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 - My Girl

'My Girl' is a song by British ska/pop group Madness from their debut album, One Step Beyond. It was written by Mike Barson.
The song was released as a single on 21 December 1979 and spent 10 weeks on the UK Singles Chart peaking at number 3.

The song was reissued in 1992 following the success of the reissued 'It Must Be Love'. It reached number 27 in the UK Singles Chart.

The song first made its way into the band's set when they were performing as The Invaders. The first performance of the song came in July 1978, when it was performed by the band at the "Blind Alley Shop" and simply titled 'New Song'. Barson originally performed lead vocals, and even sang on the demo for the song. This is because Barson wrote the song, about his girlfriend at the time, [Kerstin Rodgers]. However, Suggs took over the vocal duties before long, and sang the album version of the song.

When the group performed the song on Top of the Pops in January 1980, they were the first band of the new decade performing on the TV show.
The music video for 'My Girl' features Madness performing the song at the Dublin Castle, London. For the video, the stage was extended especially, in order to ensure that the band could perform comfortably
