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

Erasure - Who Needs Love Like That

'Who Needs Love Like That' is the debut single released by British synth pop duo Erasure. The song was released in the UK on Mute Records in 1985 as a prelude to their debut album Wonderland.

'Who Needs Love Like That' is an uptempo pop song written by Vince Clarke. The lyrics are a cast-off to a destructive love relationship, in which the protagonist asks "who needs love like that?" The music video takes place in a mock Western, with Clarke, Andy Bell and various extras dressed as cowboys. Both Bell and Clarke appear in dual roles, the others being woman's drags.

Upon its release, the song spent two weeks in the UK singles chart, peaking at number fifty-five.

In 1992, the song was remixed and tacked on to the end of Erasure's greatest hits collection Pop! - the First 20 Hits (although in the U.S. it only appears on the cassette release). The 'Hamburg Mix' (slightly retitled to put 'Like That' in parenthesis) was released as a single and became a Top 10 UK hit, peaking at number ten.
