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

Johnny Logan - Hold Me Now

'Hold Me Now' is a song composed and performed by Johnny Logan from Ireland.

In 1987 Johnny Logan won the Eurovision Song Contest with the song. Logan had previously won with 'What's Another Year?' in the 1980 Contest and would go on to write the winner of the 1992 Contest ('Why Me?' for Linda Martin for whom he had previously written 'Terminal 3' at the 1984 Contest)

The song holds the distinction of being one of the very few self-composed songs to win the Contest, and is regarded by many fans as one of the high points of Contest history, recently being voted the third-best song in Eurovision history (behind 'Waterloo' and 'Nel blu dipinto di blu').

After Logan had been proclaimed the winner with this song, he was overcome with emotion during the reprise and was unable to reach the high notes in this part of the song. As he had when he won in 1980 with 'What's Another Year?', he shouted "I still love you, Ireland".

The song was performed twentieth on the night. At the close of voting, it had received 172 points, placing 1st in a field of 22.

In the UK the single made it to number 2 in the charts and was a top ten hit through out Europe.
