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

Foreigner - Waiting For A Girl Like You

'Waiting for a Girl Like You' is a song by British-American rock band Foreigner. The distinctive synthesizer theme was performed by the then-unknown Thomas Dolby.

It was the second single released from the album 4 (1981), and was co-written by Lou Gramm and Mick Jones.

It has become one of the band's most famous songs worldwide, peaking at number 2 on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart for ten weeks and number 1 on Billboard's Rock Tracks chart for one week. On the Billboard adult contemporary chart, the song topped out at number 5. In the UK, the song peaked at number 8 on the UK Singles Chart.

'Waiting for a Girl Like You' achieved an odd chart distinction by spending a record-setting 10 weeks in the nuber 2 position of the Billboard Hot 100 chart, without ever reaching the top. It was held off the number 1 spot by Olivia Newton-John's single 'Physical' for the first nine of those weeks, and by Hall & Oates' 'I Can't Go for That (No Can Do)' for the remaining week.

Prior to the release of this song as a single, Foreigner was considered a hard rock band getting airplay mostly on rock stations and some Top 40 ones. This song gave the group more exposure on top 40 radio stations. Also because the song was soft, most adult contemporary radio stations played it as well giving this group exposure to an audience they were not really aimed at in general. This song was pivotal in exposing harder rock acts to a broader audience.
