the R&B US Charts and number 2 on the US Dance Chart and is the hit she's most notable for.

Patrice Rushen was nominated for a Grammy Award on the Grammy Awards 25th anniversary for Best Female R&B Vocal Performance. Rushen had a number of songs on the R & B and Jazz charts, but this was her only U.S. Top 40 hit, her first UK top 40 hit and ranked number 86 on VH1's 100 Greatest One Hit Wonders of the 1980s.

The bass line is particularly recognizable, and was performed on the record by session bass player Freddie Washington.

The lyrics are from the point of view of one professing her longing for a rekindling with an ex-lover. She ruminates on the romance's end, and sends the lover forget-me-nots, a flower that since medieval times has been given and worn to symbolize enduring love despite absence or separation.

Along with being prominently featured in Tom Hanks hit movie, Big, the song has been heavily sampled by artists in different genres including George Michael's 'Fastlove' (which samples the song near the end) and Will Smith's 1997 blockbuster smash, 'Men in Black'.
