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

Laura Branigan - Gloria

'Gloria' is a pop song originally written and composed in Italian by Umberto Tozzi and Giancarlo Bigazzi which, with English lyrics written by Trevor Veitch, became an international hit for Laura Branigan in 1982-83, selling more than two million singles in the US alone.

Although another selection, 'All Night With Me,' was chosen as Branigan's lead-off single, Branigan also performed 'Gloria' during her promotional TV appearances at the time of the album's release in early 1982 and that track was released as a single in the summer, first becoming a disco favorite and gradually accruing radio support to reach number 2 on the Billboard Hot 100 in November.

'Gloria' remained in the Top 40 for 22 weeks: its total Hot 100 residency of 36 weeks established a new record for a single by a solo female act. Certified platinum for sales of two million in the US alone, Branigan's 'Gloria' was also an international success most notably in Australia where it held the number 1 position for seven weeks in 1983. 'Gloria' also took Branigan to the Top Ten charts in the UK at number 6, Ireland at number 4 and South Africa at number 9.
