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

Live Report - Why Do I Alway's Get It Wrong

'Why Do I Always Get it Wrong?', written by Brian Hodgson and composed by John Beeby, was the United Kingdom's entry at the Eurovision Song Contest 1989, performed by the sextet Live Report, led by Ray Caruana.

Live Report won the right to perform at Lausanne by winning the UK national final, A Song for Europe, where they were the sixth act to perform.

At Lausanne, the song was performed seventh on the night. At the end of judging that evening, 'Why Do I Always Get it Wrong?' took the second-place slot with 130 points. Norway, Portugal, Luxembourg, France and Germany all gave their 12 point designations to the UK that evening. Despite losing the contest by six points to Yugoslavia's Riva with 'Rock Me,' the UK actually received the most sets of 12 point designations for the evening (Yugoslavia received the 12 points from four countries).

For the second year in a row, the UK entered a ballad at the Eurovision final. This song revolved around a man who took off running "where his lover won't find him," as she causes him to hurt, and leaving her presence for good is the only way to stop the pain. Crying out against his illogical love for the woman who has treated him so badly, Caruana asks, "Why do I always get it wrong?"

After Eurovision, the song placed at number 73 on the UK Singles Chart.
